Inviting you to work on a specific story or piece, and find its depths within you. Preparing it for performance at a fireside, an open-mic night, or on a stage.
Bring a story, or basis for a devised work, which you are familiar with & have ‘taken in’: A Myth, Fairytale, a story you’ve written, a concept for a piece which you have a basic structure for.
Though the workshop’s primary focus is on specific performance techniques, time will be given to your personal emotional landscape ‘sitting beneath/ as foundations’ to the story or performance piece you bring.
It is recommended that you attend this course only if you have previously attended courses with Deborah, OR another physical theatre teacher: Familiarity with physicality in performance will allow the group to build on specific techniques – as well as focus on personal unique style (this calls for basic experience in use of physical techniques as a starting point). Please write to Deborah directly if you have questions regarding this; email@example.com
We will work with the following focuses:
1) Exploring Your Natural Physicality – the basis for your style
2) Breaking Out of Your Rhythm – the basis for dynamism
3) Looking at Life Themes – connecting you to the story/ piece of work
4) Voice & The Inner World
5) The Generative Image
6) Structure – The relationship between the structure of the story or devised piece, with the use of space & movement.
At the end of the session on Sunday April 1st there will be a closed sharing circle of work.
