    This five-day workshop run by Theatre Re will be an introduction to the work of Etienne Decroux and his assistants.
    The workshop will be led by Theatre Re’s director and R.A.D.A Associate Teacher Guillaume Pigé and is addressed to professional and semi-professional performers and theatre makers.
    You do not need any previous experience in mime, or physical theatre but just the desire to learn and play. 

    The mime gives physical reality to ideas and emotions. He makes the invisible visible. 
    Mime is about using the body, not replacing words by gestures, but about communicating something greater than words alone can achieve.
    From body articulation to counterweights, from dynamo rhythm to mobile statuary, participants will discover how to play their body like a violin, how to create movement in stillness and how to be ready for action.

    Throughout the workshop we will look at:
    • Technique & Vocabulary: we will work on articulation (space, rhythm, inter-corporeal), counterweights and walks.
    • Repertoire: along with various figures of style, we will study a piece chosen from the modern and post-modern mime repertoire.
    • Ensemble work: we will look at skills and technique to build a strong ensemble: to listen and to react.
    • Improvisation: it will be a first step towards action and the devising process.

    There are limited places on the workshop so we recommend booking as soon as you are able to.
