Join us for a theater workshop that explores movement, presence and connection with practitioners Ann Boyd and Kurt Brocker. Ann and Kurt worked in the Chicago dance and theatre communities for twenty-five years. Kurt trained at DePaul University’s Theatre School and worked as an actor throughout the city. Ann worked as a choreographer and director and full-time faculty coordinating the Movement for Actors and Theatre Devising at Columbia College Chicago.
Kurt and Ann share a love of constraint-based ensemble practices including Movement to Music and the Viewpoints. Movement to Music is not “dancing” but rather invites us to freely and with abandon respond to our impulses. The Viewpoints is a compositional vocabulary that gives us a structure that liberates us to express authentic movement as well as experience presence and connection. We will also share theatrical warmups, freewriting, and an overall emphasis on building our curiosity and awareness.
As facilitators we are committed to creating generous and supportive space for creative expression. We look forward to sharing these playful, spontaneous and bonding practices with you!
