Brú Theatre’s Physical Theatre Summer School, 16-20 and 22-27 August 2021, Ireland

Publish Date: Jun 14, 2021

Deadline: Jul 02, 2021

Event Dates: from Jul 16, 2021 12:00 to Jul 27, 2021 12:00

Brú are delighted to be offering adult theatre makers a 2 week intensive Physical Theatre course in the Town Hall Theatre, Galway. A fun and fast paced fortnight of intensive workshops diving into some practical techniques for making and performing physical theatre. 

Run by Berlin’s Philippa Hambly and Brú’s James Riordan, we will be meeting from 10am-5pm Week 1 Monday 16th- Friday 20th and Week 2 Monday 22nd-Friday 27th.


Week One we will look into:

  • Embodiment 

  • Playfulness

  • The poetry of the body

  • Movement principals


    Week Two we will look into: 


  • Collaborative devising

  • Building physical characters

  • Writing from the body

The first week will focus more on the dynamic space, movement, physicality, and play, while the second week will look more closely at ways of applying these principals to construction. Although we will be making links between the first and second weeks, you might consider yourself already a ‘mover’ and more interested in exploring structures for creating work, or you might be new to physical theatre and simply interested in opening that space for your practice. You can choose whether to participate for one week or both. 

Across both weeks we will draw on multiple physical languages including mask work, clown, and mime, and you are invited to bring the broad scope of your own practice into the room with you! Expect to find no answers whatsoever, but hopefully lots of juicy questions to chew on and take away with you.

The workshop draws on Jacques Lecoq based technique, and we would also like to acknowledge our teachers Amy Russell and Thomas Prattki - as well as countless other wonderful teachers who have inspired us
