The workshop will be based on a transformation from physical training inspired by Brazilian folk theatrical tradition (Bumba meu Boi and Cavalo Marinho) into creative improvisation. We will look at the relation between the rhythm and the meaning.

Cécile is working as a choreographer and actress/singer with Spitfire Company based in Prague. She is running workshops of physical theater in Prague, France, Poland and Greece. In her work, she is searching for voices which can move the body and bodies which can move the voice. Her latest work is a solo called Narrator, a piece inspired by the book from Atiq Rahimi, The Patience Stone. A crossover performance where body and voice oscillate between fight and fragility.
