Three day intensive course for Friends Playback Theater's actors.
We were invited to Guangzhou by Friends Playback Theater (同声同戏剧团), to give a three day intensive course focusing on physical theatre, incorporating voice, breath and polyphonic singing (song theatre). We had a very interesting mix of participants, with people flying in from Fujian and North East China. This is our first time teaching in Mainland China, and we hope to do a lot more.
Second Day of Physical Theatre Training
[gallery type="rectangular" ids="898,894,895,896,897"] We worked in a mix of English, Cantonese and Mandarin, and used some text in translation in all three languages. Not to mention the Georgian and Serbian in the polyphonic songs.
Polyphonic Singing on Day Two
We worked towards some short presentations at the end of the three workshops days, based on the Greek myth of Philomela, Procne and Tereus. These incorporated text with physical theatre and techniques we had been working with in the workshops, and even a little bit of song.
Final Day Performances
We're extremely grateful to Friends Playback Theater for inviting us and bringing us together with great people, and for looking after us so well. Watch this space for news of our next collaboration.
