A difficult one to define, as our physical theatre workshops can be very varied. The form that we teach is very energetic, so be warned, you’ll sweat!
We can work with props, site specific dance suited around an interesting space, incorporate text or acting and using your body in less expected ways! Physical Theatre is a good introduction to dance for boys as it can be less girly than they might expect dance to be, and they get to throw themselves around!
One fantastic project we did in a school in Liverpool involved physical theatre and dancing in different locations throughout the school. For the performance the audience followed the dancers around as they danced in the school office, science room, playground, IT suite and finished with a finale in the dining room with the tables laid out for lunch! It was an amazing week long project hugely enjoyed by the school and us at Zest.
