Week 1: Awareness, Availability, Responsiveness

Physical presence, play, and the responsive body. Availability to the impulse, the partner, the physical world and the circumstance of the moment, through improvisation and ensemble movement studies.

Week 2: Dynamic Movement

Whole body engagement with natural forms and forces via movement and gesture; foundations of the actor’s presence and resonance in the space of the stage. The stage is a mysterious and living realm, a poetic space.

Week 3: The Play of the Mask

From studies of the natural world–its forms, forces, rhythms – to the discovery of characters. The physical play of the mask in time and space, leading to characterization, dramatic action and ensemble devising.

Classes meet 5 days a week; there will be 5 hours of class time each day, plus rehearsals outside of class. Students will work each week in small ensembles on themes assigned for a Friday laboratory showing and faculty critique.



For all students participating in our summer workshops vaccination is required including a booster to be up to date according to the CDC. If you are not vaccinated please reach out to our School Administrator, Tawny Foskett (, with questions and to pursue an exemption. Masking requirements will remain in place in certain instances, both in and outside of classes. More details will be provided.
