Course Information 

Epic Minimalism is a method of creating theatre where audiences and performers work together to forge spectacular images using operatic physicality. This practice is infused with elements of mime, clown and vocal foley, making use of only the body and space. This is a physical theatre workshop for actors to explore storytelling through virtuosity, theatricality, imagination, and an irresistible invitation to play. In this three-hour workshop you will leave with strategies and techniques to use in your future work! 

More information on Instructor Rob Feetham

Robert is a Dora-winning physical theatre performer, mime, clown and comedian. In 2022 he performed in the 5-time Dora-winning production of Italian Mime Suicide (Bad New Days/The Theatre Centre). Since 2013, he has toured 16 countries with  the dance theatre company Corpus Dance Projects, Les Moutons. He is also the co-creator of the epic minimalist solo adaptation of Jules Verne’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth (Deanne Taylor New Works Festival/VideoCabaret).

“Through an almost mimetic empathy, our breath syncs with Rob’s, our muscles twitch with his, as he takes us from the beginning of time to the centre of the earth taking us on a truly corporeal journey. Rob is truly a unique mime and storyteller. He conveys so much pathos through a tiny gesture, and so much fear through a discreet vocal sound effect.” -Adam Paolozza, Bad New Days
