Working with Your Environment
Immersive Theater Practices
How can we “see” with more than just our eyes? In this workshop, participants will be lead through a series of exercises and games that explore how to not only exist seamlessly amidst an unusual landscape, but to also reflect and embody the properties of such a space. Techniques for graceful pedestrian movement and actions amidst a changing landscape of both physical structures and mobile audiences will also be explored. Comfortable clothes for movement recommended and knee pads encouraged. Prior theatrical movement experience or dance is absolutely not required.
