The Monkey House
Every Friday, 11th October - 15th November, 18:00 - 21:00
Designed for professional and semi-professional performers, participants will be challenged to try, through a unique vocabulary, how to magnify the expression of their body in a theatrical and skilful manner. During this process you will dive into the intensive physical training of Corporeal Mime to explore body articulation and coordination, playful exploration between body and gravity, three dimensions of the body (lateral, rotation and depth), rhythmics of the body, body ripple. This short course will be valuable for actors and performers interested to enhance their ability to physicalise thoughts and emotion in a playful way on the stage.
