Performance Lab – Chinook Series

Westbury Theatre – ATB Financial Arts Barns, 10330 84 Ave NW
Edmonton, Alberta T6E 2G9 Canada

Pay What you Will

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.

A mortician falls in love with a man as she prepares his corpse for burial. She has three days until the funeral...but three days just isn't enough. A punk rock musical inspired by true events, from the creators of Edgar Allan and The Legend of White Woman Creek.

"The gleeful crassness of the whole proceeding is hard to resist. The musical staging is endlessly inventive, Katie Hartman’s voice is a remarkable instrument" - Minnesota Playlist

"Hartman's volcanic performance makes this uncomfortable material compelling. Explodes with all the anarchistic passion you could ask for... " - Orlando Weekly

"It's almost too weird for Fringe" - American Underground
