Theatre exercises are centered on movement and language. There are no expectations other than to be introduced to theatre exercises and discuss the experience!
This series does not include a performance aspect. Participants are asked to bring water and wear clothes that they can easily move in. Yoga mats and blankets are encouraged, but not necessary. No prior theatre experience is necessary. A willingness to try is highly desirable!
