SUMMER INTENSIVE 2009
THE ART OF MOVEMENT AT THE SERVICE OF THE ACTOR
WITH MASTER TEACHER: NORMAN TAYLOR
June 22nd - 26th
After two highly successful visits in ’06 and ’08, Norman Taylor, who taught alongside Jacques Lecoq for 20 years, is returning to New York for a five-day summer workshop.
Beginning with the premise that everything moves, this workshop is an exploration into the inherently physical nature of theater. It will explore three fundamentals of Jacques Lecoq's approach to artistic training: the analysis of movement, physical storytelling, and the actor as creator. By drawing upon the inspiration of music, painting and poetry, the actor will explore styles of storytelling that include spoken word, pantomime blanche, the language of gesture and sound. Working from short stories by Chekhov and Poe, the workshop will culminate in the collective creation of original physical theater pieces.
This workshop offers the actor a unique opportunity to develop a heightened sense of their body in performance with one of the world’s greatest teachers.
SPACE IS LIMITED
Norman Taylor taught at the Ecole Internationale de Théâtre in Paris for 20 years. Prior to this, he was a student of Lecoq's himself, first as an actor and then as a student of his pedagogy. From 1998 - 1999, Norman was the Pedagogical Coordinator at the school. He now teaches Lecoq's techniques throughout Europe and Latin America and is on faculty at the renowned Lassaad International School of Theatre in Belgium. This is Norman’s third visit to North America.
Participants do not need to have studied Lecoq technique but do need to have a working familiarity with one or more theatrical movement techniques.
