Movement & the Mask with Adelka Polak
This workshop introduces various dance and bodywork techniques used to approach the creation of a character through the physical presence. These techniques can increase individual strength, stamina and stage presence. Spoken words, emotions, and body language become more powerful with the consideration of posture, breath, and gesture. This workshop aides in preparation for the transformations that occur within the mask. These techniques have applied to actors performing Shakespeare, dancers, singers, puppeteers, and performers using stylized movement.
