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. 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 for English speakers.

Workshop focuses on the making of mask, which the students can use in the Acting with mask workshop and try it out straight away. The mask making itself gives us the opportunity to a deeper discovery of the means of human face expressions and their effects in nonverbal communication.

The workshop will run for two days with a-one-day break. It is essential to let the materials dry. Therefore it is a fast mask making using already made cast of one's own face. For professional purposes the process usually takes longer. For this workshop purpose we'll use gypsum cast, ceramic clay, newspaper, glue, colours, rubber bands, wires, beads...

At the beginning we'll focus on the theory of mask making, after that we will present the mask collection which the company made and uses in their long practice. And finally the participants will choose a theatre character whose mask they will make.
