Immersive Performance Skills: Group Dynamics
w/ Rebekah Morin
Saturday, April 28 – 10:00am - 4:00pm
at The Kingsland Ward
This day-long workshop investigates group dynamics through the medium of movement. In interactive and improvisational performance (and in life) we use our relationship to space and time to lead, follow, and communicate ideas. Using simple pedestrian movement scores and games, the morning session will work with the differences between working in pairs and in small and large groups. In the afternoon, we'll have the opportunity to investigate what happens to our communication over time. As we get to know each other, we often gain understanding and predictive power but lose spontaneity. We’ll explore strategies to stay present and to play the line between building rapport with consistency, and maintaining interest with surprise. This workshop will include a lunch break. A dance or theater background is not required, only a curiosity about our physical intelligence.
