CORPUS workshop: The Art of Being Sheep or On the Importance of Being Ovine

In Workshops on March 24, 2011 by danceumbrella

For the very first time in Canada, a workshop is offered on the performance technique of Les moutons, CORPUS’ international phenomena.
Is it dance, performance art, method acting? Discover for yourself.

This 2-day intensive workshop will take you from Riverdale Farm’s intimate stables to our studio at Dovercourt House where every facet of sheep behaviour will be thoroughly analyzed and put to the test.

More than just an animal study, this all-encompassing workshop zeroes in on the fundamentals of performance, including the integration of voice and movement, improvisation, comic timing and precision. There will be an extensive warm-up designed specifically for Les moutons.

Open to anyone interested in performance technique.

April 13th and 14th, 2011 – 10am to 5pm
Riverdale Farm and Dovercourt House
Full workshop: $100 (register early : space is limited)
