Summary of workshop
The actor training work of Jerzy Grotowski placed the emphasis on the
body as the route towards the role, and indeed by extension towards self
knowledge. Since Covid-19, much actor training has been forced to migrate online to platforms such as Zoom. This migration poses particular challenges for body-based training such as Grotowski’s, which previously placed heavy reliance on shared space, shared acoustics and closeness of contact between performer and performer, between performer and director, and between performer and spectator. In this Zoom workshop, Jake will explore as part of his PhD research some experimental ways in which actors in training can physically explore Grotowski’s theatrical and paratheatrical processes in an online environment.
