Construction Tools: Physical Theater with Annie Loui of Counter-Balance Theater (Los Angeles)
April 11th-12th, 1-5:30PM
FIRST TIME OFFERED!
This studio workshop will involve basic movement training in both conditioning exercises, technical weight and energy sharing (Loui Movement Technique) and the exploration of construction tools for the creation of physical theatre in the style of Counter-Balance Theater. The workshop will culminate in a short group physical theatre construction based on a piece of literature, probably the classic Greek epic, The Odyssey.

This is a studio workshop, and participants should already have a grounding in physical theatre or dance. The weekend will be divided into practical training exercises creating some common vocabulary, and construction around a script that is already broken down into imagery and movement components. At the end of the workshop we will talk about the basics of script construction and the “fleshing out” process, so that participants can leave the workshop with a sense of how Counter-Balance construction can be used for their own work. www.counter-balancetheater.com/
