“Kinetic Improvisation”, an improv class with Jayda Fogel
April 2, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm€50
About this event
As improvisers, sometimes we forget to be comfortable letting our bodies do the talking, and how to best use our physicality to establish characters, relationships, and scenes. We’ll play with taking control of spaces using only our bodies, creating and recognizing characters and emotions through body language, and how to build upon physical offers. Drawing from dance and contact improv techniques, we’ll play games and explore the full range of our body’s movements to ease into physical scene work.
Expect an active class full of play as we go through fundamental movement exercises that may make you sweat, even as they help you connect to your body and all of the ways that it can move and help you express yourself.
This workshop is open to anyone, regardless of skill level or physical fitness, looking to reconnect with physical and movement-forward improvisation.
Skills: Character creation, physical movement, body and spacial awareness, staging, mime and object work, silent improv, dance (flow, improvisation, techniques), physical groupwork.
6-hour improvisation workshop (in 3-hour halves, before and after lunch)
Anaglifos Art Factory, 17 Carrer d’En Mònec, 08003 Barcelona (see map)
€50 cash or card on the door (reserve your space by emailing email@example.com)
