MTS ON THE ROAD: L.A. & Chicago
The Art of Movement at the Service of the Actor
Internationally acclaimed master teacher, Norman Taylor, gives workshops in the Lecoq technique
Beginning with the premise that everything moves, this workshop is an exploration into the inherently physical nature of theater and the dramatic potential of the world around us. It will explore three fundamental components of Jacques Lecoq's approach to artistic training: the analysis of movement, physical storytelling, and the actor-as-creator. By drawing upon the inspiration of music, painting and poetry, the actor will explore styles of storytelling that include spoken word, pantomime blanche, the language of gesture and sound. Working from short stories by Chekhov and Poe, the workshop will culminate in the collective creation of original physical theater pieces.
This workshop offers the actor a unique opportunity to develop a heightened sense of their body in performance with one of the world's greatest teachers of Physical Theater.
Norman Taylor is widely regarded as one of the finest international ambassadors of the pedagogy of Jacques Lecoq. He taught alongside Lecoq at the famed Parisian school for almost 20 years and has taught exclusively with MTS for the last 8. Norman has given Master Classes in over 30 countries at some of the world's most prestigious theater conservatories and is currently on the faculty at the Lassaad school in Belgium.
Participants do not need to have studied Lecoq technique but do need to have a working familiarity with one or more theatrical movement techniques.
