Physical Theatre School 2019 with Acting Now

I will be leading two Physical Theatre courses in Cambridge this upcoming autumn

BOOK YOUR PLACE HERE

BEGINNERS

This course will introduce you to the core principles of physical actor training: presence, breath, movement and voice, improvisation and devising simple performance material. A great opportunity to explore or continue exploring Physical Theatre Techniques. Our workshops are an alternative to conventional drama lessons and are based on body movement, freedom and creativity. Students will continue practising physical exercises, improvisation and movement, and will be encouraged to devise their own short solo and ensemble theatre pieces, developing self-awareness and discovering the expressive possibilities of their body, gestures and voice.

WHEN: 8 consecutive sessions on Thursdays starting 3rd October 2019

TIME: 18.30 - 21.00

WHERE: Ross Street Community Centre, Ross Street, Cambridge CB1 3UZ

INTERMEDIATE

This course will continue to build on the main aspects of performer training and especially ensemble work, developing your physical and spatial awareness, sense of rhythm and interconnection with fellow participants. We will also take a deeper look at using voice, objects and text in physical theatre. We will explore what it is like to devise original performance material, first in small groups, then as a whole group, leading towards a short ensemble performance which will be shared with an invited audience.

WHEN: 8 consecutive sessions on Wednesdays starting 2nd October 2019

TIME: 18.30 - 21.00

WHERE: Ross Street Community Centre, Ross Street, Cambridge CB1 3UZ

SHIFTY at Voila! Europe Theatre Festival 2019

SHIFTY at Voila! Europe Theatre Festival 2019

15 - 16 Nov 2019

at Rich Mix Theatre (London)

BOOK HERE

Today outrageous is the new normal, loneliness is rife, magic is lost. But what happens when we encounter an unexpected moment of connection? Immerse yourself in a world that slips between the real and the surreal.

A Woman walks out of the front door and onto the streets beyond. A Fox steps into the street light and gives her a slow smile with the hint of a wink. 

Foxtale Ensemble comes together from cities across Europe to share an experiential performance inspired by magic realism. A storyteller opens a box and invites the audience to enter an urban world. Multiple cities, otherworldly soundscapes and shape-shifting characters are unapologetically pieced together in a performance that balances on the edge of the real and the surreal, slipping into either at any given moment.


This is a premiere work-in-progress, created during the Voila! Residency at Rich Mix.
