Movement Directing Workshop

The workshop is a highly practical and intensive residential lab, where students can expect being involved in the training full day.

Working closely with performers from different corners of the world, you’ll learn how to teach them physical language.

Students will be introduced to

Meyerhold's

Biomechanics

Physical Action

Our students are dancers, movers, choreographers, physical theatre actors, contemporary circus performers, musical theatre performers, performance artists from all over the world who wish to improve or diversify their skills and knowledge, as well as practitioners from an allied sport/practice who need a deeper understanding of movement in contemporary performance.

The program includes practice of Tai Chi. The Chinese practice of Tai Chi includes elements of balancing, equipoise and flexibility. Performers practicing these exercises see good results in balance, inner and outer harmony, coordination and persistence.

At this program:

Z   Bring the living presence into your performances
