Expired: Tragedy - Actors Workshop with Igne Barkauskaite and Up The Ante Theatre Company

Ante Theatre - Up The Ante

Cost: £30, £25 concession

Live Dates: Saturday 25th March 2017 3-6:30pm

This workshop is inspired by the teachings of Jacques Lecoq and is designed for actors and theatre makers who are interested in researching the territory of tragedy and increasing their understanding of this theatre style through the body. The aim of the workshop is to move away from the psychological interpretation of the tragic text coming towards a physical exploration of the founding principles of the style. The workshop will offer a range of exercises and will focus on the relationship between the main dramatic elements of tragedy - the Hero and the Chorus. The participants will be asked to memorise a short monologue from a selected tragedy in advance as well as to prepare a brief political speech of their own choice which they will use as their working material during the workshop. This workshop is open to all levels.

Igne is a theatre maker, and a graduate from “L’Ecole Internationale de Theatre Jacques Lecoq” in Paris and also holds a BA in Drama at UWE (Bristol). Igne’s interests and creative research revolve around the themes of contemporary culture, urban life, globalisation and intercultural dialogue. She is interested in new writing and seeks to create a daring work through the use of inventive theatrical language, strong physical expression and musicality. Igne has collaborated with Missing Pieces (London/Bristol), The Mechanical Animal Corporation (Bristol), The Edible Theatre (Bristol), Shakespeare&Co (Paris), INDA (Syracuse) and others.


Some feedback on Igne's workshops:

Engaging and thought provoking as well as developing skills that will assist in creating performance. I really value the physical aspect of acting, too often acting is performed cerebrally. The trainer Igne was excellent and made sure we all got involved. I think the number of people who attended was also about right. ~ Shekhar V.

I really enjoyed the workshop and would definitely like to attend another one. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to continue my training/exploration and connect with other artists. It was extremely refreshing and I felt very welcome. ~ Sophie C.

Really enjoyed the second workshop done with Igne. Great to have access to her knowledge and insight to better inform my process as an actor. Look forward to the next. ~ Tabitha F.

I enjoyed the warm-up and games used to bring the group together. I felt very welcomed and I really enjoyed the teaching and exercises set by Igne. ~ Linda M.

The workshop was great. Igne is an incredible workshop leader! I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and hope to come back. I'd never done much physical theatre work before but it was a well structured class and really enjoyable. ~ Meg P.

Really enjoyed the Lecoq workshop. Good atmosphere and Igne set the tone perfectly. Very inclusive and great opportunity to work with people from different backgrounds/ages Would definitely come to another one. ~ Liz M.
