The Actor & The Natural World

3 September 2017 to 9 September 2017
Sauve, France
Physical theatre workshop in the south of France

Dell’Arte International master teachers Joan Schirle and Laura Muñoz invite you to meet in the beautiful town of Sauve in southern France’s Occitanie region to train, research and create dynamic theater. The focus for this intensive week will be the study and embodiment of the elements (earth, water, fire, air, and ether) to arrive at a free, authentic, and visceral physical power that can play, fully alive, in the space. We’ll look to the 5 Elements as well as to the Senses for our inspiration, with taste, touch and smells playing an equal role with our eyes and ears. We’ll play and stimulate our proprioceptive and kinesthetic senses, and our sense of life.

For 5 days we will meet for 6 hours of instruction, plus evening rehearsal time with a final rehearsal for the public.

Renowned chef Emily Schons will prepare for us seasonal, organic and local fare for lunch and dinner, including vegetarian dishes. She is a wine expert and known for her expertise in the cuisine of Le Gard, part of the ancient province of Languedoc-Roussillon where medieval Sauve grew up over a thousand years ago. Meet Emily in a video as she prepares a local specialty:
