Sharing a drink at our first online workshop

Much hilarity was had by all this afternoon when participants from Suffolk and London met online to begin our remote creative project HerStory: The Covid Chronicles.

We learned some libretto and movement from the opera’s drinking song; “The Revenue Man”. The song is inspired by the 18th Century smuggling community’s practice of getting their local customs officers drunk whenever a questionable shipment was due in.

Creative tasks for the next online workshop on 17th November include:

  1. Water-themed photographs or visual images
  2. Water-themed words, descriptions, poetry or prose
  3. Playing with cling film/cellophane and web cameras to create watery/underwater effects
