Making Art out of Acrobalance
Limited Capacity full

Put some theatre into your thigh stands! In this workshop, we will use imagery, language, and other inspiring sources to generate and explore new creative partner/group acro material. We will include a review of the basic building blocks of acrobalance. This workshop will be creative, communicative, physical, and fun. Ideal for anyone who wants to: spark new ideas about adding creativity to your work, find new ways of playing and working with people, and just have fun! We will work in small groups; a partner is not required. Previous experience with partner acro/acrobalance is helpful, but not required.

Accessibility considerations: this workshop will be accessible for people of all abilities. Please speak to the instructors if you have any concerns or special needs, but be assured that we will easily be able to make accommodations as needed during the workshop.
