In this one day workshop we will work deeply to connect to our bodies, voices, and intuition through cross cultural pedagogies relating to theatre, ritual, and other interdisciplinary performative approaches. We will explore through exercises, devising, interior explorations, and explore tools for generating original material. This workshop is open to all experience levels, and diverse artistic disciplines.
