Meat & Bone Movement Workshop

Mon 27 Aug 2018 6:00pm

The Theatre Royal is proud to present Cockfight by The Farm performing at the Theatre Royal 30 and 31 August.

A powerful and dangerous physical performance, Cockfight is woven around the lives of two men from different generations, trapped in an office. Existing side by side, sharing space, resources, time and responsibility.

Cockfight is performed by Gavin Webber and Joshua Thomson.

The Meat & Bone Movement Workshop will be conducted by co-creator, performer and set designer, Joshua Thomson.


Meat & Bone:

This contemporary technique class teaches the dancer how to gain maximum power in movement with minimal effort through the use of momentum. Through the exhaustive nature of the class there is a discovery of the body’s natural movement and a desire to arrive somewhere through the path of least resistance. Based on a systematic and relentless series of movements that travel down the room, you are learning through doing and bypassing the time and luxury of questioning. This class is a workout where your own body becomes the greatest teacher and where your physical individuality is not discarded.
