The Cultch - Jim Green House Studio
In partnership with The Cultch, I am excited to announce that Radix Theatre and I are collaborating to present another unique opportunity for local artist to train with this internationally renowned theatre artist and teacher. Following two sold-out workshops last May, Jeremy returns to Vancouver to lead a specialist workshop for actors, directors, choreographers, dancers and students of performance.
[…] This is fundamental work and Jeremy is an excellent teacher […] I was struck by the received wisdom he revealed […] Neil Cadger | Associate Prof. | UBCO
[…] I felt I was in the hands of a master and was very grateful to be exposed to this rigorous training in Vancouver. […] I have never explored character in this way - the focus is truly on the actor, and in group exercises, on the ensemble. Michelle Martin | actress/producer | Vancouver
BEFORE THE WORD: tensions, tics and character traits
This workshop explores frameworks for improvisation to support research, preparation and character development in a devising and rehearsal process. Based on the laboratory practices of Complicite and Théâtre du Soleil, the training helps performers, directors and writers conceive, propose and create new work for stage and screen.
[…] The notion of our work as being research and a constant exploration is liberating. [It] will allow more breadth in my theatrical creations, and a healthier relationship to the work. Conor Wylie | actor/director | Vancouver
ABOUT JEREMY JAMES
Theatre director, actor, dramaturg and teacher, Jeremy's work and research have taken him to more than 20 countries over the past 25 years. His distinctive approach to performance practice and pedagogy has evolved through his work and training with master directors and teachers in Europe, including Ariane Mnouchkine, Philippe Gaulier, Monika Pagneux and the founding members of Complicite.
His sharply crafted ensemble work is described by eminent theatre academic, Patrice Pavis, as ’masterly performed [and] characteristic of the recent evolution of the dramaturgy of the actor’. He is a regular guest director and teacher at theatre companies, drama schools and universities in Australia, Canada, Europe, South America and Asia. In Canada, he has been hosted by Why Not Theatre and the Volcano Conservatory in Toronto, the National Theatre School in Montreal, and Electric Company Theatre and Radix Theatre in Vancouver.
[…] I’ve trained with Jeremy each time he’s come to town, and still feel I have a lot to learn from this work […] One could make it into a life-long practice all of its own. Billy Marchenski | performer | Vancouver
