ACTING WITH ACTION: CORPOREAL IMPROVISATIONAL THEATRE:
After a physical and creative warm-up, participants will be guided through a series of simple exercises to help identify how to keep the energy of a scene alive – namely how to use their bodies as a source of creativity and connect with their stage partners through the senses. The workshop is suited for all levels of experience, from novice to veteran performers. At the end of the workshop, everybody will know how to get a perfect start to any scene, whether improvised or scripted. And for those who never knew what to do with their arms on stage, some of these exercises will be pure gold...
