Shadow Puppet and Aerial Act Creation Workshops May 6
Posted April 23, 2017
Shadow Puppet Storytelling
In this workshop, students will learn to tell their own stories through light and shadow. From designing a full narrative through shadow puppetry, or simply creating expository pieces for a longer physical performance, students will work with different methods of creating their own shadow puppets.

Aerial Choreography and Act Creation
This advanced level workshop builds upon tricks and skills students already have in order to begin the process of act creation and refinement. Students will explore some of the basics of Laban movement analysis and learn to incorporate them into choreography. The workshop will focus on how to combine movements with transitions and intention. Additionally, students will learn to be members of effective aerial critique groups and walk through the process of providing praise and criticism for their peers. Prerequisites include the ability to stay in the air on your chosen aerial apparatus for three to five minutes, ability to invert, and the ability to perform several moves in a sequence.
