Performance LABDevised Theatre & the Actor-Creator
“There are two impulses in theatre: to be frivolous or to make rules”
“For me, self-discipline has never corresponded to a voluntary
adhesion to norms invented by others. It has always been the
first step towards breaking the chains.” Eugenio Barba
Performance LAB: Devised Theatre & the Actor-Creator is a 3-month creative training
project for actors interested
in deepening their practice (both as an individual artist and as part of an ensemble group) while developing a full-length
theatrical piece to be presented at a professional venue in London.
The Lab functions as a theatre
company, meeting twice a week to train and work on a performance
upon different theatrical traditions, we work towards a combination of preparation, technique
During the sessions, you may expect to work on:
- Psychophysical preparation/practice
- Physical theatre elements
- Movement & composition
- Creative research, improvisation
& devising (through both collective and individual work)
- Dramaturgies: the space, the
performer, the text, the scene.
