This intensive 6 week course is designed for actors, theatre-makers, dancers and circus performers who would like explore the dramatics of physical performance making, improvisation and ensemble story-telling using the approach and techniques of Jacques Lecoq. The aim of this course is to offer a range of tools that develop the participants’ theatrical language and increase their understanding of the relationship between the performers’s body, movement, theatrical space and physical expression. The course will focus on:

– physical improvisation through Lecoq’s concept of ‘play’
– the analysis and articulation of movement
– the dynamics of colours, materials, music and poetry
– the work with the Neutral Mask
– the work with objects
– devising as well as character and narrative development techniques

At the end of course the participants will be asked to present a short piece on a given theme. All the materials will be provided at the workshop.

This course is for industry professionals and those who already have some experience in physical theatre/dance/circus.
