This workshop is open to everyone, those with theater/movement/martial arts training and to those without.
We invite you, through a provocative meeting at the intersection of two forms; each steeped in present moment awareness and embodied improvisation…to experience deep play through physicality, communication, and imagination. Aikido study focuses on the creative potential unleashed from a connected state of mind, body, and spirit; leading to greater freedom in an ability to respond rather than react. Action Theater channels this responsive freedom into fresh vocabularies of expression in movement, vocalization and speech. This workshop builds on our shared fascination with the micro-worlds of timing, pulse, and how the music of movement falls, arrests, and flows into expanded communication. Contact: email@example.com
AIKIDO; a modern Japanese martial art, developed in the 20th century by Morihei Ueshiba (O Sensei), synthesizes many other martial arts into a unified “way of harmony.” While Aikido principles and practices derive from a martial tradition, its “goal” is not the destruction of an “opponent”, but rather true unification, authentic communication, resolution of conflict, and the co-creation of a peaceful world through the development of peaceful people.
ACTION THEATER, developed by Ruth Zaporah, is a way into improvisation through an embodied doorway. It employs the awakened physical body as a vehicle to express imagination and experience with depth, precision, and delight. Action Theater cultivates a fearless, gentle relationship with the unknown through play with space, time, and feeling.
