More Information

Come expand your writing potential through Butoh dance! This workshops creates the relationship of an ensemble to respond with movement and sound, and expands that collaboration as a springboard for solo text or group theatrical text. The first portion is based on Butoh Dance techniques and provides a holistic relationship with the body, leading to breaking down boundaries in the theatrical space. It will interweave writing prompts, moments of movement and exchange sequences. The second portion focuses on developing the writing materials that emerged into concrete dramaturgical proposals. Utilizing the imagination of a map on the floor and the metaphors of travel and migration, we will create a synergy where the participants will interact in a non-traditional way to create the unexpected.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with one hour of lunch break.

This workshop is donation-based. Recommended donation: $ 30.
