Performers need access to their creative sources to augment life experiences, amplify authenticity, expand performance range and enrich artistic growth.
Join us to explore and experiment together, deepening the performing experience with these essential skills. In all the body disciplines ‘call and response’ is one of the most important aspects of the performer’s toolkit. As the body relaxes, listening improves and authentic personal responses are revealed. That response encompasses space, shape, and time.
The workshop will be divided into 2 sections:
1/ the internal, personal response to our impulses (solo work) and 2/ responding to the outer world of each other and the space (ensemble).
The first half of each day features a somatic practice preparing bodies for movement; using Kinetics and MELT, etc. We will then enter the world of personal movement exploration through Authentic Movement and Mary Overlie's SSTEMS (space, shape, time, emotion, story). The second half of each class will features the 9 Viewpoints by Anne Bogart, playing with specific ways to respond to the influence of others and the space through locomotion, shape, text or song.
“The viewpoints training asks us to stay awake inside of a structure" D. Mather.
