The phrase ‘all in’ has numerous applications: it can refer to a poker player gambling all their chips, but it has also been used as an advertising slogan by the likes of ADIDAS, and the name of a Paris strip club. This workshop will explore the multitude of possible meanings of a single image, looking at how theatrical forms of representation are changing in our era of multiple visual and aural channels. Participants should think about the phrase ‘all in’ and bring with them to the workshop a piece of music, text, an image, a movement or another source of inspiration.
