Week Long Master Class in Lecoq Theatre-Making, Pants on Fire

London Artform: theatre   Contact: Peter Bramley




Award winning theatre company, Pants on Fire presents a week long master class for professional and semi-professional performers, directors, theatre makers and students.

Pants on Fire’s Adventures in Space offers a unique opportunity to explore essential theatre-making and performance techniques based on the teachings of theatre master Jacques Lecoq. 

Diving into a world of imagination and play, the focus of this intensive training is both solo and ensemble-based creation through improvisation and devised work. The starting point is the human body and its relationship to the space around it. Participants will develop a stronger sense of themselves, which will be used to propel them towards their personal physical limits. Through energetic play, a range of physical approaches to performance will be explored. This work will be combined with an investigation into different uses of space and how a story can be told clearly through an imaginative use of scale and mimed imagery.

At the end of this course participants will have:

  • A stronger sense of their own body and presence
  • Learned various approaches to creating solo and ensemble work
  • Gained valuable technical skills in stagecraft
  • The ability to create rich, imaginative worlds and share vivid, colourful stories in an empty space 

Led by Peter Bramley, Artistic Director of Pants on Fire and Head of Movement at Rose Bruford College.
