As performing artists we all – dancers, mimes and actors – depend on having a creative body.

While every human has natural creativity, there are ways and methods to uncover and enhance those potentials to give the performer an unlimited vocabulary in a language that is beyond the spoken Word.

Plastiques are the methods we are going to have a look at in this workshop.

*  Plastiques

Are exercises that help us to develop the plasticity we need to enable our body to express its creativity in a directed or guided way. Let’s say, for example, our act needs us to show water for whatever purpose, our body has to present the qualities of water.  It is liquid, heavy, it moves in waves or flows. This is where Plastiques helps us to access our physical creativity to identify with water and therefore create it in our world and hence, make it visible to the audience. In combination with the Toc impulse that was briefly touched on in Workshop I this creates Magic.

Please note that the Free Flow Dance Centre is a vaccine mandatory facility this fall winter season. Proof of vaccination cards should be provided for in-person spots. Zoom is also available
