Physical Articulation for Comedy
Thu 14 Feb
TIME10am – 2.30pm
Some comical and physical techniques
Physical Articulation for Comedy involves body isolation, contemporary mime, applied mask technique, mimicry, object manipulation, and contextual improvisations. This introduction to physical theatre movement technique concentrates on the articulation of the body and interactions with each other and objects in context with movement and space to create clear non-text comical narratives and expressions. Participants will learn how to isolate movements, use personal eccentricities to a comical advantage, and how to create and break rhythm in order to create laughter.
