Toronto Physical Performance Workshops in November

Toronto clown Adam Lazarus and guest instructors Susanna Hood and Meagan O’Shea will present three weeks of workshops focusing on physical performance techniques.

These 5 day courses will challenge students to take risks, hone their improvisational skills and push through performance inhibitions to find the pleasure of being present, space, rhythm, fixed point, complicity, focus, flop and play. Students will have daily work on building spatial and body awareness

Each week will focus on a different subject:

Week 1: The Physical Body and Le Jeu Monday Nov. 5 – Friday Nov. 9

Week 2: Introduction to Bouffon Monday Nov. 12 – Friday Nov. 16

Week 3: Building a Performance
Monday Nov. 19 – Friday Nov. 23

All classes will take place at Pia Bauman’s School of Ballet and Creative Movement,
6 Noble Street, Toronto. Classes will be held from 10 am- 2pm.

On Saturday Nov. 24 & Sunday Nov. 25 there will be class showings at Theatre Passe Muraille that are Pay What You Can, with money going back to the students.
