Walk and Talk: Monologues for Dancers
Alexandra Beller/Dances with Todd Coulter
Led by Todd Coulter, WALK AND TALK will concentrate on the development and performance of a single monologue over the two days. Incorporating Stanislavski, Laban, anatomy, and basic improvisational skills, the workshop approaches text from the point of view and knowledge base of the dancer/mover. We will analyze text, move text, speak text, and help create a piece that may be used at auditions and/or give you the tools to work on a piece on your own. What we hope to find is that acting and dancing or speaking and moving are not wholly different modes of performance but close cousins employing different parts of our mind/body intelligence.
