Everything begins with movement.Explore the concepts of contemporary mime in a playful workshop with DeRonde/Deroo, the company behind the award-winning After The Echo (The Old Market, 27th-29th May).Mime is not about pretending, its about being. Unrelated to pantomime, this physical theatre practice is about analysing and understanding body language and applying it in a dramatic context; learning how to use your body and the space around it to tell a story. This workshop will focus on playing and improvising using the body as a starting point rather than a text, character or attribute. We will explore a wide spectrum of movement from small, detailed and precise acting to large and grotesque gestures.The workshop is open to all ages and abilities.DeRonde/Deroo consists of Dutch mimers Nick Deroo and Tom de Ronde. They studied at the Academy of Theatre & Dance in Amsterdam. DeRonde/Deroo were invited to Brighton Fringe after winning the Amsterdam Fringe Award in 2021.
