This workshop will allow participants to work with esteemed choreographer Crystal Pite and Eric Beauchesne in an investigation of the relationship between text and movement, story and the body, as well as an exploration of a physical process that can deliver narrative elements and emotion. Participants will work at their own pace, creating unique choreography and structured improvisations while exploring kinetic relationships both within their own bodies and to the space around them. The work is explorative and non-performative: its focus is on the play between analysis and instinct, and the use of improvisation both as a tool and an experience.

This workshop is for early-to-mid career artists that make their own movement-based work. It is for choreographers, directors, playwrights, and puppeteers: any creators that are making work for the stage. No dance experience is necessary. This workshop welcomes individuals and small (5 people max) collectives.

Cost of workshop includes single accommodation and meal plan for the duration of the program. GST will be added to the program fee where applicable.

Registration deadline: February 25, 2015.
