Physical theatre is a genre of theatrical performance that encompasses storytelling and abstract art primarily through physical movement. Although several performance theatre disciplines are often described as "physical theatre", the genre's characteristic aspect is a reliance on the performers' physical motion rather than, or combined with, text to convey storytelling. Performers can communicate through various body gestures (including using the body to portray emotions). Inter-disciplinary origins, spanning music, mime, clown, dance, visual art, as well as theatre. Challenging the traditional, proscenium arch, and the traditional performer/audience relationship (also known as "breaking the fourth wall"). These sessions are ideal for all but in particular performers looking to expand on their movement vocabulary and develop performance art for Altiora.
