LE MOUVEMENT COMME POINT DE DÉPART
This workshop explores movement as the starting point for devising and creating. Departing from a series of concepts based on the world of Decroux’s corporeal mime, participants will play with concepts such as rhythm, articulation and weight to build up tension between bodies and in space, work on presence, complicity, suspension and a concrete way of creating metaphors through the body. We will play at the intersection between dance, theatre and mime.
This workshop has previously been taught at Liverpool Physical Fest, East 15 Acting School, The Drama School Mumbai, Eastbourne House Arts and at Micadanses.

Fool's Cap Theatre
Fool’s Cap’s work is marked by visually striking images and physicality. The creative process focuses on the actor and on his physical relationship with the other elements on stage such as set, costumes, lights, music, projection. The result is the creation of an imaginary landscape that moves and transforms the space. Exploring major themes of human nature such as life, death, spirituality, perseverance and love, the story becomes as touching as it is comical, as simple as it is complex.
