This workshop offers physical techniques for expanding body awareness and imaginative possibilities for the actor, drawn from the teachings of the French theatre pioneer, Jacques Lecoq.
Lecoq’s methodology liberates the actor as creative artist, with a conviction in the body as an instrument capable of communicating an infinite range of possibilities. His principles are rooted in fundamental theatrical traditions, and are as applicable to naturalistic and classical acting, as they are to more heightened styles of ‘physical’ theatre.
Over the course of four intensive sessions, participants will work towards forging an embodied connection to emotional truth, creating characters, improvisation, and working with text.
