Join writer, director and actor Eilidh Loan for a workshop all about movement in theatre.
Part of the Tron Theatre’s BUILD programme (Sep-Dec 2023)
Wed 25 October 2023, 10.30am – 5.30pm
Movement in theatre is always exciting: from fight scenes to dance sequences and creative scene transitions. But what other roles can movement play when developing a piece of work?
Actor, writer and director Eilidh Loan will lead a movement based workshop giving you an insight into her process when creating characters and approaching text. Using simple and easy to access movement tools built from Rudolf Laban’s principles and putting them into action, this workshop will explore the effects an actor’s physical choices has on their voice, emotional stakes and other members of the company.
Through this workshop, you will also discover how movement practices can translate into writing text and the detail that it creates when bringing your piece to life. Regardless of your movement experience, Eilidh is keen to create a supportive environment and prove that approaching work with a movement mind is not as scary or complicated as it may seem.
