Voloz Collective’s Cinematic Devising Workshop

This dynamic workshop introduces students to the fundamentals of collaborative devising. Students will learn how to create effective unscripted work in an ensemble environment, inspiring their audience’s imagination with nothing more than their bodies, voices and found objects.

Using Lecoq-inspired techniques employed in their own practice, students will work together to create imaginative narratives through guided improvisation. This empowers students to find a common creative language and build surprising theatre by relying on their dramaturgical instincts, rather than intellectual processes.

Students will be guided in exercises focusing on the use of their bodies and found objects, allowing them to transform themselves – for example – from the protagonist to an ant, to an areoplane in the blink of a eye. This near-cinematic style is at the heart of our theatrical practice.

 

Suitable for: KS3, KS4, KS5

Subjects: Drama

Students will learn to engage with the world around them to inform their physical choices, taking inspiration from elements, colours, materials, animals, music and text. They encourage students to take risks, trust their intuition, and allow their imaginations to run wild, without any pressure to justify or intellectualise their choices. This is a non-judgmental and experimental environment, in which students can test their wildest ideas.

This demanding workshop provides students with an introductory understanding of Jacques Lecoq’s pedagogy.

Their team of practitioners will show students how to make connections between theory and practice at every stage of the process. At the end of this intensive session, students will understand how to follow their physical impulses and dramaturgical intuition to create arresting and unique performances.

Often, these sessions are followed by a short Q&A on training at Lecoq and creating a company-based theatre.

Voloz Collective’s Performance Analysis and Evaluation Workshop

A unique opportunity to see devised physical theatre from an award-winning international, Lecoq-trained theatre company.

Students will have the opportunity to ask questions about the devising process, Lecoq’s methodology, how to create and develop a theatre company, and any other questions that ignite their imagination.

Their performance is suitable for the performance evaluation questions in both GCSE and A-Level assessments. The Q&A offers a chance for students to gain a rare insight into their process and, if paired with a workshop, helps them to understand how those exercises can grow into a full performance.

THE SHOW: THE MAN WHO THOUGHT HE KNEW TOO MUCH

Wes Anderson meets Hitchcock meets Spaghetti Western in this fast-paced whodunnit. Winner of the Les Enfants Terribles and Greenwich Theatre Award 2020, this show is an intercontinental, inter-genre, cinematic caper of accusations, accidents, and accents. This story follows Roger Clement, a Frenchman in 1960’s New York. His days have always followed a highly predictable, yet not unpleasant, routine – until a minor delay saves him from an explosion, igniting a powder-keg of
twists and turns as Roger chases his would-be assassins around the world to discover the truth. Raucously funny and endlessly inventive, this Lecoq-trained theatre company delights and stuns with live music and virtuosic acrobatics.

Suitable for: KS2, KS3, KS4, KS5, Higher

Subjects: Drama, English
