Physical Theatre Advance Course - The Exploded Body

Physical Theatre Advance Course - The Exploded Body in London on 29 January 2018
29 January 2018 -- 23 April 2018, 1900 - 2200
This Course in open to any participants with the interest in Devising Theatre and in creating their own work. A special focus will be on the relationship between the body and space where it exists.

This course will ask students to actively participate in a creative lab, in which we'll be working with materials, colours and structures. We will be investigating the relationship between structural, architectural language and body movement using basic materials: Paper, cardboard, wood-sticks, wire, etc.

We will be creating experimental objects that can be put in motion, (portable structures, masks and dynamic objects), and we will explore the relationships we can create by integrating them with movement and the body.

- Silence before words: discovering a state of neutrality and immobility.
- Universal poetic awareness: Dynamic study of elements and materials.
- Construction of portable structures.
- Dynamic approach to sounds and poetry, in relationship with portable structures.
- Embodiment: understanding the balance of forces and their dynamics, transferring them into the body.
-Final collaborative devised project.


This course will offer you the possibility to create your own work with a final devising project.

We intend collaborative devising as the fundamental key for the emerging of new and original theatre work.

Training students to look and see, to work in an atmosphere of generosity, commitment and personal responsibility, is more important than training them as creative artist.

You'll be challenged to trust your imagination, your artistic vision, and other people's ideas.

Our aim is to generate a creative discussion within your own practice. This will be the essential element for the creation of a new performance language and artistic autonomy.
