Join The Presenter Network for an interactive online workshop featuring Geologise Theatre. Science, Story and Song: Roberta and Matthew from Geologise Theatre will take you on a journey from inception to performance, focussing on how to tell stories about science through the media of theatre and music. They will deconstruct their latest musical, to demonstrate some useful techniques that are applicable to performers and communicators of all kinds, including singers and non-singers! Expect dancing detectives and singing scientists aplenty.

Matthew Kemp and Roberta Wilkinson are PhD students in Earth Sciences at the University of Oxford. They have been studying geology and singing together for six years and now combine their passions for science and music as Geologise Theatre, as of course All the World’s A Stage! Their latest show is an hour-long musical for families, in which a team of science detectives solves the chilling case of “What Killed the Dinosaurs?”. You can find them on Twitter @wearegeologise.

The session will consist of a one hour online workshop followed by a one-hour facilitated group discussion.
