Saturday, March 20 | 9.30am to 12.00pm
Taught by Gemma Soldati | $50 Masterclass (Limited to 8 participants)
A very physical exploration, with lots of games and improvisation, to help us discover what we may have lost or forgotten on our journey to become “good.” This workshop will help participants unleash their muse - find inspiration and feel the flow creatively. Various methods for inspiration and creation will be explored then used as a jumping off point for a scene, story or character.
I'm interested in demystifying the how of art--that there's no wrong way to create. Bring lots of questions to class with you, but be prepared to answer all of them yourself. We will work inwards and outwards, upwards and downwards. This class has only the limits you bring to it. - Gemma Soldati
This workshop is designed for individuals interested in becoming more human - using emotions, the body and the senses to create, grow and play. No prior experience in devising performance is necessary. Participants will work socially distanced, with masks. In the event of tighter public health restrictions this workshop will transfer to virtual presentation through the Zoom platform.
Gemma Soldati is an American performing artist and a teacher for Cirque Du Soleil's John Gilkey's The Idiot Workshop.
