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.

Isabella Rossellini is “the best professor you could ever imagine: witty, lovely to watch.” —New York Magazine
Award-winning actress and filmmaker Isabella Rossellini takes inspiration from the natural world in her new theatrical lecture, addressing the latest scientific discoveries about animal minds, intelligence, and emotions. With Pan, her trained dog, Rossellini transforms herself into Aristotle, Descartes, B. F. Skinner, and Charles Darwin to deliver a vivid monologue about the brilliance of the animal kingdom.
Rosellini brings Link Link Circus to the Bard Fisher Center’s Sosnoff Theater this Saturday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices start at $25 and are available at http://fishercenter.bard.edu or by calling the box office at (845) 758-7900.

Dancer/comedienne DEBORAH LOHSE, described as “Carol Burnett in the body of a classical ballerina,” will appear as the character TruDee, her alter ego, which she describes as “a manifestation of optimism, fearlessness, unconditional love and play.” TruDee, an elusive genre straddler, has shared her dance stories in performances at Joe’s Pub, American Dance Festival, Chicago Contemporary Circus Festival, the beloved West Village drag bars Boots & Saddle and Stonewall In, and more. A favorite with Soaking WET audiences, TruDee returns in her one-woman show as Juliet, faced with keeping the show going when her Romeo fails to show up. Audience members – bring your tiaras. You may end up on stage!
