A movement based practice exploring our relationship to the floor. Students can expect a series of exercises to open and enliven the feet as well as key floor exercises designed to help open the lines of communication between ease and energy. Some key hand and arm exercises will also be included. Please bring some layers to wear in case it’s cold, a short text fragment (like a sentence or two max) and a tennis ball if you’ve got one kicking around.
The Azimuth Performance Lab returns for another year of practice, development, and community. This professional ongoing performance training laboratory is for inquisitive artists who are interested in a long-term, exploratory, physical practice to enhance, supplement, and complement their performative and creative capacities. A blend of methodologies facilitated by local professional artists and visiting artists, these sessions are for artists who are committed to technique, discipline, curiosity, and play. The sessions are set at a professional training level; however the only prerequisite for the class is a commitment to the rigours of the work. No pass or fail. No end product to achieve. No certificate to mount proudly on your wall. Only the joy of moving, the passion for learning, and the exchange of community.
Azimuth Performance Lab sessions are drop-in and pay-what-you-can, held weekly on Sundays, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at the Foote Theatre School at the Citadel. Visit our website for ongoing updates for our session schedule. Come specifically for a facilitator, come to workout, come to be in a creative space with members of your community, come to get out of your head. Come when you can, make it a practice or a special reward. Pay what you can. Take what you will.
