This 2.5 hour workshop is an introduction to 'extra-live' theatre. Extra-live theatre is any kind of performance that is aware the audience exists and the performers are able to respond in the moment to anything that happens. We will be exploring how the performer is able to carry the architecture of the theatre around inside of themselves and therefore are ready and able to perform anywhere - at anytime.
It is an introduction, but the techniques are rigorous and participants should expect to be challenged. But the road to success is paved with playfulness and the best tool for doing it is a generous spirit. Anyone can master this workshop and the only requirement is that you are able to be kind to yourself.
Jolie Booth has been teaching theatre skills to students of all ages for over fifteen years and runs weekly classes in Brighton. She trained in acting at the Academy of Creative Training, fooling at the Nomadic Academy for Fools, clowning at How to be a Stupid and physical theatre at Aurora Nova.
PAY WHAT YOU CAN
Some Kriya Arts events are priced on a Pay What You Can basis, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have participated.
We want to encourage more people to come and experience theatre, more often. Pay What You Can not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed price, and also removes the financial risk of paying for a workshop in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Spaces will be available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have done the workshop. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help Kriya Arts to pay the artists who ran the workshop, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived 15 minutes before the workshop starts. At the end of the end of the workshop you will be handed an envelope in which you can place your donation inside in cash, or you can pay over paypal. Either way you can decide what to pay.
We look forward to welcoming you!
