In this daylong workshop you’ll learn the practice of Motion Theater® — to tell your stories on your feet, utilizing language, sound and movement as your tools of expression. This workshop is designed to raise your spirits, inspire personal insight, enhance self confidence, develop presence and advance your skills as a leader, writer or performer.
$125–175 (sliding scale) for this daylong event.
Become part of the welcoming, growing Motion community.
Motion has a strong movement component, so we teach movement as part of the training. It also has a strong narrative element, so we teach what we call writing on your feet, as the narrative is spoken rather than written for the page. Combining these elements, the body as well as the voice is used for a full out form of improvised autobiographical expression. Move like you’ve never moved. Sing, growl, chant. Tell the stories only you can tell and experience a bone-deep, soul-deep liberation. Feel lighter, wiser, sweeter, and, yes, hungry for more Motion.
