GROTOWSKI INTENSIVE: East meets West, Heart in the Centre

Linda Putnam, Stephen Wangh, Raïna von Waldenburg

Including participation and workshops with:
David MacMurray Smith, Gabriella Minnes Brandes and Claire Fogal.

AUGUST 2 – 10
10AM – 6PM
Scotiabank Dance Centre, Vancouver

Blue Egg is very pleased to present a unique gathering of Master Teachers in Grotowski-based physical training who share a deep understanding of how the relationship between body, heart and spirit are integral to performance.

This nine-day ensemble-oriented intensive is taught collaboratively by teachers whose primary interest is in the creative process of each student.

Psycho-physical unity, habitual patterns, choices, cycles of stimulus response, and the development of body as source for creativity are observed by the faculty. Students literally bring all parts of themselves into the work, discovering impulses that are fully embodied and emotionally resonant.

The intensive includes seminars, group discussions, community bag lunches with the faculty, and a full day of work in nature. We will be exploring the heritage of this training and how it has expanded since the 60’s when Linda and Steve first encountered Jerzy Grotowski.

Students of all levels may apply, priority will be given to those with Grotowski experience.
