So you have acrobatic skills? Now what? In this workshop we will lead participants through a series of explorations in creating acrobatic work that means something. We’ll start by investigating the creative body: How do you train your body to physically express the stories you want to tell? How do you develop the physical sensitivity required to create meaningful work with a partner? We’ll then go on to explore the act of creating highly-physical stories in ensemble. We will be drawing on the diverse backgrounds we share in UpLift: theatre, writing, partner acrobatics, grappling, and gestural movement.
