Welcome back John Britton!!!
Actor and Ensemble training for actors aged 16+. Class dates: Monday 20th March, Monday 27th March, Monday 3rd April, Monday 10th April, 6-9.30pm (This is a 4-week training course. Participants need to be available for at least 3 sessions)
This 4 week training session will dig into ‘Self-With-Others’, the improvisation-based psychophysical training process which is the heart of John Britton’s work, and of his companies: DUENDE and The DUENDE School of Ensemble Physical Theatre. Self-With-Others is an approach to training that stresses playfulness, detail, ensemble, liveness, presence, experimentation, physical dynamism and — above all — pleasure.
Based in John’s work as a physical theatre performer, the training is now used by performers from all disciplines, including dance, theatre, improvisation, circus, site-specific performance and acting for camera. Self-With-Others combines fixed exercises with duet, solo and group improvisations. The workshop will introduce you to a series of core principles which will help you be dynamically present in all your performance, will encourage you to identify and trust your unique skills and will help you establish the ability to work spontaneously with others.
The work will be physically dynamic. You should bring loose clothes to work in, water to drink and a good attitude to share with others.
