Feats of Daring
AKA, "How the human body supports weight--its own or someone else's."  AKA, "Things to do on stage, other than standing around."  

Four sessions, 10am-1pm, Saturdays, Oct 22-Nov 12

We begin with individual explorations of the basic kinesiology of balance and then move toward partner work in giving and receiving weight and contact improvisation.  Utilizing the Swiss acrobatics maxim, "I put my center under the thing that I do not want to die," we study simple techniques for lifting, carrying, and catching human bodies.  We then progress to more spectacular balance and ensemble techniques.  Great for slapstick, clown, ensemble work, and developing advanced grappling choreography.  This class builds (literally!) "from the ground up," so beginners are welcome, though persons with recent back or knee injuries are advised to sit this one out.

Located in The Gilbert C. Eastman Studio Theatre which is located in the Elstad Annex building at Gallaudet University.  Closest Metro is NY Ave red line (about 7 blocks away--walk east on Florida Ave).  Also there is parking outside the building.  Please see this map:
