MOVEMENT THEATER STUDIO NYC – Lecoq technique for the American Actor

MOVEMENT THEATER STUDIO NYC
Lecoq technique for the American Actor    
                         
 

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PHYSICALLY CURIOUS ACTORS TO EXPLORE THE CORE PRINCIPLES OF JACQUES LECOQ’S PEDAGOGY FOR THE FIRST TIME.

It is an over-arching introduction in a playful, intensive setting and will cover such areas as Neutral Mask, Le Jeu, Gestural Languages, Lecoq’s 20 Movements, Identification work and ensemble created theater.

The workshop is led by MTS founder and Co-Director Richard Crawford who studied under Lecoq in Paris and who has been teaching this approach for 15 years in New York and around the world. Richard strives to create an atmosphere of meaningful abandon and physical precision. He is gifted in teaching to each student’s particular needs and will help the training actor identify the areas of future physical theater training he thinks they will benefit from.

This workshop is intended to be a jumping off point for those actors who have identified themselves as physically based performers and who want to know how to nurture this impulse. To this end, MTS will provide 20% off EACH of the next two workshops the participants may decide to take.
