Join Artistic Director of Theatre Re Guillaume Pigé for an in-depth 5 day workshop to hone your skills in Corporeal Mime.
Through the study of Corporeal Mime, we will look at how we sculpt and breath life into intricate, inventive and thought-provoking visual and physical work. Looking at the articulation of space, body and weight, dynamorythms, and counterweights, participants will enhance their performance skills, develop their taste for non-naturalistic work, and push the boundaries of what theatre, without a playwright, can do. Throughout the week, each participant will work towards the making of a short show solo piece developed in a ‘Theatre Re’ way.
This five-day workshop is designed for professional and semi-professional performers, actors, dancers as well as visual artists, students and recent graduates. No previous experience of Corporeal Mime is required to join, only your curiosity and playfulness.
