Footsbarn Travelling Theatre Workshop

Special intensive workshop with an international touring theatre company Footsbarn Travelling Theatre



Workshop for English speakers.

Footsbarn Travelling Theatre is one of the world’s leading touring companies performing for the most part in one of its circus big tops but also in theatres thoughout the world.

Renowned for its exciting adaptations of classics such as Shakespeare & Moliere transcending the barrier of language with its unique blend of visual theatre, music and magic. In thirty seven years, Footsbarn has produced nearly 60 plays and travelled to the six Continents and is a truley multi-national group. The actors possess a multiplicity of talents and theatrical techniques all of which inhabit and enrich every performance. Footsbarn began life in cornwall in 1971 rehearsing in a barn owned by the Foot family, hence its name. In 1984 the company left Britain to take its brand of theatre to international audiences and remained without a base until 1991 when a farm was purchased in central France, La Chaussée. Today its base is both a fully equipped production centre complete with workshops, rehearsal space, office and studios but also a centre for education. Over the last 15 years Footsbarn has organised and staged numerous workshops, which have been taught by both actors from the company as well as proffessionals associated with Footsbarn.

Five of the present troupe were trained at the International school, based in Paris, of Jacques Lecoq. The school is based in movement , improvisation and discovery ,it's  aim being that the students are ready to create their own  performances through a constant state of openness to give and receive from the other players and the space they are in.

Through exercises with the observation and breaking down of  movement , the participants will discover   the chorus and the space, clown ,mask ,voice through improvisation. This with the teachers feeding them the student should feel that it is only in the urgence that we find the essential.

Workshop is a part of the festival Footsbarn en Tchéquie.
