Physical Theatre - Liberate Your Limbs
Saturday, March 22, 2014
10:00am - 2:00pm
Cost: $35.00 / $25.00 with student ID
Not bendy, nimble, or naturally graceful? Already lithe and would like to be lither? Both would be so welcomed to join!
This four hour workshop will explore the difference between precise, technical movement and free, unplanned movement inspired by the teachings of Jacques Lecoq. I hope to provide a casual atmosphere where participants feel encouraged to move boldly. The aim is to give individuals an
awareness of their physicality so that they might better construct their movement in whatever form of theatre they are involved in.
About the instructor: My most recent training was at LISPA (London International School of Performing Arts) where I received my MFA in conjunction with Naropa University. Since graduating in 2010 I have taught and directed in various forms and have immensely enjoyed acquainting performers with their physical abilities. Here is a brief video of who I am (left).

Yoga Fundamentals offers a chance to shake off the winter blues and warm up for spring! Appropriate for beginners or more seasoned practitioners, anyone looking for a class with a little less Sanskrit and a little more time to find proper alignment in poses. We'll laugh, we'll stretch, we'll sweat, we'll go over the foundation poses, flow through Sun Salutations, and break down some yoga jargon. How does one shine one's collarbones forward? Come find out!
No mats/props provided. Please bring a yoga mat and a towel.
Alexandra Kenney: Alexandra is a 200CYT, having received her certification through Back Bay Yoga under the instruction of Lynne Begier, Ryan Cunningham, and Sarah Sturges. There she built upon her 10+ year practice an incredible framework of knowledge from some which to teach. Striving not to lecture students, but to develop practitioners, a lifelong interest in both anatomy and psychology inspires her to align from the inside out; yoga for each individual body. By learning to listen to our own bones and muscles, getting to know our guts, we take the the first step toward finding our fullest expression. Against this practical foundation, she firmly believes in embracing the ridiculous, that every story, no matter how long or serious, always has a punchline. Through humor, science, and personal exploration, she seeks to help each 'student' to find in their own practice whatever they need most. Strength, balance, a new posture, a moment of calm, or perhaps even the thrill of getting your nose to your shins.
