DanceDrama Labs Workshop Series Presents:
Deepening Your Performance:
A Workshop for Actors, Dancers, Singers and Performers
December 9-11, 2016
(Fri from 6:30-9:30pm and Sat and Sun from 1-4pm)
at Culture Hub (47 Great Jones St, New York, NY 10012)
FACULTY: ANABELLA LENZU and ANNA HAYMAN.
“Deepening Your Performance” is dedicated to using the connection between the body, voice, and self to deepen performance practice. It is open to actors who desire to explore movement and physicality; dancers who want to investigate voice, text, and movement; and performers of all backgrounds who want to deepen their performance practice.
Participants will experience and study Anabella Lenzu / DanceDrama repertory. This workshop explores the principle: Motion Creates Emotion /Emotion Creates Motion, and emphasizes the use of imagination, interpretation and body coordination and control. The emphasis is on the journey rather than the destination, on understanding the impulses generated by movements and gestures.
The workshop will incorporate vocal production to understand how the voice and body are integrated into a healthy, expressive whole. Exercises in text, partnering, and theatre games will free uninhibited theatrical expression. Whether a seasoned or early-career performer, this workshop will leave actors and dancers with new confidence and inspiration in their performance practice. The cost of the workshop is $150 per person.
