Boundless II: Saturday, 01/17/04 through Sunday, 01/25/04
Boundless I :Saturday, 05/31/03 through Sunday, 06/08/03
Master Teachers Stephen Wangh (author
of An Acrobat of the Heart) and Wendell Beavers (Master Teacher, Viewpoints and Somatic Movement) co-taught and collaborated
for the first in the June 2003 workshop with Synaesthetic’s own Aubrey Hardwick. In January 2004 we added more days
and Lisa Sokolov (Originator and Master Teacher, Embodied VoiceWork) to the program.
The Viewpoints, Physical Acting and Embodied VoiceWork all create powerful containers for improvisation. The Viewpoints,
originated by postmodern dancer/choreographer Mary Overlie, cultivate multi-layered compositional awareness. Physical Acting
connects theatre games, character work and emotional imagery to the performer's body and voice, and Embodied VoiceWork opens
the listening/sensing body to the language of non-verbal free vocal improvisation. Each of these disciplines emphasizes deep
listening and kinesthetic response. Combined, they provide an expansive vocabulary which galvanizes performers to risk being
entirely present in every moment.
