Thecenter for movement theatreprovides training for the ‘actor-creator’. It is appropriate for both the serious beginner and the experienced actor. The work embodies a dynamic and physical approach to acting and is strongly based on the work of master teacher Jacques Lecoq. It is the search for a theatre of creation, exploring the relationship between life and art, for those who wish to gain more insight into their abilities as actors, directors and writers. Using the body to find essential gesture, action and expression, participants discover and develop their own art. The body recognizes and can represent everything that moves...it is the prime element in the journey from life to the theatre.
