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

Their Lecoq-trained teaching artists will guide students in a series of improvisational exercises that introduce Lecoq’s methodology, including: the recreation of everyday life, identification with the natural world, character construction, fixed points, mime, movement analysis, and the chorus.

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.

About Voloz Collective.

Matilda The Musical Logo

VOLOZ COLLECTIVE is an award-winning international physical theatre company that reinvents and recharges physical comedy – exploiting the capacities of the human body and blurring the lines between the theatrical and cinematic.

Hailing from three different countries, the team of four was brought together by two years of study at L’École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq.

Voloz Collective has performed in France, England, and the United States, in diverse venues ranging from an organic farm in rural Vermont to London’s Pleasance Theatre. Voloz has been granted residencies at La Factorie in Normandy, France and at The Sable Project in Vermont, USA. Voloz Collective’s original theatrical short film, America, premiered off-broadway as part of Ars Nova’s ANT FEST. In February of 2022, Voloz toured The Man Who Thought He Knew Too Much to 17 different venues throughout England and Scotland, followed by an Off West end run at Omnibus Theatre. They received multiple five star reviews and an Off-West End Award nomination. Voloz will be performing as part of the Pleasance Futures season at the Edinburgh Fringe this August, and will also be performing the French premiere of The Man Who in January in Paris at Point Du Jour.
