Overview

Overview

In this short intensive, Yael Rasooly invites participants on a playful and inventive journey into the universe of Object Theater-- and into the process of creation itself! 

Participants will use their bodies and voices to explore the dialogue and relationship between performer and “ready-made” objects, discovering how those objects are filled with symbolism, emotion, memory and story.  Tools for working collaboratively and for working alone will be shared, as participants enjoy both fun group exercises/improvisations AND discussions around individual solo creation (a starting point for the development of future work).  This Master Class will celebrate techniques that encourage artists to pass through artistic blockage by working quickly, sensitively, and with heightened joy.

LEVEL:  Master Class | Ages 18+
