Title: Remembering the Body, Movement workshop with Annalisa Dias

 

Dates: Saturday, April 9th & Saturday, April 23rd

Times: 3:30pm-5pm

Location: Coors Dance Studio at Flashpoint (916 G Street NW)

 

Description: In conjunction with One Word More at the Mead Theatre Lab, Annalisa Dias will offer two movement workshops aimed at rediscovering connection with the physical body. In these workshops, participants will grapple with the show's themes of the physically encoded memory, embodied history, and re-discovery of self through the body. Annalisa's training methodology comes from a diverse background including theatre of the oppressed, Lecoq technique, kalaripayattu, yoga, gymnastics, contemporary dance, and mime. All levels encouraged and welcome! These workshops will focus less on technique and more on developing internal and external connectedness between space and self. 

 

Cost: $5 with a ticket to One Word More or $20 stand alone workshop fee.

 

Information for participants: Please wear clothes in which you can move. Shoes are not permitted in the Coors Dance Studio. You may wish to bring a water bottle and a journal.
