Your Own Man/ Mad Notions: Physical Theater Workshop with Luke Murphy
Building on Luke's extensive experience with physical theatre company Punchdrunk the workshop will explore various techniques in physical storytelling, expressing intent and moving seamlessly from natural to abstract forms. All movers with backgrounds in dance, theatre, circus and mime are encouraged. Class will begin with a set of exercises to slowly access each individual to move freely within their full range of motion and find a sensory relationship between intent and texture of movement. Through a series of skill building tasks the workshop will examine the visceral communicative power of the body and build a tool kit for improvisational devising of scenarios and dialogues. Incorporating aspects of contemporary partnering, performance skills, contemporary dance and physical theatre this workshop is open to those with an interest in movement and a good sense of curiosity.
Included in the price of the workshop is a free ticket to his performance at The Performance Project @ University Settlement
on June 26 and June 27th.
