PERFORMANCE PRACTICE/PRACTICE PERFORMING

at The Kingsland Ward

While site specific and immersive works can have a wide range of aesthetics, they all require a physical rigor. As performer, you are asked to maintain consistent performances while your internal state changes from day-to-day, or even hour-to-hour. This workshop will use a guided long-form improvised structure to simulate the experience of performing a two-hour show. Through this we will explore how to sustain the performance of these types of works. Previously attending a TRP workshop is not required, but this workshop is an excellent chance to apply some of those skills.

In immersive performance our senses are literally immersed in the experience. Sound, touch, smell, taste, and vision can all be used to change or heighten the audience experience. In this workshop, we’ll explore each of the senses and how it feels to receive different kinds of sensory input. Using simple scenarios, we’ll investigate how sensory experience can shift the dynamic in an interaction, the tone of a room, and/or the storytelling of a scene.

This workshop asks; what exactly do we mean by "repeatable"? We will play with the idea of repetition vs. repeatable structures by examining precise choreography and loosely organized improvisational events. We'll look for places where the opposites exist in the extremes and push each form towards the other by asking questions about parameters such as time, space, intention, and outcome. Each participant will design a short scene or event that is repeatable, however we decide to define that.

Physicality/Character & Storytelling

at The Kingsland Ward

In this workshop, we will use improvisational scores to study how modulating our physicality changes the way our form and presence are perceived. We will look at how collecting a vocabulary of specific physical traits and tactics promotes the emergence of a character and explore how transformation in this physical vocabulary throughout the arc of a performance tells a story. Students will leave this workshop with tactics to develop their own work as a maker or collaborator.
