Broaden Your Mime (Workshop)
Nola Rae25 Jan 10.30am
We will explore the art of doing one thing at a time and the quality of movement and articulation necessary to make a performer's intentions clear. Choreography of comedy with and without music and rhythm exercises, so important to comedy, will also be part of this class.
This is for enthusiastic professionals or amateurs, who want to know more about what makes visual theatre tick and who are not afraid to move.
Wear practice clothes and bring one juggling ball.
