The masterclass with John Britton is an introduction, or refresher, to the principles of physical theatre. It will also allow you to dip your toes into Self-with-Others, the practice at the heart of Johns work over the past twenty years.
The masterclass offers a chance to understand
Improvisations techniques and tools
Cultivate presence and discipline in the body
Psychophysical understanding of movement
Communicating intentions through the body
Johns approach to training individuals within the ensemble (Self-with-Others) is the foundation on which DUENDEs work is built. This is a psychophysical approach that encourages bringing the mind and body into every action. It is based on a set of clear, interconnected principles, the most important being the need for performers to find deep pleasure in their work. If you are not enjoying your work, you are not doing it properly.
