About the workshop & practitioner

Nola's workshop will be an insight into how to work without text, paying special attention to the rhythm of movement and how to move to express ideas with maximum clarity.

All parts of the body (and mind) will come into play. Language will be discouraged, but not necessarily sounds. Through observation, improvisation and articulation of movement, students will have the chance to discover aspects of comic performance that are universal.

Nola Rae MBE is one of Europe’s most celebrated theatre clowns. She trained at the Royal Ballet School (the building LAMDA now occupies) and with Marcel Marceau, before launching a career as a performer, teacher and director that has taken her to 69 countries to date.

Who's it for?

This workshop is aimed at enthusiastic professional or amateur performers aged 16+, who want to know more about what makes visual theatre tick and who are not afraid to move. Students should wear loose fitting clothes and flexible shoes and bring one juggling ball.
