Skills Development Programme
Etienne Decroux’s Corporeal Mime is at the base of all the creative work of the company. We are placing the actors’ entire body (including voice) and its ability to communicate at the centre of our exploration.
Alongside our critically acclaimed productions, we have developed and delivered a high quality Skills Development Programme in the UK and abroad, ranging from one off workshops (London International Mime Festival, UCL, Derby University, University of Leeds) to year-long physical theatre and Corporeal Mime modules (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Fourth Monkey Actor Training, East 15).
All our activities are tailored to the group we are working with, so every workshop is different. We are open to the possibility of working with all groups, including those with disabilities - please contact us to talk in more detail about how we could work together.
We offer a number of tailor-made opportunities:
- Open workshops and Masterclasses for professional and semi-professional performers, students and community groups
- Talks and Seminars for students, emerging artists, practitioners, teachers and community groups
Please email us at email@example.com to receive our Skills Development Pack.
Advanced Corporeal Mime (evening classes)
Part of the Evolve Programme at Fourth Monkey Acting School
May 1st to June 5th 2020
6pm to 9pm each Friday
Fourth Monkey House, Finsbury Park, London
POSTPONED, NEW DATES WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY
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.
Please note that this is an advanced training and is only open to participants with previous Corporeal Mime training.
