#var:page_name# cover

As performers, the way we move our bodies onstage is vital when telling a story. The theatre is a physical space, and our bodies often speak louder than words. In this workshop we will explore the body in the space. We will focus on creating character using the body as the first impulse, physicalizing a character’s hidden drives and examining levels of tension in the body.
This workshop is aimed at performers who want to feel more comfortable moving their bodies on stage.

This workshop will be facilitated by James Riordan, a performer and theatre maker who has trained in physical theatre at LISPA (London) and the APT (Berlin), and by Cathy Walsh, choreographer and performer who holds an MA in Contemporary Dance from the University of Limerick and a post-graduate in Ensemble Performance Practice from Queen’s University Belfast.
