Movement for Improvisers
This workshop helps you become more aware of your body and how you use it on stage. It is the third workshop in a 3-workshop weekend with Claudia Pantani (Italy).
About the workshop
In improv, stage movement can be every bit as important as dialogue. Over our 4 hours together, we will work on enhancing physicality in any scene and using the topography of the stage as a narrative element.
This intensive session is designed to help you become more aware of your movement on stage and make informed decisions to discover and portray your character as well as carry out the scene. We will start with a gentle group warm-up, then combine some of the principles of physical theatre, Viewpoints and Laban technique to explore space and movement within ourselves and in relation to the stage and each other. Towards the end of our time together, we will put our recently discovered tools into practice through a jam session/improvised physical piece.
Who it's for
This event is for performers who already have some improvisation training / experience. No previous movement experience required.
