SPACE THE FINAL FRONTIER (Year 3 & 4)

Do you know your personal space? Are you aware of your physicality and how it imprints on the space around you? Did you know body language amounts to almost 70% of al communication?

Yes, it’s all about space! Inner space, outer space, public and private, physical and intellectual, and we shall explore them all. Using the method of Jacques Lecoq a French actor, mime and acting instructor we will embark on an extraordinary journey. Employing lots of challenging and fun games such as space jump, mask work, and more we will create and manipulate reality. And in the process, we learn how to stand up to tall, how to project positivity, exhibit leadership and how to beam with confidence.

This workshop encourages students to be in tune and working as an ensemble and the importance of saying ‘yes’ in play.
Workshop Includes:
• Character development
• Creation of dramatic space
• The language of space
• Observation
• The seven levels of tension
• Body language and our interpretation of it
We look at how space affects us as beings and how it dictates the course of our history, how it moves us.

This workshop will reveal what is not instantly discernible - another dimension. It is an abstract dimension contained deep inside us.

We will begin by identifying common experiences. The goal is to reveal how things function the way they are meant to. This will allow us to explore all imaginable “dis-functions” that create laughter.

The workshop will embolden students to think about the world around them and how elements, materials, shapes, textures, sounds, and colours can help us create a more vivid and truthful life experience.

By the end of the day we will have created a fresh fun performance art.

We will learn:
• The power of silence
• The power of movement
• The power of expression
• The power of the word.

Outcomes:
• Understanding how space effects and impacts our world
• Team work
• Ability to read and express oneself with body language
• Self-awareness and self-esteem (how to deter bullies)
• Appreciation of play

LET YOUR BODY GUIDE YOU, the body knows things about which the mind is ignorant. Language is essential, however, it is also a constraint. Free yourself from this and explore the world through the work of Jacques Lecoq.
