Intensive Workshop With Pau and Yorgos Karamalegos | Physical Lab, London
WORKING WITH PAU
"I propose a space for a creative process to take place, to connect with oneself, explore sensitivity and expression, without pretension or judgment, and where everything is possible." — Pau Aran Gimeno
Each body has its own unique movement language. The body, our work tool, must be powerful and receptive at all times. With these premises, and through play, we will discover technique exercises, composition, improvisation, body narrative and authentic expression. Opening the space for dialogue with oneself and others. The process will build skills for autonomous thought, capable of adapting to a creative process and developing a greater awareness of our limits and how to overcome them whilst fine tuning the quality of movement.
WORKING WITH YORGOS
A search for authenticity and presence in acting. The point of entry is the body.
This Lab will focus on stripping down acting habits, rooted in social and cultural conditioning.
We will share grounding techniques as tools for presence and deconditioning.
The aim is to explore a performing state where the body, mind (conscious and subconscious), emotion and instinct, work together moment to moment.
Through discussion and one to one sessions, we encourage actors to discover their own technique and personal journey through the teaching practice.
