Evolution are proud to be hosting an International Season of Physical Theatre workshops led by artists from across the world. The workshops, which can all be booked individually or as one package, explore many and various aspects of physical performance, including clown, comic dance, presence/action, and solo physical/visual performance. All of these workshops are open to actors, performers, dancers, clowns, artists and any-one else interested in this creative process, regardless of whether they are a professional performer or not.

 

This weekend (7-8 October), Dorothy Max Prior (UK) invites you to Dance Yourself Stupid, exploring the many and various possibilities of comic and popular dance. Participants will learn classic eccentric dance routines; explore a number of popular dance rhythms such as Charleston, Tango, Jazz, and Mambo; and subvert well-known dance traditions such as the Can Can and Saturday Night Fever, giving them a comic twist. 

Special offer: just £50!

On October 14th/15th, Ricardo Puccetti (from renowned Brazilian company Lume Teatro) invites you to explore The Clown and the Comic Feeling. The clown is not a character but the dilation of the ingenuity and ridiculousness in each of us, revealing the comic and human inherent to each individual. Using a unique methodology developed over 25 years by clown master Ricardo Puccetti, this workshop allows those aspiring to be clowns to come into contact with the ‘stupid and ridiculous’ aspects of themselves.  

Cost: £70/£60

In The World Reflected in a Drop of Water: (Self)-Portrait in Solo Performance making, November 4th/5th, Yael Karavan (UK/Israel) explores some of the tools developed in her solo performance process, drawing on elements of physical and visual theatre, Dance, Object Theatre, Butoh and mime. Karavan is offering a palette of tools and possibilities in the creative process exploring ‘presence’, metamorphoses, rhythm, intention, qualities of movements, imagery and counterpoint as well as how to relate creatively to material, objects and space. 

Cost: £70/£60.

Finally, in From Energy to Action, 18th and 19th November, Naomi Silman (UK/Brazil) introduces the principles of LUME Teatro’s ‘energetic training’ which leads participants to an immersion into the body – its sensations, qualities of energy and physicalities. A wide-range of practical exercises cover fundamental elements of the actor’s craft such as generating and maintaining energy and presence, expansion and retention of impulses, precision, the dynamics of physical actions in time and space, articulations and body segmentation, the state of play and relation between performers, as well as the use of external stimuli such as music, images, objects and texts.
