Workshop Description

This workshop series teaches to the style and performance approach of Not Man Apart’s signature physical theatre productions, imparting our creative shorthand to potential company members so that they are equipped with tools for rapid creation in rehearsal and dynamic presence in performance. We will utilize many of our training components that combine elements of Viewpoint work, Contact Improvisation, dynamic partnering, Fluid Systems, body mechanics, Meyerhold, voice and breath, clown and comedy, and our very own Stick Work practice for energy delivery and building power.
