Text and Movement


Working on extracts from new plays by European writers (in English translations) we will explore the way in which movement can be used both as a route to developing characters and finding detail in the text, and also as a way of making the meanings behind the words clear to an audience.This is a practical, on your feet session so please wear comfortable clothing. All scripts provided. 


Chris studied at Birkbeck, and has worked as a Director and Assistant Director with companies including The National Theatre, Opera North, Theatre Royal Bath, Headlong Theatre Company, Bolton Octagon, Birmingham REP, and West Yorkshire Playhouse, where he spent a year as Resident Assistant Director.


Michael trained at the Jacques Lecoq School in Paris after completing a BA in Performance Theatre at York University. He is Artistic Director of Square Peg Theatre who focus on combining new writing with physical theatre to create bold, cinematic and highly choreographed stories for the stage.
