October 22, 2017: Playback Open Jam

Come play with us!  If you are curious about Playback and want to learn basic forms that help provide safety and honor the larger truths in stories this jam is for you.

2017-06 VSA Texas - 37

The workshop is FREE!  All you need to do is SIGN UP HERE!

Overview: The group will begin with basic warm ups to create comfort and safety for participants. We will be working with simple impressions from the week as our raw material. Depending on time, we will learn and practice fluid sculptures, a versatile form that allows multiple layers of a story to be played simultaneously. We will also work with pairs, a form that allows contrasting emotions and elements of a story to be seen and heard, side by side.

Location:We will be meeting at Pflugerville High School—look for the theatre toward the back of the school (east side parking lot).
