Resonant Bodies: Movement Workshop for Performers, Nov 16-17

In this 4-module, weekend workshop with physical theatre artist and teacher Jordan Rosin, participants will utilize principles from a variety of physical theatre traditions to cultivate an awareness, availability, and responsiveness that will allow them to speak, move, and act with resonance in the dynamic space of the stage. Drawing on Butoh Dance, yoga, clown, acrobatics, viewpoints, contact improv, as well as somatic modalities like Alexander Technique, Jordan will help students expand their dynamic, expressive capacity while cultivating the awareness and receptivity necessary to make healthy and sustainable choices in rehearsal and performance.
