We had the pleasure of Fine Line performing their moving physical piece, Walk Me, to our Drama students. This show really crystallised for our students the pedagogy of Lecoq in its creative ensemble narrative through physicality and transporting the body into powerful dramatic meaning. We will definitely be using them again.
