PIG IRON TECHNIQUES FOR THE PERFORMER-CREATOR
The Orchard Project is proud to present Pig Iron Techniques for the Performer-Creator to be held October 7-8, 2017 in New York City.
Led by Mel Krodman of Pig Iron Theater Company
This 12-hour workshop will focus on the performer as creator. Rigorous physical exercises lead to the investigation and development of character. Ensemble driven devising approaches lead to the creation of original movement, text and styles, resulting in short performance pieces. Krodman will pull from the vocabulary of Jacques Lecoq, Pig Iron’s signature methods of company creation, as well as her own devising tactics.
October 7-8, 2017
10am-5pm both days (with one hour lunch break)
Location TBD (in Manhattan)
A limited number of scholarships are available for participants who might not otherwise be able to attend the Intensive. To inquire, email firstname.lastname@example.org
