Enjoy the Best of BE FESTIVAL show, and stick around afterwards to join its performers Marc Oosterhoff and Tom Cassani for two extra-special workshops in the Drama Studio's rehearsal rooms. Suitable for all – students, performers and members of the public.
2-3:45pm – Workshop 1: Authentic deception, methods for foregrounding deception in performance making with Tom Cassani
Investigate the spectre of deception on stage. Tom will demonstrate and carry out exercises on how cheating can be a useful tool in stage creation. You will acquire an introduction to the different ways in which deception can be used in the search for a presence and authenticity in the performance.
4-5:45pm – Workshop 2: Open form, sweat and fun times with Marc Oosterhoff
This workshop will approach movement through expressive dancing. It will focus on body work and body awareness, covering the bones, joints, muscles and mind. First by following some clear and precise exercises targeting specific parts of the body, then by taking those principles into dancing. You will work through “open forms” - exercises with clearly defined goals but in which the steps will be free and up to each participant. This workshop will be open to everyone as it is built in a way that can challenge every participant no matter their experience or background.
This event is part of Enable US Festival.
