Physical Theatre (Workshop)
David Glass26 Jan 12.00pm
Rooted in the body of the performer, emotion, physical metaphor and action become the key elements of the technique. Beginning deep preparation of the performer, the first element explored is Elan, the French word for ‘life fullness’. David will teach the performer how to have a greater presence on stage. The workshop focuses on the three emotional centres of the body, the basic grammar of movement and fixed points, as well as elements and the struggle of pushing and pulling. Physical styles of theatre including Comedia, Melodrama and Realism will be touched on during the final day.
This class is for people with some previous performance experience, either as theatre students or as professionals.
