The Ume Group School: Lecoq with Clara
"The body knows things about which the mind is ignorant." -Jacques Lecoq
Participants will explore Lecoq's technique of embodying the natural world, specifically using the elements of earth, wind, water, and fire. We will explore how each of these elements can affect text, creation of character, and ultimately the devising of scenes.
Participants should prepare a monologue/piece of text, preferably Shakespeare.
