PERFORMING ARTS INTERNATIONAL
workshops, trainings and performances
working with body, soul and spirit
a new part-time training in the performing arts
focussing on the arts of speech and drama
YEAR ONE: FOUNDATIONS
March 2018 – January 2019
Peredur Centre for the Arts, East Grinstead RH19 4NF UK
supporting performing arts faculty
inspired by working with body, soul and spirit
The first year comprises five full-time weeks: they introduce the breadth and dimensions of the training, giving experiences and insights both in to speech and drama in general and also into the different fields, such as how to use one’s own voice and speech, one’s body and movement to give life to stories, poetry, drama - in fact to any text. They focus on how to discover and work consciously with our own voice and body and how to build understanding of the artistic and living nature of sounds, syllables, words, sentences, lines and verses.
The same weeks are also open to any participants who wish to explore individual aspects of the performer’s life and work.
Regular tutorials given by Sarah Kane with each individual Foundations participant aim to anchor what has been introduced during the full-time weeks in this first year. The tutorials are to be organised individually by participants between the training modules at a time or times of their choosing. The aim of the tutorials is to provide continuity and regularity in the work and individual practice, so that participants can develop good working habits and therefore continue to both broaden and deepen their understanding, skills and artistry between the individual modules.
Gregers Brinch, musician, composer and singer, will be contributing with sound & listening explorations and Sigune Brinch, eurythmist, will be contributing movement sessions to the training in this first year.
At the end of the first year, Performing Arts International plans to offer participants the opportunity to continue into the second year of the part-time training.
