After a busy summer season when we are travelling from festival to festival, a period of relative calm starts, and the rehearsal period begins!
All members of the company gather weekly to create and rehearse. This is an important period during which new performances are being developed. All exercises are beyond the basic theatrical skills and the members have a toolbox of skills to use, from dance to music, from mime to puppetry and more.
When we rehearse it is more like a process of creating rather than training.
Close-Act is known for her extraordinary costumes and huge installations but the way it is presented remains the key to a successful performance.
To transform into a character or bring a puppet to life is something really magical. It takes time to become a professional and actually it is a never-ending learning process. We’ve been working together as a group for many years now, which makes the creative process a pleasure. It is easy to explain if you dream the same dreams.
Like a perfect theatre machine capable of doing the incredible!
