More about the Physical Theatre Summer School

Discover theatre beyond words and engage with your body to create compelling physical theatre.

What to expect
Over the five days we will explore the mechanics of movement; breaking down how the human body moves and improving our performance expertise. This will be a warmly held, pleasurable environment, where we develop a technique as a group, creating our own style by asking, “What’s working?” We will gently and joyfully discover and extend our natural co-ordination through dance improv exercises and physical theatre exercises including:

• Replay – the art of bringing dramatic storylines to everyday life. We will draw out your strength and flexibility and raise your heart rate.
• We will develop a palette of tools to work with, much like visual artists – exploring colours, the elements, fire, water; how to embody materials – the crunch of broken glass under-foot or the burst of a flock taking flight.
• We will explore rhythm – how a skipped heartbeat can change a whole meaning.
• Neutral Mask – the stripping down of our natural movement away from the quirks and habits we’ve developed towards a more simple, archetypal way of moving.
• Each day you will be challenged to create a piece of work in response to a theme, which will be performed in groups – a process known as Autocours (student investigation).

Expect joy and laughter!
