Intro To Lecoq Training
with Adam Paolozza of TheatreRUN
Curious about the Lecoq School? Ever wondered how the training works?
This unique, 5 day workshop offers students an intensive introduction to Lecoq training.
During each session we will focus on the following areas:
The Moving Body: Using physical exercises and exploring Mime-based technique students will improve rhythm, balance and develop powerful tools for gestural expression.
The Body in Play: Students will develop their acting muscles through various games, improvisations exploring the dramatic territories of Commedia dell’arte, Clown (Beckett), Tragedy (Shakespeare) and Melodrama (Chekhov).
We will also explore the Neutral Mask, using leather masks made by Amleto Sartori
The Lecoq pedagogy explores the powerful link between emotion, expression and movement.
‘Tout bouge’ – Jacques Lecoq.
This is a unique opportunity for performers, directors, writers or choreographers of all skill levels, who are interested discovering the underlying laws of theatre and how the body, gesture and the theatrical space express passion.
WHEN: October 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 from 10am-3pm
WHERE: Zuke Studios, 1581 Dupont Street (in the Junction, just West of Symington).
