15_Bring your body and your dreams!
with Pauline Calmé
Saturday, 5 May
Venue 2 - Ghost Light Theatre
TICKET PRICE: $30
"I want to use my body more", "I've never tried this kind of character", "I have no idea what I would like to do."
We have so many desires and we never make them real for so many reasons. We don't have the space or the time to try, we think we’re not good enough… sometimes we don't even know why.
There is a difference between what we think we are allowed to do on stage and what we actually can do. The goal is to identify what each actor uses to block themselves and break these boundaries to reveal true potential. In this workshop, we will use physical and creative exercises from I.S.A.A.C techniques to make your body and mind ready to work.
