A 3 day workshop led by the world renowned and award winning theatre company Complicité.

In this masterclass Complicité will lead participants through a detailed exploration of some of the core skills a Lecoq training aims to instil in the performer.

There will be a focus on Jacques Lecoq's physical training - using techniques that help you drive the development of character and story and unlock a huge pallet of possibilities.

The workshop will be largely physical, and taught through games, group work, music and improvisation.

Complicité is an international touring theatre company, based in London. Founded in 1983 by Annabel Arden, Fiona Gordon, Marcello Magni and Simon McBurney, the Company is now led by Artistic Director McBurney OBE and Producer Judith Dimant MBE.

The Company has played in more than 40 countries across the world, won more than 50 awards and been described as

"...the most influential and consistently interesting theatre company working in Britain." The Times

Complicité began life as a collective and this spirit of collective enquiry, of collaborative curiosity, has driven the work throughout its history.

The Company is famous for making its work through extensive periods of research and development which brings together performers, designers, writers, artists and specialists from diverse fields to create the works – a process now known simply as ‘devising’. These many diverse Associates - as they’re known – have developed and evolved a shared creative language, which provides an anchor for the explorative work that the Company has become famous for and which foregrounds every piece they bring to the stage. This focus on a collaborative devising process has meant that Complicite has also become famous for a distinctive, visually rich stage language, which layers physically beautiful performances and tightly choreographed ensemble work with innovative lighting, sound and video design. The main body of work has been of devised theatre pieces and adaptations and revivals of classic texts but the Company has also created opera and worked in other media, with radio productions of Mnemonic and John Berger’s To The Wedding, a collaboration with

Major Productions include: The Encounter, A Pacifist’s Guide to the War on Cancer, Beware of Pity, The Kid Stays in the Picture, A Dog's Heart, Endgame, Shun-kin, A Disappearing Number, Measure for Measure, The Elephant Vanishes, The Noise of Time, Mnemonic and The Street of Crocodiles.
