Klimovitskaya’s Kinetic Mind Training is a way to free the intuitive, creative mind and enhance a performer’s visceral presence. It challenges our everyday, analytical thought processes and guides artists toward their own deep and unique creative cores where they can tap into true presence —that absolute presence of being and spontaneity of reaction that makes animals so magnetically attractive.
A workshop for artists who want:
-To reconnect with their creative selves, which in turn will open the way to organically connect with others
-To explore their idiosyncratic mental/physical patterns, which limit artistic freedom
-To access the deeper feelings held in the body, allowing the mind to become absorbed by the body and the body by the mind
-To embody the character through specific behavior
-To contact Klimovitskaya’s unique way of ‘Animal Work’
Registrants will be sent in advance information of what to prepare for the workshop.
Dates: June 14th & 15th // 10:00am – 3:00pm
Pre-registration is required
