1. Physical Theatre laboratory by Javier Murugarren
One-day immersive lab on phonetic and physical improvisation
This laboratory is aimed to anyone interested in developing the imaginative potential of the body through the investigation of movement and voice regardless of their level of experience. We will facilitate effective tools of movement, voice and text research to boost personal and collective search.
The proposed exercises include elements of release technique, physical theatre, vocal/text research, body weather and partnering. Exploration topics will be proposed.
The class begins with an aerobic training using stretching, coordination exercises and games to invigorate the body and sharpen the mind. During the second half, we’ll use binary/group manipulations, improvisation and instant composition to fire up creative processes. Priority will be given to observation and feedback.
How do we interconnect body and voice in a clear and intuitive way? How can we integrate different disciplines into a concrete form? How can we generate, evolve and mutate the identity of our movement?
Time: 14 to 19 pm Saturday 27 November, Studio ReMO (see programme)
