This course will focus on how to develop transformation in physicality as a theatrical tool. We will look at how to identify a quality and all that it entails and what is our journey to travel to the opposite. We will examine the slow changes and where theatricality appears and disappears through these changes. And throughout the process, while movement is the means, how it feels is the research, identifying how it can take us where we are going towards.
