Weds, Feb 4th from 2:30-5pm
at the New Museum
AUDIENCE AS PARTNER
Class will begin with a group warm up followed by learning a simple phrase. This phrase will be our movement material to experiment with. We will exercise different ways of performing this material which will be to an “audience” and to a “theoretical audience”. Meaning, to people (participants in the class) and to things (abstract forms). We will focus on how these various shifts in the performer’s perspectives can enhance or transform the material, and bring something out in the performer that was not there prior. By opening up these channels, we will examine how we are relating to an audience and strengthen our performance vocabulary.
