PHYSICAL AND DEVISED THEATRE: TWO DAY WORKSHOP

PRESENTED BY DAVID GLASS ENSEMBLE
The artist is constantly using their work to help people to ‘see again’, ‘think again’ and ‘feel again’.

David Glass will lead an intensive introductory 2-day masterclass in Physical and Devised Theatre. This workshop will introduce participants to David Glass’s hugely practical approach to physical and devised theatre. It is rooted in the body, the principle that all life and expression grows out of movement, and that theatre is the imagination made manifest through the body and voice of the performer.

Day 1 – Physical Theatre

Physical metaphor and action. Participants will learn a number of expressive tools: elan, struggle, pushing, pulling and being present, and the foundational grammar of impulse, journey, fixed point and the archetypal emotions of Joy, Grief, Fear and Anger.

Day 2 – Devised Theatre

David will take the participants on a whirlwind experience of his five phase Creative Practice, which forms the basis of his devising process used by theatre companies and creative organisations around the world.

For participates aged 18+ with some knowledge of theatre making – come prepared to move.
