What is Physical Theatre?
Modern physical theatre has grown from a variety of origins and is steeped in ancient traditions of both Eastern and Western cultures. It is a style of Theatre performance where a story is expressed primarily through the use of the body, but also contains the integration of the vocal, mental and emotional resources of the performer. Physical Theatre can include a wide variety of styles, approaches and aesthetics that can include dance-theatre, movement theatre, clown, Bouffon, puppetry, mime, mask, Commedia dell ’Arte, vaudeville, and circus.
The word autumn comes from the ancient Etruscan root autu- and has within it connotations of the passing of the year. Autumn marks a transition in seasons where many people turn inward, both physically and mentally. Since it is the season of the primary harvest, what better way to celebrate the autumn than to harvest the bounty of riches within?
Where something ends, there is a new beginning. Theatre A Go-Go offers the tools to write the chapter of new beginnings as active participants express themselves with confidence, through fun Physical Theatre Acting Workshops. Join us and celebrate the bounty of riches within!
