Introduction to Physical Theatre (6 Week Course)
This event is now over. Check the What's On for upcoming events!
Discover how to use your physicality to create engaging and compelling non-verbal performance with Physical Theatre teacher and performer Dominique Fester.
Dominique's work is rooted in her belief that the language of the body and the visual impact it has should be given at least as much importance as text, or voice.
This course will give you a physical grounding in the methods Dominique learned through her training at L'École Internationale de Théâtre in Paris, founded by Jacques Lecoq in 1952 combined with her vast experience of dance improv, comedy improv, clowning and fooling.
This course aims to increase your confidence and give you the skills to express yourself through your physicality, whilst providing you with the tools to devise work as part of an ensemble. At the end of six weeks you will be well on your way to developing a clear expressive style as a physical theatre performer, with a growing confidence in working in groups.
Dominique Fester has been teaching and performing in physical theatre for the last 15 years. She studied Contemporary Dance at Rubicon Cardiff, and trained at the Lecoq School in Paris where she learnt advanced performance and theatre making. Dominique teaches physical theatre across the South West and Wales alongside performing with and providing physical theatre training for the company members of fooling ensemble Beyond The Ridiculous run by Holly Stoppit.
