Forthcoming Masterclasses

 Thibault Delferiere

INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP | THE BODY IN SPACE AND TIME 

Saturday 20 May | 10am - 4.30pm | New Perspectives 

We are delighted to welcome the Belgian disabled performance artist Thibault Delferiere to the UK for this rare opportunity to share his unique working practice with East Midlands' artists and theatre makers.

Over the past 20 years Thibault has presented over sixty performances and collaborations worldwide. Through controlled physicality and masterful command of environment, he creates performances of a raw intensity where the body holds a central place, drawing from its relationship to time, space, objects and audience.

In this practical and inclusive Masterclass Actors, Devisers, Theatre Makers & Performance Artists will learn techniques of how to use the body, including managing the relationship between the performer and a single object. This is an opportunity to share the practices of one of Europe's most distinctive performers and take inspiration from an approach to creating visceral theatre from the ground up.

Age: 18+ | Max no of participants: 20

 

Pay-What You Decide - donations will support Emerging Perspectives - an annual programme of artist development opportunities for East Midlands artists and theatre makers.

 ABOUT OUR MASTERCLASS SERIES 

"It broadened my view of the nature of the audience/performer identity"
 - Coney masterclass participant


Each year we curate a series of inspiring masterclass sessions with major figures from the theatre and arts industry as part of our wider Artist Development programme. These targeted sessions provide opportunities for East Midlands theatre-makers to work in a detailed, practical way, accessing a range of ground - breaking artists and companies. We create an informal, inclusive setting where participants at all career stages can benefit from new skills, insights and make new contacts.
 
We are able to offer the masterclass series to emerging artists at a subsidised rate thanks to donations from generous individuals and participants. The Masterclass series continues through 2017 - check this space for future details...
