LCTC/ Lorraine Chapman the Company Improvisation Workshop: Embodiment & Presence
Presented by Boston University Dance
September 22, 2012
LCTC/ lorraine chapman the company will lead a workshop that explores improvisational techniques and tools for body and voice, emotion and image. The workshop will include exercises designed by influential Polish theater director Jerzy Grotowski to help develop the performer's "internal key to an external door." LCTC's Boston Center for the Arts Dance Residency 2011 implemented a selection of Grotowski's physical warm-ups for actors to create Safe Space which the Boston Globe described as "vividly memorable" and "powerfully visceral." Participants will be encouraged to enter a state of being that is not dancing or acting, but somewhere in between. Both dancers and actors, professional and pre-professional are encouraged to participate.
