YT Wong and Alex Lydon are in residence at NOHspace Friday, July 15-Sunday, July 17. While in San Francisco, they will be offering an introductory corporeal mime workshop and two evening performances.
Friday, July 15 - The Body is Your Face: Introduction to Corporeal Mime Workshop, 2-6 p.m. Workshop Fee: $40 per participant.
Corporeal Mime technique treats the body as the live performer's primary means of expression. This workshop introduces and explores the technique and how you can use it to defamiliarize the body, find articulation possibilities, especially in the trunk, and to compose with an awareness of those possibilities. The workshop is open to artists and performers of all disciplines.
Workshop Requirements: Participants must be at least 18 years of age. Some movement experience is helpful (e.g. NOH, Suzuki, dance, clown, mime, martial art, etc.) but not necessary. Participants must be prepared to be on their feet and working for an extended period. Participants will be required to sign a medical/injury waiver.
Workshop Attire: Regular yoga or workout gear for ease of moment. Regular socks or tabi to enable feet to slide on the floor. No jewelry.
Workshop participants qualify for two-for-one tickets to the Saturday and Sunday evening performances. Participants will be given the codeword to order tickets at the Friday workshop.
