Movement and the Fluid Imagination
No RSVP needed.
A rigorous and creative investigation to enhance the ability to link imagination with movement, this workshop is designed primarily for actors and dancers. Using elements of Allan Wayne Work, students will learn physical forms that will increase strength, flexibility, and stamina, while simultaneously making the body more sensitive and supple. We will then explore how to apply these principles consciously to individual and group improvisation, so that we move with purpose as well as emotional transparency. Open to students of any degree of ability. Please wear comfortable clothing to move in.
