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.
