“Corporeal Mime transcends cultural barriers because it is based on physical expression and not on appearance. The actor appears on stage with his body, therefore the actor must learn the art of the body. The corporeal mime/actor is articulated, geometric, precise; his gesture is clean and essential; he doesn’t shout feelings, he doesn’t scream emotions, he portrays it on the body; the drama is born from the struggle of his muscles; his weight lies on the edge of balance; he is present.” – Etienne Decroux
On Screen Manitoba, New Media Manitoba and ACTRA Manitoba are proud to present The Actors Art Of Movement, with Giuseppe Condello adapted for Motion Capture a hands-on workshop that explores body movement techniques that can be translated for work in motion capture.
Corporeal Mime holds its own grammar, which can be taught and performed by actors, clowns, mimes, dancers, film animators, and/or teachers of the performing arts. The technique consists of four main principals that aim to work the body and mind: body segmentation, counterweights, dynamo rhythms, and mobile statuary. The workshop will integrate various techniques based on Etienne Decroux’s Corporeal Mime, Rudolf Laban’s 8 Efforts of Action, Constantine Stanislavsky’s Method Acting, and Hatha Yoga principles of Breath Control, Stretching of the Anatomy and Postures. The workshop will conclude with a summary of these techniques and how they can be applied to Motion Capture work for filmmakers, actors, dancers, and technicians. Participants will have the opportunity to work with the Rokoko Smartsuit system, available as part of On Screen Manitoba’s Mobile Media Lab.
