Creating & Playing with Characters

08 Jan 2022

London International Mime Festival

Two-day workshop from John Mowat

Who is it for?

Anyone, but minimum age is 18.

What will it cover?

Being able to take on various characters is an important part of the actor’s craft. So in this course a series of exercises and improvisations are used to build strong physical and vocal characters. These are then explored in a variety of situations to see how they interact and relate with each other.

John’s teaching is based upon creating an environment where you can fall flat on your face and then get up and laugh about it. A place in which to play, explore, experiment, make discoveries and go on adventures.

Who is leading the workshop?

John Mowat’s career in the theatre began in 1980 when he performed his first solo show. As a theatre maker, performer and director creating over 60 performances to date, his highly visual style of comedy has toured in more than 50 countries throughout the world.


Two-day course.

Saturday 8 & Sunday 9 January, 11am – 6pm
