The Monkey House
Advanced Corporeal Mime, 1st May - 5th June
Friday evenings 18:00 - 21:00
£80 for six weeks
Designed for professional and semi-professional performers, participants will be immersed in Theatre Re’s vital approach to Étienne Decroux’s Corporeal Mime. From body articulation to counterweights, from dynamo rhythm to mobile statuary, and from improvisation to composition participants will discover how to play their body like a violin, how to create movement in stillness and how to allow inner impulses flow into expression.
Guillaume Pigé is an Actor, Director, Mime and Magician. He formed Theatre Re in 2009 and has directed each of the company's productions to date, which have all toured nationally and internationally to critical acclaim. Originally from France, he has been living in the UK for the past 12 years. He trained with theatre makers and directors such as Andrew Visnesvski, Steven Wasson, Corinne Soum, Daniel Stein and Thomas Leabhart. He is an Associate Teacher at R.A.D.A, Head of Devising at Fourth Monkey Actor Training, and is regularly invited to give workshops in the UK and internationally.
Please note that this is an advanced training and is only open to participants with previous Corporeal Mime training.
