Description

CHARACTER COMEDY with AMY GWILLIAM

DATE: Sunday March 4th

TIME: 10am-5pm

LOCATION: Old Vic Workrooms, 16 Drummond Road, Bermondsey, SE16 2JX

HOW WILL IT WORK?

Over the course of this workshop, Ecole Philippe Gaulier trained and international buffoon Amy Gwilliam will share some tricks of her trade as an experimental performance artist and character comedian.

Participants will be gently teased into seeking their alter egos and eliciting their demons, and invited to inhabit more expansive, ludicrous outfits which reflect something very real about the world we live in (and the people we think we might be).

Whilst Amy invites the actor to be fantastically liberated, she has a very safe and meticulous way of doing so, and will share skills and exercises which enable us to develop the seeds of new characters - and articulate what they might be saying, and why.

PREPARATION

There is no specific preparation to this course.

COST: £45



ABOUT AMY

Amy is a theatre-maker, performance artist and facilitator. Following a degree in English at Cambridge University, she trained for two years with Philippe Gaulier in Paris, after which she established award-winning touring company Teatro Entre Escombros in Spain (“sublime, ridiculous”). Her most recent work has focused on solo performance, including MUMMY (performer, writer) and - in Portugal - De Monster (dramaturg, director). She writes, performs and directs for comedy and cabaret events, curates the satirical revue ExperTeaze and is currently writing her new bouffon show The Profit.

Amy has trained and worked with theatre companies from all over the world, including Complicite, Spymonkey and SITI Company. She has a diploma in Therapeutic Skills and is a core facilitator for Theatre for a Change (recent projects in Malawi and DRC) and Clowns Without Borders (recent projects in Greece and Turkey).

As a facilitator/coach, she is known for her playful and rigorous practice which is centred less on methods and more on madness. She frees the performer in a very special way.
