About the Peeping Tom Workshop
Immerse yourself in Peeping Tom’s work and the particular techniques used by their diverse performers. The company’s universe finds itself on the borderline between theatre and contemporary dance, and questions the logic of time, space and atmosphere, while focusing on the dark side of the individual and the community.
At the basis of the work is a diverse group of artists – actors, dancers, singers – from all over the world. They each work with their own artistic backgrounds and individual processes, creating a fascinating artistic mosaic on stage.
Throughout this workshop you will have the opportunity to dive into varying modes of research and guided improvisation. Lauren will draw on theatrical tasks derived from her personal experience performing in ‘Triptych: The missing door, The lost room and The hidden floor’. She will share and give insight into her own individual process as a performer, taking you on a journey into the exploration of emotional states through movement, character research and voice.
