A QUOTE UNQUOTE AND NIGHTWOOD THEATRE WORKSHOP
Friday 22 – Sunday 24th February 2019
Toronto, ON (Ernest Balmer Studio, Distillery District
15 Case Goods Lane)
Friday 5-7pm/Saturday & Sunday 10am-4pm
Fusing Music and Physical Theatre - An exciting exploration into a new style of storytelling. This three-day workshop will be an intensive, rigorous exploration of how the performer in an empty space can use the body to create characters, spaces, emotions, poetry, atmospheres, and ultimately tell stories without words. Based on a Lecoq-style method we then translate physical theatre into a new realm enhanced and elevated through song. Using the concepts of harmony, dissonance, tone, resonance, and the composition of many voices working with or against each other, stories are built from sound to stage.
This workshop is open to theatre practitioners who want to bust out of their comfort zones and explore new ways of storytelling. For this this master class we encourage those who identify themselves as singers to apply. There are a few spots available to non singers, but music will be a main component of the weekend. Open to artists who have an interest in Lecoq-based physical theatre, the devising method, vocal experimentation or who simply have a desire to push themselves beyond what they know.
The workshop will be facilitated by Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava.
Workshop cost: $300 +HST
