What A Body Can Do!
Intro to physical training for performers
May 28, June 4, 11, 18th, 2021
This unique four-day workshop focuses on your primary instrument, the body, and immerses it in a movement-based approach to physical performance and creating theatre.
Starting from the body and the space, we’ll explore many areas of physical training, including mask, silent play, text, character work and physical comedy.
The classes are divided into games, movement technique, improvisations and more.
What A Body Can Do explores the powerful link between movement, emotion and expression.
This is a unique opportunity for artists of all disciplines and skill levels interested in discovering underlying principles of theatre and how the body, gesture and the theatrical space can be utilized in making original work.
This workshop is led by award-winning performer, director and creator Adam Paolozza. Adam trained at the Lecoq school in Paris and studied mask with the Sartori family in Italy. With his company Bad New Days he’s developed a uniquely physical approach to creating theatre in Canada, including such works as SPent, The Double, Flashing Lights, Paolozzapedia and The Cave.
