2 DAY ENSEMBLE WORKSHOP WITH JOHN BRITTON 28/29th SEPT- LIVERPOOL

  |   Workshops

Physical Fest presents a 2 day workshop- Self-With-Others with John Britton (Director of The DUENDE School of Ensemble Physical Theatre) 28/29TH Sept- Liverpool.

 

Self-With-Others is an improvisation based approach to training the individual performer within ensemble. The work is joyous, physical and transformatory, and is used to teach performers across disciplines – theatre, dance, clowning, site-specific work, performance art and improvisation.

 

Combining individual and group work, structured improvisation and fixed training exercises, Self-With-Others is a profound psychophysical approach to encountering your blockages, possibilities and needs. It asks you to be brave in acknowledging your pleasure, urgency and desire as a performer. It asks you to be generous to others and to yourself. It asks you to play in detail and with fire in your eyes. It asks you to dare to laugh and to dare to go deeper into your own performance.

 

Self-With-Others takes performers to greater levels of physical discipline, connectedness, spontaneity, liveness, boldness, creative freedom and joy.

 

John Britton is an internationally renowned director and teacher of physical performance. He is Artistic Director of DUENDE and Founder and Director of The DUENDE School of Ensemble Physical Theatre.As a director, John has recently directed interdisciplinary work in Mumbai, Bogota, Seattle, Athens, and Bangalore.
