PLAY (physics, liveness, action, you)
led by WHITNEY V HUNTER
A physical performance training approach which offers the participant an understanding of the body in action. ASKS "how does one hone or become aware of his/her own technical and performance potential?" EXPLORES the body in relation to space and time in an effort to deepen the experience of the moment. EMPLOYS kinesiology, improvisation, and composition as experiential and instructional modalities. PROPOSES the appropriation of social play as a generative method and/or an organic form of performative action. IS a practice in honesty, discovery, and experimentation.
