ACTING THE UNSAYABLE: A workshop for actors, directors and writers.
In our world, we write, gesture, speak in familiar ways and modes so that we are quickly understood and can achieve whatever goal we’ve set ourselves. We rarely reflect on these familiar modes – that, perhaps, they have have locked us into a habitual and mediocre way of relating to our world. We sense that there’s so much more within and between us, but are hardly ever able to reach that depth or breadth.
This workshop is for writers, directors, actors who would like to take a line of flight into other possibilities of performance: not simply re-present to us ready-made ideas of ourselves, the other and our cosmos, but enter a process of creation that allows the outside world to challenge & galvanize us and our work – & our work to cast its new expanse back into the world.
Understanding how familiar modes order the world and predetermine our performance
The joy of journeys: speed, intensity and intervals of the body, relationship with the other, space & time
Playing without an end: the body and the other as process, materiality, possibilities
