Description


We are excited to bring you a workshop combining physicality and character by Calum Robshaw

Calum Robshaw is a talented actor and director. He is working with Glass Half Full Theatre on their next production 'Our Big Love Story'. In the play Calum uses a lot of physical movement to bring the characters and physicality to life in funny, heartwarming and sometimes grotesque ways. He teaches his workshops at drama schools and provides workshops throughout London.

  • About Calum

Having trained with one of the world’s leading practitioners in physical comedy: Antonio Fava. Calum teaches workshops, specialising in Commedia del Arte Focusing on a varied age range, his workshops focus on the discipline of the character’s steps and physicality’s.

These workshops are extremely beneficial for integrating a heightened use of the actors body to explore depth of a character through improvisation and devising.

Other disciplines include:

-Bouffon Clown, Contemporary Text, Archetypes, Tension States, Laban in heightened text and Lessac Vocal ''release.

  • The Workshop

The Commedia workshops focus primarily on the discipline of a character and the depth an Actor can go in order to effectively bring it to life. The classes consist of learning the performative styles and movements of the four archetypes of Commedia. Once the characters are integrated into the Actor’s body we then move onto comedic improvisation with masks and how to devise a short Commedia play (Cannovacci). I offer a 5 day Intensive workshop in Commedia, where we will learn the characters physicality’s and culminate with a small “in- houseshowing of a devised play.

The benefits of Commedia del Arte are that the students will have an extensive knowledge of one of the earliest forms of theatre alongside acquiring a tool belt” of physical performative skills.

The archetypes of Commedia form the basis of many modern acting styles and characters. This gives students an understanding of the roots of comedic acting and strengthens an actor’s ability to build a comedic character with a newly found sense of playfulness.

Calum is offering a two hour workshop at a discounted price to raise money for @OurBigLoveStory. A two hour workshop normally costs £55.
