2019-18 Peeping Tom
Workshop description

Jos Baker will be teaching a 5 full days, 6.5 hours each day. A combination of his workshops Physicology and Creative Tools.
Physicology works with a combination of analysis and experimentation to develop a deeper understanding of the physical, psychological and evolutionary principals that effect human movement. These principals are then expanded through both fixed material and improvisation, building to richly detailed, technical and highly physically dance phrases. As the classes develop the emphasis turns to performativity and musicality while keeping a fun and high energy spirit of exploration.
Creative tools is an exploration of ways of making material for stage performance. Exploring physical extremes and characterisation; this workshop will look at ways of creating scene ideas using theatrical and
physical tools, and then on how to develop and refine those ideas. How does a dancer approach character, how does a character dance? We explore methods of generating material that play with the personality, image, and the strengths and weakness of the individual in the attempt to find unique and specialised material. Much of this work is inspired by Jos’ experience working with Peeping Tom.
