Taiwan Festival: Tomato - Workshop

(This is a past event and is no longer running)

Tomato Workshop by Chou Kuan-Jou

Alongside the highly anticipated London premiere of Edinburgh Festival smash-hit Chou Kuan-Jou’s Tomato, The Coronet Theatre is thrilled to present a unique and exciting opportunity to explore the process of creating this playful, provocative and experimental piece to the stage.

The content of the workshop is derived from exercises in the artist’s practice of “Lust Body”, which have evolved from rehearsals warm-up for Tomato. The workshop explores curiosity and desire through tactile sensation exercises. Question the void between binaries such as yes and no, giver and receiver, active and passive, and the possibilities of the power dynamic reversal. *Be respectful, be playful, and be kind to yourself.*


Suitable for: Professional and semi-professional actors, directors, dancers and theatre-makers. Due to the involvement of touch and exploration of desire, this workshop is only suitable for adult participants.

Attire: Participants should be dressed in loose-fitting, comfortable attire that allows unrestricted movement. Please consider how much skin you are comfortable exposing.

Note: This workshop involves an amount of “touching/be touched” exercises. Please consider your comfort level, and physical and mental state before signing up.

Experiencing Tomato is crucial to getting the most out of the workshop. In order to gain free access to this exclusive artistic development opportunity, you must be a ticket holder for Chou Kuan-Jou’s performance. Book here
