Sourcing Within –
towards an embodied performer and practice through physical and vocal integration
Join us for a masterclass of self-discovery where you will find refreshing new ways in:
i) Physical and vocal embodiment:
Be introduced to an active search of physical and vocal capacities as a performer. Through free play and exercises that enhance awareness and intuition, learn to follow your organic responses and contact with others that will then be developed into your creative work.
ii) An organic approach to performing:
Learn to build your creative materials as well as bridge creative impulses and intuitions to the audience. Performance will then become a means of connecting thoughts, intentions, associations, imageries and human relations.
Please come comfortably dressed. You are also encouraged to bring along a piece of creative work of not more than 3 minutes. It can be with a text, object(s), and/or movements.
Highly recommended for theatre and dance practitioners, as well as graduating theatre and dance students and teachers.
