A year after the first lockdown, the Physical Storytelling Lab aims to support performers to (re)connect with their artistic practice in a physical space. Although sessions will be intense, with long and physical explorations, playfulness and sense of freedom will be highly celebrated. For the second part of the workshop, two groups will be ideally created and devised short pieces will be shared to each other.
Through the workshop, participants will be guided into an exploration of the relationship between bodies and space, investigating repetitions, weights and rhythms. A particular attention will be given to the concept of negative spaces as a powerful storytelling tool, in which they will deepen their experiences of distances, silences and emptiness.
The workshop will happen in two parts:
Emilie Largier is a physical theatre performer and maker, co-artistic director and founder of RUCKLE Theatre. After studying Cinema, Arts & Design then working as a Costume maker in France and Belgium, she moved to London where she embraced a performer path developing her own physical language. She works as an actor, theatre and movement director. Fascinated by the relationship of different bodies in space, she is particularly interested in the exploration of negative spaces as a powerful storytelling tool. Her work is deeply rooted in devising processes, widely inspired by European cinema, dance theatre and underground movements such as punk and techno / rave culture.
To be able to participate in this workshop, all attendees will be asked to provide a Lateral Flow Test result before entering the building. These tests can be done in a local testing centre near you (find the nearest @ https://www.gov.uk/find-covid-19-lateral-flow-test-site) or they can be ordered for free on the gov.uk website.
Please note: Lateral Flow Test result should be taken and submitted a maximum of 3 days before the event start, and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entry without a Lateral Flow Test result will not be permitted, and your ticket will be invalidated without a refund.
