Youth Physical Performance & Character Workshop â€“ Accessing character through movement is half day workshop for young artists and emerging performers, presented by Minola Theatre for the Protege Masterclass series.
The way you hold and move your body has a huge impact on things like mood, emotional state and confidence. It also impacts how those around you perceive you. Exploring movement is a transformative tool for shaping characters and relationships on stage. Why do some people move slowly, and others quickly? Why do some people stomp their feet, and others tiptoe? Why do we emphasise different body parts when we walk? How do things like this affect the playing of a character?
Bianca and Kat will help you identify the ways you naturally move, and how changing some of these choices can help unlock different kinds of characters you didnâ€™t know you had inside you. This is a half day workshop for young artists and emerging performers, presented by Minola Theatre for the Protege Masterclass series.
Young artists will:â
âžœ learn more about their own natural ways of movingâ
âžœ be introduced to the concept of leading centresâ
âžœ be introduced to Laban movement stylesâ
âžœ explore alternative ways of movingâ
âžœ connect character choices to qualities of movementâ
Workshop attendance comes with a complimentary ticket to Minola Theatreâ€™s Begotten, playing at Studio 188 on Saturday 22 May.â *Please note: the Begotten performance contains some language and mature themes and is suitable for ages 15 and up. Workshop is suitable for all ages.â
