SIFTING

Drawing from his 8 years of experience working with Ultima Vez and based on over 20 years of performance research into dance, theatre, and music, Rob's workshop will propose physically demanding tasks that deal with elements of physical, psychological, and emotional risk. These tasks will inherently challenge our various limitations, inviting us to go beyond them.

Rob says:

The workshop is designed to unlock the flow of living impulses within the body. By doing so, we allow our attention, intention and awareness to guide our work and flow more naturally.

Utilizing spatial awareness and sensitivity, we will work with qualities of speed, lightness, heaviness, softness and pliability, stillness and gravity.

The primary and practical focus throughout the workshop will be on the delicate meeting point between precision and organicity, awareness of space and one’s ability to react to its constituent elements, and ones ability to improvise within a structure.

The overriding emphasis is on developing within oneself what can be called the ‘total act’; a state wherein the performer works toward creating his or her own ‘movement as a theatrical act’ rather than as a technique.

This workshop is open to all actors and dancers.
