You will enhance your physical, emotional, imaginative and cognitive playfulness in order to be well equipped for the demanding journey of articulating, shaping and presenting your artistic visions. You will develop a better understanding of "the physical body you have, the subtle body you are, and the collective body we all have in common". The exploration of the dynamic relationships between these different bodies will provoke your physical and emotional imagination, creative intuition and personal playfulness, initiating awareness of what we call the Poetic Body. Awareness of this body lies at the very centre of LISPA's DTAP Course pedagogy, since accessing it is essential for the creation of new performance languages.
All of the languages you will explore are very physical, and demand from you the ability to negotiate highly transposed levels of play.
The aim of this Devised Theatre and Performance and Advanced Devising Practice at Rose Bruford College is to increase your physical, poetical and intellectual understanding of the underlying structures within very different theatrical territories. This exploration will not only allow you to develop a better insight into what kind of theatre and performance you feel really passionate about, but also the ability to go beyond already existing forms in order to create your own work. Regular movement, improvisation and devising sessions will form the core of each Intensive, with excursions and theoretical reflections on practitioners in the field deepening the artistic journey.
