It is through the mastery of movement and immobility that the actor’s physical training finds most worth. The actor who, conscious of the artificiality of the stage, has chosen to take responsibility as author in the search of new creative forms, must acquire the fundamentals necessary for bestowing on the body the role of protagonist.

MIME WORKSHOP Weekend (WE)

NEXT WEEK-END MIME WORKSHOP:

Walks, The feet as proletariat of the aesthetic (WE)

9th and 10th March 2019 (10hr) - 160 €

Give different forms to a walk by changing weight upon the ground.

Our feet, far from being dumbly led, determine the quality of our movement. Their way of gripping the ground can give to our walk a chosen elegance, or equally affect a disastrous clumsiness.

This workshop provides work on our weight distribution. How does our body in movement need communication with our feet to facilitate our displacement? In pushing back against the ground our spinal column finds its upright position. Our walk depends on these different ways of pushing the earth: with force, speed, lightness, etc.

It is through our walking, thanks to the intelligence of our feet, that the archetypes of the stage find life.

SPRING MIME WORKSHOP Weekly (HB)

SPRING MIME WORKSHOP

Corporeal Mime and the Body as Mask

From 29th april to 3rd may 2019 (25hrs) 325 €

Through this approach to their art, actors may show their art and not their character.

The mask which shrouds the face, and the removal from realism, allows us to understand the importance of the mastery obtained through the mastery of the mask.

The mastery of the body in movement just as we master a mask, where the eyes of the head are added to the eyes of the bust, as well as the eyes of the hips.

And finally, a face which becomes the mask, which gives the actor all possible dramatic force.

MIME WORKSHOP Weekend (WE)

Les Enfants du Paradis, mime and narrative; when the great masters performed pantomime

1st and 2nd june 2019 (10hrs) ­ 160 €

The workshop provides an insight into the different aesthetics of the Art of Mime, departing from the studies made by Etienne Decroux in the 1930s, which developed the base of the Marche Sur Place, and the work on fixed points.

We take a look at the myths of mime evident in the film ‘Les Enfants du Paradis,’ where several characters develop from a particular and defined gesture.

This workshop seeks to give participants the opportunity to discover the physical richness and theatricality akin to this art form.

 

 

 

MIME WORKSHOP Weekend (WE)

Mime, Play and Improvisation (not yet scheduled for the 2019 season!)

In December 2019 (10hrs) ­ 160 €

Improvisation is a founding exercise for the training of the actor, as important as the mastery of the body obtained by the study of our technique, that of the Mime Corporel Dramatique. The internship, which aims to awaken the spirit of the actor, starts with themes of improvisations, clear and uncluttered, allowing him to confront the different possibilities of body games.

Faced with the various challenges that will be proposed to him, he will have to appeal to his imagination, thus discovering himself in his dramatic and bodily qualities.
