Immersive Performance Skills: Communicating and Connecting with Audience
W/ Tara o'con

Saturday, October 28 – 11:00am - 2:00pm
at The Kingsland Ward

In this workshop we will explore techniques that allow us to embody material with clarity and consistency, while maintaining a sense of curiosity and improvisation that is responsive to the present moment and our audience, whether it is one person or many.  This balancing act is an essential approach to allowing our most honest selves to both be seen and to inspire genuine connection with our audience. A dance or theater background is not required but a willingness to move and improvise is essential. 


Immersive Performance Skills: Creating a Cinematic Movement Practice
W/ Tara o'con

Sunday, October 29 – 11:00am - 2:00pm
at The Kingsland Ward

This workshop focuses on tools that deepen our ability to remain present and aware of the nuances of our experience and the environment around us while in performance. How can we move in a way that fully embodies our physical and cognitive experience and engages our audience in clear dynamic visual storytelling? Participants will practice making various physical and compositional choices, examining how these choices capture the viewer’s eye, and impact how movement is perceived. A dance or theater background is not required but a willingness to move and improvise is essential.
