Butterfly and Bell

I'm busy



A few years ago, Jacques Lecoq’s wonderful text ‘Le Corps Poetique’ (which reflects on teaching physical theatre) made me see the body afresh as a superbly expressive tool. I made some drawings about flirtation as a result. Here, the first couple are mutually captivated; the second turn inwards and away; the third show off their mutual balancing act; and the final trio are locked in self-conscious hesitation.
