2017 SPRING MASTERCLASS #3: JACOB ZIMMER
Director, dramaturge and creator Jacob Zimmer combines Anne Bogart's Viewpoints, Laban Efforts, Jonathan Burrows composition strategies and his own diverse performance background in collaboration and creation.
In our one day masterclass, we will work on building awareness, presence, attention and curiosity with a big dose of pleasure. Great for anyone who works in devised and/or collaborative performance and folks who want to add some play and surprise to their work.
Jacob's uses personalized approaches to expand our range in generating gestures and making physical choices. Well work through personal exploration, group improvisation and creating physical material while staying open, available and curious.
No experience necessary as long as you're willing to move.
June 4th, 11AM to 5PM
Ages 14 and up
Only ten spots for full participants!
