Devising with Text and Movement
Participants in this workshop will learn key elements of our
processes of creating physical and text-based ensemble work.
In addition to large and small group exercises, participants
will be given performance assignments: themes, stories,
characters, a piece of text or music to work with as an ensemble.
This workshop emphasizes generating original material,
physicalizing characters and theatrical ideas, structuring group
improvisations into finished pieces and the role music and
rhythm play in theatrical creation. Participants will work on
taking material developed through improvisation and turning it
into pieces that are precise, full, exuberant, and moving.
