Presented by Minola Theatre
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 didn’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.
Workshop attendance comes with a complimentary ticket to Minola Theatre’s Begotten, playing at Studio 188 on May 22nd. Begotten is a one-woman show, in which actor-playwright Bianca Butler Reynolds performs five unique characters. Begotten showcases Bianca’s character diversity, and the opportunities for a single performer to explore multiple embodiments. Young artists will gain insight into the physical choices in Begotten, and the ways in which physicality informs and is informed by character.
