Physical Theatre is a genre of performance which makes use of the body (as opposed to the spoken word) as the primary means of performance and communication with an audience. This miniseries experience is for anyone interested in exploring the expressive possibility of their body, telling a story through movement, or developing their ability to embody a character. Skills developed through the study of physical theatre can enhance and enrich the talent and range of all performers. This class uses accessible and engaging methods to introduce students to a variety of physical exercises, improvisation, and movement practices and styles to develop an awareness of physicality and space. Students will learn how to use their body to communicate meaning, stories and relationships in new and exciting ways. Students will work collaboratively and experience group dynamic demands in a creative practice. This course will focus on the physical and creative skills required for performance. No experience required! Full participation is expected and necessary for the learning process.
