Saturday Intensive 

17 July

10:00 - 17:00

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:

    • Guided improvisation in which participant will be invited to (re)discover and (re)build a physical language. The lab will include creative writing.
    • Ensemble Storytelling Lab: In framed improvisation, participants will be invited to explore their previous discoveries in relationship to each others, building short Ensemble pieces. 
 The workshop is social distanced adaptable and suitable for any type of performers. 

      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.
