    Kimberley Twiner


    A short burst of classes to support, reinvigorate and reconnect performers with physical play and movement. It is designed to adhere with current Covid-19 restrictions and will be limited to 9 participants per class.


    This workshop is grounded in two aspects: Le Jeu and Movement Analysis.

    With Le Jeu (pleasure/fun) you can expect playful theatre games, ball games, stick games, chorus work and cardio work. The Movement Analysis sees us breaking down some essential movements, practicing mechanics and connecting with technique. Everything is designed to be non-contact and promote physical distance between students.


    All levels of experience are welcome and wanted, sessions will include a warm up and a warm down.

  • About

    Started by Kimberley Twiner in 2019.

    Melbourne Physical Theatre School is a place for high quality training taught by local, national and international maestros.


    Kimberley is a Melbourne based performer, director and teacher.

    She is a Fusetti, Bolton and Gaulier trained performer. In 2019 she studied THE PEDAGOGIC JOURNEY An Advanced Training in Movement Theatre under the tutelage of Giovanni Fusetti. This was a study into teaching the Lecoq lineage of training.


    She is obsessed with many aspects of theatre training and believes that technical training and play based training hold hands with each other. Play without technique doesn't work, and technique without play doesn't work. Kimberley seeks to train people in a non-personal way, because theatre trangresses the personal, a performer must go beyond their own private experience.


    Kimberley's expertise is found in devised physical comedy, clown, bouffon and character comedy. Her practice is explored through her award winning queer comedy troupe PO PO MO CO, award winning directing for The Travelling Sisters, devising contemporary clown with Fish & Twiner's Bait Shop and her bouffon troupe Physical and Political.
