What brings an act together and moves an audience? What separates a string of tricks from an unforgettable performance?
In this mixed apparatus workshop, we will learn different tools in order to create interesting and compelling acts that will make you stand out from the crowd. We will get comfortable with being uncomfortable, moving our bodies in new ways and thinking about ourselves, environment, and apparatus in different ways to create a compelling story and character. With these in mind, we can influence our movement style and connect to audience and ourselves. Throughout the workshop, we will play creative games and each student will perform short sequences with different qualities. Please be prepared with a short list of simple vocabulary that you could repeat in a sequence several times.
