'The Expressive Body' workshop held this weekend

Posted: Thursday, January 21, 2010

This weekend, Perseverance Theatre will host "the Expressive Body: A Physical Approach to Performance" workshop for performers, storytellers and artists.

Local actor and director Roblin Gray-Davis will team up with three colleagues from the London International School for the Performing Arts to lead Juneau residents in exploring their imagination through movement, theater exercises and improvisation. Learn and play with physical acting techniques, dynamic movement, character development and dramatic structure.

Through improvisation, movement analysis and theater exercises, participants will study how timing, levels of play and imaginative state affect and change intention. Learn to gain a state of playful engagement through relaxation, breath and gaze.

The workshop is designed for all types of performers and artists, from actors, and storytellers to dancers to writers and visual artists, and is designed to encourage increased sensitivity and greater expression in the arts.

The workshop runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 23 and Sunday, Jan. 24 at Perseverance Theatre. Registration is $75 for the full two-day workshop; scholarships are available. Bring clothes you can move in and water.
