Presented by David Glass Ensemble International Learning & KL Shakespeare Players, this is a rare chance to catch David Glass in Penang and Kuala Lumpur teaching one of his most popular workshops on Physical Theatre.

Considered one of the world’s leading theatre teachers, David Glass has worked as a performer, director and teacher in over 70 countries. His creative practice is the centre of this ‘devising’ process which is used by the United Nations, the Chinese Ministry of Education and numerous arts-focused universities and theatre companies around the world.

He is one of the founders and key exponents of the Physical, Devised, Ensemble and Applied Theatre movements influencing artists such as Simon McBurney (Complicite), Mike Alfreds (Shared Experience, National Theatre, The Globe), Amit Lahav (Gecko Theatre), Liam Steele (West Director Company), Katharine Hunter (of the Peter Brook, Julie Taymour, Wooster group) and Tom Morris (Director of Warhorse) to name a few.

He trained with Lecoq, Grotowski, Decroux, Boal, Ailey and Alfreds but through his own work he has developed a unique bridge from the great modern masters of the 20th Century to the Innovators of the late 20th and 21st Century.


All of David Glass’s workshops are rooted in learnable and transferable skills.

Impulse-Journey-Fixed Point
Ways of seeing/ways of thinking
Archetypal Emotions
And more...
