Workshops & Learning
To fall is to suddenly go towards the ground without intending to. You lose control of your weight and gravity takes over. You cannot pretend and you cannot lie. The fall is real and true.
Through the study of Etienne Decroux's Corporeal Mime repertoire and technique, in this 5-day intensive online workshop you will focus on the use of weight and how to turn it into a main dramatic force to be real and true on stage.
Designed for professional and semi-professional performers.
These workshops will now be taking place online. Ticketholders will now have been sent a link to join the livestreamed workshops on Zoom.
Workshop leader Guillaume Pigé is an actor, director, mime and magician. He formed Theatre Re in 2011 and has directed each of the company's productions to date. He is an Associate Teacher at R.A.D.A, Head of Devising at Fourth Monkey and an Associate Artist at The Point, Eastleigh. He is regularly invited to give workshops in the UK and internationally.
‘Guillaume Pigé and his company Theatre Re have been teaching and working creatively on RADA's MA Theatre Lab for some years now. Through the rigor and theatrical poetry of corporal mime / expression, the training offers our students a concrete way of extending a sense of what's possible for the actor body onstage, beyond naturalism. The training is rooted in a tradition of discipline and exploration, providing the students liberating and clear vocabularies for creating highly physical work, deepening a mutual respect for craft in the ensemble.'
Ian Morgan, Course Leader, RADA MA Theatre Lab
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.
