What does this workshop cover?
Open to all who would perform this workshop offers an immersion beneath the surface of the material world. Discover objects beyond their functionality, listen and realize that everything is alive. Suddenly, life becomes much more mysterious, playful and interesting... These sessions use techniques of physical and visual theatre, Butoh, dance and mime to explore how to creatively relate to material, objects and space, how to listen to them, explore them as partners, and instigators of characters and physical states, how to transform them and allow them to transform us.
