Welcome to the blog about the book 'Moving Life' concerning Monika Pagneux and her work. Author of the book is Loes Hegger.
On this blog you will find information about the creative process of the book.
Monika Pagneux is a renowned theatre teacher whose work is inspiring a new generation of theatre makers. Loes Hegger: I am a director, theatre teacher and one of those theatre makers who are touched by Pagneux’ work. It is an amazing, inspiring and useful way of approaching art. I want to share this source of creativity with the readers.
I am inspired by cookery books. In theatre, like in cooking, you learn by experiencing, trying, tasting and trusting your own body. The book will speak about ingredients, recipes, and the pleasure of tasting new things.
Throughout her work, in each exercise, Monika uses universal rules of moving and playing. Like when you are cooking, you will need specific ingredients for this or that recipe. You also need basic equipment for cooking: good oil, vinaigrette, salt, herbs, knifes, pans, ladles etc. These universal rules are needed and used in each recipe.
