12-Week Physical Theatre Course
Wednesdays, 7pm - 10pm (Spring Term Starts Weds Feb 1st, 2017)
In this course, students work under the direction of The Ume Group’s Artistic Director, Keelie Sheridan and Associate Artistic Director, Yokko, to grasp the fundamentals of the company's 3 primary disciplines: yoga, dramatic acrobatics, and butoh. The variety of technical, analytic, meditative, and creative course components are aimed at creating for each student a deeply embodied understanding of critical concepts for the physical theatre such as energy lock, active stillness, whole body listening, soft landing, neutrality, embodiment, resonance, ensemble play and more!
