Action Theater Improvisation: Minding the Physical

with Carolyn Shakti Sadeh and Cassie Tunick
May 1, 2015 - 5:00pm to May 3, 2015 - 3:00pm

In improvisation and in life, embodied experience opens doors into mindfulness, playfulness, and the present moment. This workshop in Action Theater improvisation offers practices that have their roots in sensation -  where the body draws the mind into full presence of feeling. 

Inviting physicality to lead, we enter fresh wilds of the imagination and infuse awareness with greater possibility. Incorporating an expressive vocabulary of movement, vocalization and speech, participants explore solo and ensemble scores, simplicity in action, and artful spontaneous composition.  Exercises are spare, playful, and challenging. Participants learn how to connect to a partner while remaining grounded in their own physical experience, to dance inside of language, and to reconnect to their own musicality.  We'll examine numerous ways to meet the moment supported by a rigorous and intelligent curiosity in an encouraging atmosphere. This weekend workshop is appropriate for any level, and no previous theater / movement training is required.
