The Urban Performance Project presents Ten weeks of Zero Hour Mutinies
This term Para Active will invite tutors from various disciplines including Capoeira (Afro-Brazillian martial arts, acrobatics and music), mask (concentrating on Commedia Dell'Arte - the improvised Italian form featuring stock characters) , Suzuki (physical performer training influenced by Tadashi Suzuki), Butoh (movement form that is improvised and not dictated by the outside but appears from the interaction of the inner and outer world) African rhythms, songs, drumming and dance, text work (working on the embodied performer), and Corporeal mime (a vocabulary of precise physical actions inspired by the work of Etienne Decroux) to work with us at Stratford Circus.
Participants will be invited to engage with an active culture through work on rhythm, dances, songs and theatrical acts in order to create a world rich in possibilities, excitement and chance encounters.
The work will inspire strong discipline as well encouraging the participant to take greater risks in their work. Through the disparate elements, performers can find their own voices, their own rhythms and their own performance potential. The workshop will provide a different insight into creating theatre and explore approaches to engaging with an audience.
A high level of physical commitment will be expected.
The Zero Hour Mutinies will be a stepping stone for those who would like to participate in our professional touring work which will be featuring as part of the Aurora Nova festival at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2008.
Price for term: £45
