Improv course image

Who could benefit from this course?
Theatre Makers and Performers looking for inspiration and tools to create original pieces of Physical Theatre.
Theatre makers who wish to incorporate more physical theatre elements into their current work.
This course is suitable for students who would like to feel more confident in using their bodies in performance.

How does it work?
In a supportive and friendly atmosphere, we will explore and use different methods to create work including;
- Laban 8 Effort Actions
- Lecoq States of Tension
- Butoh  (moving from the imagination)
- Creating work inspired by an object
- Creating work by working with an item of clothing
- Creating work with a photograph, picture or painting as a starting point.

Pieces of work will be created in pairs, groups and as solo performers.

What do you gain?
You will gain inspiration, confidence, & new methods of creating performance work.
Some of the work you create may be a springboard or inspiration for further work or you may want to develop your ideas from class into full length pieces.
Following the course you will be encouraged to perform your work at Theatre in the Pound, our scratch night, to the general public and any other audience you would like to invite.
