The artist is constantly using their work to help people to ‘see again’, ‘think again’ and ‘feel again’. Central to the artist’s process is learning through experience, exploration and expression.
Led by David Glass, this 5-day intensive live workshop, will be exploring Devised Object Theatre, rooted in physical and image-based theatre and storytelling. The workshop will combine skill and technical practice with explorative, experience-based investigations into movement and drama.
Using his Alchemy-Extraordinary five-stage devising process we will start from the body to explore principles of spatial dynamics, the three emotional centres of the body, the basic grammar of movement, fixed points, élan, the elements of nature and the struggle of pushing and pulling.
David Glass is an award-winning solo performer, theatre director, writer, designer, lighting designer, filmmaker, teacher and creative thinker. He is one of the principal founders of the Physical/Visual, Devised, Ensemble and Applied Theatre movements. David is a leading international theatre teacher and has taught and influenced three generations of theatre makers in 73 countries.
For people with some previous performance experience, either as theatre students or as professionals.
“David is one of the great teachers and artists of our time who has never been afraid to examine truth in all its manifestations; both beautiful and ugly, and has touched thousands of souls in a life-long quest to connect and build meaningful relationships” Amit Lahav, Artistic Director, Gecko
Special COVID-19 measures in place:
• There will be no physical contact
• We will always try to keep a reasonable distance (2m) away from each other - we realise this may be frustrating, but bear in mind that every individual has a different level of comfort and this needs to be honoured.
• At any point in time, if people wish to sit out an exercise or to wear a mask during the exercise they can certainly do so
There are also extra precautions throughout the building to ensure social distancing for the safety of everyone. Whilst at the Town Hall you must abide by all Covid-19 Safety Measures in place, which you can find here.
In the event of a tighter lockdown in January, the leaders of all live LIMF workshops have made contingency plans to move their courses online. Before booking a place, participants should ensure that they would have stable internet access and a space in which to work, should that eventuality arise, as refunds cannot be given resulting from a change in the teaching delivery method.
