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 live 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.
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
Special COVID-19 measures in place:
• Create a COVID Secure protocol agreement to be signed by each participant
• Adjust the content of the workshop so that participants are always able to follow social distancing measures. Wearing masks will not be mandatory but every participant will have to stay at least 1m away from everyone else at all times and avoid touching
• Provide all workshop participants with a personal chair and set up the space following social distancing measures
• Provide additional hand sanitiser in the room and cleaning wipes
• Touch base with all workshop participants at the end of each day to ensure that everyone feels secure about the workshop environment. Also be available for more one-on-one catch ups to discuss personal concerns regarding the COVID Safety Measures
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.
