Class Description

The Imaginative Body practice is a theatrical performance practice which utilizes the mind’s ability to visualize, create, and project worlds and scenarios into the space in concert with the body’s imaginative expression of those lived experiences. Working through improvisational worlds with Butoh and Gaga roots, we will develop the specific and authentic coordination between the emotional/ physical/ and imaginative bodies. Voice and performative techniques are additionally trained in this practice, breaking down the boundaries between performing as an actor and as a dancer. Throughout this practice, movement is generated from a quality and task based plane generating a proficiency in intention based physicality. The eyes garner special attention in this practice as our most familiar tool to see, visualize, and navigate worlds. At the same time, the practice works towards breaking down the hierarchy of the body and discovering new ways of seeing, knowing, and representing the imagined worlds we move through. 

The class will be taught in english and as most information will be disseminated through verbal image prompts, a proficient understanding of the language will be essential.
