STAGE ENCOUNTERS physical acting course
10 week physical acting course
What works on stage? Why? What can I do to enhance my stage presence, what makes encounters on stage interesting to watch? what tools can I use?
Here you shall find out!
This 10 week course is a classical physical acting training through simple encounters on stage – that enable you to create and understand physical improvisation as a working ground for scene creation as well as character creation & development. It is perfect for beginners to advanced levels of acting. In fact both levels really support each other in learning new skills.
In this course we use the very precise physical art of acting taught by Jaques Lecoq – integrating animal studies, children studies and mask play and turn it into a usable way of instantly facilitating it for your improvisations on stage.
These skills will be a useful base for classic dramatic acting as well as for improv.
We will work with hightened energy levels (creating stage & character presence), explore the precision of physical expressions, the economy of movement, motor of action and social masks by exploring the different moments of people meeting on stage – in direct improvisations as well as in collective dramatic creations.
We also put a focus on general improvisation skills that will enable you to build a scene together with your fellow actors.
“You bring a brick and I bring a brick. Then together we build a house.” Del Close
This time we start by simply entering the stage, creating the space, work with the rhythm of pauses, stillness, actively listening to the moment and let that moment inform us about what is going on on stage – what kind of relationship is happening when two people meet randomly.
Every change of energy,
