A workshop for those wishing to learn about solo performance. In this 2-hour, online workshop, Rhum and Clay take you on a step by step journey towards developing a dynamic and cinematic solo performance style. Drawing on their training at Ecole Jacques Lecoq and the methodology employed in The Stage Award-winning Mistero Buffo, expect to learn techniques which will allow you to embody multiple characters, change physical space in the blink of an eye and cultivate a rich and diverse theatrical world using just your body.
We will start with movement analysis focusing on the some of the 20 movements to examine how we can use rhythm, tempo and the dynamics of movement to aid physical storytelling. We then learn a solo storytelling routine, which is inspired by the techniques of cinema and enables the physical solo performer to change space and character instantaneously. The workshop culminates in the participants recreating an iconic scene or moment from cinema as a solo performer.
This workshop is ideal for anyone with an interest in solo performance, from experienced actors to students to those just starting out in the industry.
