What do we have with us when the mind goes blank? What do we have with us when the voice stutters? What do we have with us from the day we are born?
*Say it on cue*:
Body with Mind is a workshop aimed at harnessing the power of this unshakeable companion in our journey and see what our bodies are suggesting to us, what our bodies are suggesting to our co-improviser, and what our comfortable fall-back options are. I aim to collide my 8 years of experience in Playback Theatre and the excitement that I have for improv to see how much learning and fun we can have. The workshop will contain techniques to turn the gaze inward, turn the exploration inward, and jump, yell and shout in new ways. Imma throws some light theory on body and performance in the mix too. Let's listen to our bodies? Yes And, take them on a spin along with our minds.
