Grotowski Short Course 24th October - 28th November
Thursday evenings 18:00-20:30
£80 for six weeks
This intensive and highly physical short course inspired by the teachings of legendary theatre practitioner Jerzy Grotowski, aims to promote the relationship between actor, space and spectator.
Lead by Magda Tuka, this six week short course will focus on spacial awareness and how the actor and the space work together. Via Negativa will dictate the approaches throughout the course to enable the actor to eradicate obstacles and lead to a state of impulse and essence.
The course aims to help the actor discover a deeper physical understanding of mind, body and space in performance contexts, stripping back to achieve a greater performance experience which they will be able to take directly into any performance setting.
Magda Tuka is an Actress, dramaturge, performer, movement teacher, president of company Ja Ja Ja Ne Ne Ne (Tuka Wach)
Magda has been working in theatre for over 20 years, starting with mime courses and later working for 10 years as an actress and workshops leader with Warsaw-based theatre group Studium Teatralne. In 2006 she graduated from the Warsaw Theatre Academy (MA) and the following year received her Actor's Diploma from ZASP.
