to be presenting an International Masterclass with Ronnie Burkett,
at The Pit, Barbican Centre, London EC2Y 8DS on Thursday May

designs, builds and writes his extraordinary adult shows, performing
them solo all over the globe. Three performance groups using

talk about and demonstrate elements from their latest work-in-progress
in conversation with Ronnie, with the aim of exploring ideas
and the way the writing or scenario may be approached.

interest in puppet and object animation. There will be questions
and contributions from the audience.
