Actor Created Theatre
Impulse. Insight. Action. Reaction. Storytelling.
Theatre Amoeba is an international physical theatre project created in 2002. The Amoeba ambition is to create, educate and exchange through visual, inter-cultural & dynamic performances, and rigorous workshops & classes throughout the planet.
Our collaborations involve diverse people in unpredictable places and our projects incorporate inspired movement, the Lecoq process of devised storytelling, and most importantly creation inspired by a lot of imagination. The focus and artistic approach is energetic and physical, inviting the body and form to poetically participate in a simple and direct way.
Creation. Movement. Insight. Theatre Amoeba.
Amoeba offers a unique opportunity for performers, directors, writers or choreographers of all skill levels, who are interested discovering the underlying laws of theatre and how the body, gesture and the theatrical space express passion.

Events & Workshops
Neutral Mask and the Poetic Space | March 2014
