Space, Time & Sense-Ability
Weekend Workshop — Improvisation in Performance
w/ Sten Rudstrøm
16-18 July 2021
When you improvise you are engaged with the space and passage of time in each unfolding moment. In this workshop, you will use our sense-ability to track & engage the moving and/or voicing body, and experience the act of performing /being. You will work with embodied presence and explore the agility of the imagination through exercises that are simple, playful, and challenging. Becoming more aware of your body experience gets you access to more material. The constellation of sensations, feeling states/moods and ideas that may arise are all part of this process.
This workshop is based in Action Theater™, a physical dance/theater improvisation training which expands individual expressive range, builds ensemble awareness, and offers you a clear, structured form in which to play with abandon. By integrating the kinesthetic intelligence of dance with the emotive nature of acting, Action Theater™ helps you access imaginative impulses. The training builds vocal, verbal, and physical performance skills, hones awareness and increases expressive range.
This workshop is open to performers, dancers, actors, musicians with prior performance and/or improvisation experience.
