Brisbane: PlayMoves – Winter Workshop for Performance

July 6 @ 10:00 am - July 7 @ 4:00 pm

Facilitated by Anna Yen

This workshop is for performers, actors, singers, circus performers, clowns, musicians, dancers, performance devisors, directors and drama teachers.

 

The program includes:

  • games to invite our playfulness and the pleasure to be on stage
  • performance exercises to explore what it means “to be present” and in “complicity” with other performers
  • movement sequences from the Feldenkrais Method designed to heighten the perception of one’s self-use, rediscover an organic sense of movement with more ease and less tension, and discover options.
  • rhythm as a foundation for creative play
  • a beautiful writing exercise that begins from the physical

 

PlayMoves is facilitated by theatre-maker, performer and Feldenkrais Method practitioner Anna Yen.  Our quest is to awaken the performer, inviting the attentive and joyful performing physical presence that marries risk with vulnerability and self-confidence with authenticity.
