Fool’s Moon Workshop: Workshop 2: Voice and Character Building with Lachlan Werner

Workshop 2: Voice and Character Building with Lachlan Werner

Thurs 29th February, 7.00-8.30pm

Our second workshop is led by award-winning queer physical comedian, ventriloquist and Fool’s Moon regular; Lachlan Werner. This workshop focuses on using the voice to build comedic characters. We will be accessing play and stupidity by freeing your voice. Using vocal exercises and games developed through Lachlan’s process of making solo shows, participants of all levels of experience will explore using their voices and bodies (sometimes separately, sometimes together) to build characters and worlds. Our voice is one of our most readily accessible tools for finding fun and big ideas – join Lachlan to open your imagination and voice box!

About Lachlan Werner

Lachlan Werner is comedy’s poof prince of puppets. The “funniest new ventriloquist on the block” (Telegraph), clown and live artist, he was runner up for LGBTQ+ New Comedian Of The Year ’22 and a nominee for BBC New Comedy Award, ISH Best Newcomer Edinburgh Comedy Award, Off-West End Cabaret Award, VAULT Comedy Breakthrough Award. His debut solo show ‘Voices Of Evil’ has been a total sell out hit at Soho Theatre (2022/23), Edinburgh Fringe 2023, VAULT Festival, Brighton Fringe, London Clown Festival, winner of ReviewsHub Best Show Award, and nominated for a Soho Playhouse New York Award. He can frequently be seen yelling at himself with a small squishy witch. He is graduate of Ecole Philippe Gaulier and a regular collaborative member of the Fool’s Moon collective.
