Wednesdays (6:00pm – 8:00pm) & Sundays (1:00pm – 2:00pm)
Cost: $200 +GST
Instructor: Aaron Coates
Description: Would you like to make your performances more physically dynamic? Are you interested in playing characters far from your own type? In this workshop, students will use the Neutral Mask to discover greater freedom in performance, to learn what real presence is all about, and to use your body to its full potential as a storytelling tool. The work will begin with a discovery of the habits, unconscious mannerisms, and accidental movements that we often don’t recognize as we perform. After discovering a “neutral state”, we will then examine how you create characters with clear and specific qualities. We will examine extreme movement and minute movement, making this class suitable for performance on stage or screen.
