Beginning January 29th we present
THE SPACE BETWEEN: LISTENING & RELATIONSHIP IN ENSEMBLE PERFORMANCE
A workshop by Hannah Chodos
Sundays 10:30am – 1pm
January 29 – March 26
$100-150 for the entire course
limited to 12 participants
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
This workshop will offer a series of exercises designed to cultivate listening in the context of ensemble performance. How can we train an active-receptive mode as performers so that we are centered and alive, and at the same time, open and receiving? How can we disrupt the logic-brain, and approach spoken text through our bodies? We will experiment with rhythm, harmony, and physical relationship as entryways to impulse, and to freedom in the body, voice, and imagination.
