Creative Contemporary Theatre (online 7-week term)
Starts 30 September 19:00-21:00
Explore how physicality, movement, rhythm and improvisation help you unlock inspiration and creative flow to make contemporary theatre. On the final day you will present a sketch to the group for feedback. This can be the beginning of a new storytelling/performance act that you can take forward into the next term.
During the sessions you will develop movement awareness, non-verbal storytelling, movement techniques and vocabulary (based on Lecoq and other physical theatre languages) as well as improvisational tasks and exploration of solo, duet and group acts. The sessions are designed for actors, dancers and people who are interested in movement, experimental theatre practises, collaboration and devising.
What to bring
- A water bottle
- A notebook and a pen to write down notes or personal discoveries
- You don’t need a lot of space to do this workshop, just enough to move with arms and legs outstretched (think of the size of a yoga mat).
You will need access to Zoom (www.zoom.us), and internet connection. We’ll be in touch ahead of the event by email, for more information and instructions.
Even though it’s a digital event, spaces are limited. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. We have significantly reduced the price due to the impact of COVID-19.
If you have any queries or require more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
