Ex:Creative Risk-Taking Balance. Timing. Trust. Explosion Power. This workshops invites actors and dancers to embrace skills of the old world circus and explode them into their 21st century trained bodies. Through ensemble games and other skill-building exercises, we redefine bravery for ourselves and develop a tangible awareness of trust because these are the most essential skills of the stage. Through basic floor tumbling, handstands, and acrobatic partner balancing, we engage with what it means to jump into presence and action with specificity. Workshops culminate with a set of spirited instant performances. + Floor mats, padded flooring, or grimmie pads. + Easily adapted for youth and High School ages.
Ex: Outside Eye Look at the crafts of performance and creation as if it were clay, and we'd have the ability to reshape as we go along. This workshop helps students critically examine at the actor's and dancer's art without passion so that we can discern what's valuable and what isn't when it comes to a particular work of performance. Similarly, by working in a community of peers, we acquire skills needed for this performance through showings and discussion. We invite a scientific mode of experimentation, gathering data and embracing the unknown. This is an inquiry-based approach to theatre. + Best suited to large studios or black box theaters.
