Resonant Bodies

In this workshop with physical theatre artist and teacher Jordan Rosin, participants will utilize principles from a variety of physical theatre traditions (Butoh Dance in particular) to cultivate an awareness, availability, and responsiveness that will allow them to move and act with intention and impact both onstage and off. Drawing on forms such as yoga, martial arts, acrobatics, clown, contact improvisation, as well as somatic modalities like Alexander Technique and Bartenieff Fundamentals, Jordan will help students tap into universal resonance through engagement with both their dynamic and receptive aspects, expanding both their expressive capacity and the sensitivity necessary to truly be moved by the ‘other’
Ideal for performers, but open to all people, 18 and over, including those with no prior dance/performance experience. Continue reading Resonant Bodies
