“The Porous Body” will work our bodies, our energies, and our hearts.
This workshop uses Sonia Soares’s working process as a creator, director, and performer. The purpose of the workshop is to navigate through modalities- visual arts, theater, “the clown”, mime, psychology, to create access to limitless potential and expression in our bodies. We are material beings, we live in our bodies, we express through our bodies, but we are more than a body. It is a tool and a vehicle. Exploring the body as a creative power, we will activate our imagination, memories, dreams, desires and feeling states, transforming them into communication.
Through specific improvisation exercises and physical and theatrical activities, participants will experience a more porous body where the flow of images and sensations connect to the pulse and action of the moment. Vulnerability acts as an ally as we build a porous body/mind and inhabit a magical world. Soares will direct participants inside these prompts to find a richer performance.
We will develop tools to enhance our artistic and personal journeys. This workshop is specifically geared towards performers but is relevant and open to anyone who wishes to live with more presence, freedom, and authenticity.
Workshops will be available soon!
