Relax your mind and open yourself to the curiosity of the unknown as we unlock the door to a world of creative possibilities. The seeds of creativity are already in you; in this workshop, participants will learn to relax the mind and bring your attention to your body, allowing a little window of creative play.
Beginning with a simple and gentle yoga practice, we will explore different energies of the body — the muscle and bone of you, the waters that churn in the belly, your breath, your capacity to expand your vision. From here, all kinds of characters, situations, worlds can emerge. The key is often to simply get out of our own way.
All are welcome to this interactive session rooted in the practice of ensemble-based physical theatre designed to help participants nurture their creativity and deepen their capacity for play and connection.
