Amy Rose's Utility Room
Holly Stoppit Workshops are proud to be hosting inspirational performance alchemist Amy Rose to run a series of four Utility Room sessions for the playful people of Bristol.
Amy Rose's Utility Room is to performing artists what a life drawing class is to visual artists. With a focus on developing and maintaining a relevant core practice, it explores presence and play whilst expanding the performer's tool kit and performance-making range through movement and vocal improvisations, tasks, exercises and games.
This is a class where actors, dancers, live artists, puppeteers and other performance practitioners can develop their craft in a friendly yet professional atmosphere. The approach is influenced by the notions of play, pleasure and complicity, from the physical theatre teachings of Jacques Lecoq and Philippe Gaulier, as well as the improvisational performance practices of Al Wunder, Andrew Morrish, Action Theatre and Brenda Waites Flummery Room.
Dates: June 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th 2019
Venue: The Island Dance Studio, Silver Street, Bristol
Price: £65 / £50 (concessions) for all four sessions
Tickets must be purchased before the course commences, first-come, first-served.
Amy is a facilitator and director with specialisms in clown, physical theatre, puppetry/visual theatre, political theatre, outdoor arts and post-dramatic performance. She has 25 years experience as a performer, director and facilitator. She lectures part-time in Theatre Studies at UCW.

Responses from participants:
"I find it so hard to stay creative, especially working by myself a lot, so have found the sessions amazingly fun and inspiring, and actually they really reminded me why I do what I do."
"One of the best classes I have taken for a very long time. The lessons were planned, themed and grew as the sessions unfolded. The atmosphere was supportive and reassuring. A great class with a superb teacher who enabled everyone to learn and grow at their own pace. What a delight!"
"A great sense of freedom aligned to creative purpose is hard to teach. It can be learned but not taught. Amy lives the tenets of what she shares with others. That comes through in a class and it is refreshing and honest. The unlearning of movement is equally as important as the learning of movement and performance. Where else could you stick a piece of tape on your nose and learn how to get so much out of that experience? Brilliant!"
