The Talking Body Shaping Space
Sunday, February 18 at 11:00AM – 12:30PM Facilitated by Amber Borotsik
in the Westbury Theatre
Pay What you Will
In this fun and physical class we will explore movement improvisation as a tool to open and extend our ability to communicate through the body. Working in groups and in partners we will also play with ways to shape and understand space – refining our ability to use space and proximity as a creation tool.
This class is suitable for dancers, actors and all lovers of movement. Because the floor can be slippery we will work in bare feet.
About Performance Lab:
This weekly, drop-in, pay-what-you-will, performance training and professional practice session is moving to the heart of Old Strathcona to soak up some mid-winter heat at the Chinook Series. In partnership with The Citadel Theatre and Foote Theatre School, Azimuth is now offering a performance training laboratory for artists who are interested in a long-term, exploratory, physical practice to enhance, supplement, and complement their performative and creative capacities.
A blend of methodologies, these sessions are for artists who are committed to technique, discipline, curiosity, and play. They are set at a professional training level; however the only prerequisite for the class is a commitment to the rigours of the work. For actors, directors, creators, stage managers, playwrights, dancers, performance artists, teachers, technicians, visiting artists, emerging artists, as-yet-undefined artists, administrators, engaged and active community members.
This workshop is conducted in ASL and English and is fully accessible.
