One Day Workshop with Clara Marullo
Saturday May 30th 2020
The Monkey House
Inside Out/Outside In - Saturday 30th May, 10:00 - 17:00
What is the best way to find the truth of an emotion: inside-out or outside-in?
Incorporating the methodology developed by Adishakti Laboratory for Theatre Arts in Pondicherry, India - based on a synthesis of traditional and contemporary forms - this workshop will explore new and different ways of approaching the emotions for performance, involving breath, body, energy centres and voice.
After a physical warm-up to open the emotional centres, we will explore nine basic emotions from an outside-in perspective focussing on breath, energy centres, posture and movement. At the same time, we will draw on our own practice of emotional recall, investigating the potential power in fusing eastern and western traditions.
We will then take this work into text, connecting body and breath with voice to stimulate the imagination and find new ways of creating truthful, reliable performances show after show, take after take.
Please note that this workshop occurs across the entirety of 1 day.
Clara received a degree in English from Oxford University, before training as a singer at London’s Royal Academy of Music. Over the years, she has deepened her practice via numerous courses and masterclasses in the UK and the USA, plus a recent stint at the Adishakti Laboratory for Theatre Arts in India.
