Presence and Action: a contemporary text-based investigation of the relationship between being and doing
LED BY: alan Dilworth
LOCATION: THE THEATRE CENTRE
DATES: JULY 27-28| 9am - 1pm, 2pm-6pm
The class will explore the tension between action based approaches to scene work and embodied text-based practices that privilege moment to moment presence, figurative heft, and text-derived ensemble building. the walkabout (collective text ambulation), the labyrinth (sensory image mapping), and core-sampling (plumbing the poetics of complex text and dropping into stage directions).
What is the relationship between action and presence, being and doing?
