Workshop – Intro To Lecoq Training, with Adam Paolozza of TheatreRUN

In Workshops on April 20, 2011 by danceumbrella

Curious about the Lecoq School? Ever wondered how their training works?

This unique, three-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 and mask work drawn from Commedia dell’arte, Clown, Tragedy and Melodrama. 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: May 18, 19, 20 from 11am-3pm
WHERE: Pia Bouman’s Studio, 6 Noble St. Toronto, ON (in Parkdale, one street West of Dufferin on the North side)

FEE: $200
