Join Goat Howl theatre for a 3 part workshop focusing on transposing poetry into physicality using Lecoq pedagogies and techniques.

"When one advances in the work of transposition, one falls back into life, one falls back into the essentiality of life." – Mnouchkine
Transposition is the art of looking to the world outside and translating its poetry through the body. The aim of the workshop is to hone the performer’s ability to devise using their body and imagination as the vehicle for discovery. This workshop explores transposition as a tool for creating pieces of performance from the seeds of movement.
The training in Lecoq’s tradition is aimed at helping students learn how to push their bodies, voices, and imaginations to become skilled at presenting impressions of reality broader than a realist representation.
Transposition comes in handy when a performer or deviser wants to use performance to evoke the grandness and wildness of a roaring ocean on stage or to translate the words of their favourite poet into a piece of performance. In this workshop students will experiment with a number of transposition exercises and explorations, which they can later utilize to craft and shape pieces of performance on their own.

The workshop will be held over three evenings.
Friday September 21st, 28th, and October 5th from 6pm-10pm

The workshop price is $150 for all three sessions.* Our location is The Commons: 587a College St, above an establishment called "Dish".

*Please note there is a subsidy available for a maximum of 3 students who cannot afford the full cost of the workshop. Please email Nora ( for more information.

The workshop will be lead by Oliver Jane, Co-Artistic Director of Goat Howl Theatre
