Lewis Barfoot
















A series of WOMEN ONLY Day Workshops for actors, dancers, singers and the curious.


Looking at the physical, energetic, vocal, vibrational and psychological world of each archetype we will discover how they can be expressed in body and voice. Whilst exploring what we can learn from them; not only as a palette of colour for our work as artists/actors/singers/performers but also how they can inform and empower us in our lives personally. The Archetypes covered will include: The Wise Woman, Warrior, Queen, Lover, Crone, Sage, The Trickster, The Golden Child, The Huntress, The Maiden as well as looking at specific Goddess archetypes.

We will work as an ensemble, in small groups, pairs and solo. Working with movement, text, dance and song in a combination of core training as a company and  specific solo and duet expressive work  to culitvate your artistic practise and explorations.
