This Online Physical Theatre Course explores the fundamentals of Jacques Lecoq’s Techniques and Physical Theatre.

We use Physical Theatre as a tool to expand the possibilities of our bodies and minds. Students are introduced to organic movement exercises, mime, embodiment techniques and improvisation, to discover the expressive possibilities of their body and to develop self awareness.

Course media




Investigate the laws of motion, gravity, balance and off-balance, effort, resistance. Through physical exercises and improvisation, we train the body to use alternative and sustainable ways of moving, stimulating your imagination and physical sensations. This knowledge is fundamental to research and develop your own movement language.


Learn how to use patterns of composition as creative devices for staging. Explore how you can use shape, gesture, tempo, duration, repetition and spatial relationship, to compose and articulate movement in space. When focusing on patterns, we expand the possibilities of articulating structures, by entering forms that are organic, geometric and alive.


We use embodiment techniques to invite students “to enter into the form”. When you embody, you observe and take on the form of what you see around you. To embody means: to see and transpose reality into a poetical form with your body. Through improvisation and movement analysis you will explore how colors move and behave in the space:

  • How much space each color occupies.

  • How do they move in space.

  • Which geometry they take.

  • What is the rhythm of each color.

  • Which dramatic and storytelling territories each color reveals.


In the final part of the Course, you will be invited to work on a final presentation focus on the embodiment of a Painting. You will present your work in front of the class and receive feedback from the Teacher to improve your work.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
