Using methods taught by the late French theatre luminary Jacques Lecoq to ignite the creation process, this workshop offers tools and techniques for playmaking. The exploration is primarily physical in its approach and identifies the actor’s natural instincts for play. There is a focus on freedom through improvisation and on finding ways to access a natural pleasure to play and invent.  The workshop culminates with short pieces of theatre created by the participants -pieces that could be used as starting points for scenes or fuller-length creations.
