  This workshop is for performers, actors, directors, physical theatre devisors, drama teachers, and musicians. Our starting point is a focus on  playfulness, presence, physical awareness, and ‘complicity’ with other performers. It combines the Awareness Through Movement work of the  Feldenkrais Method with ensemble exercises and games in innovative ways to assist the performer expand creative and physical possibilities,  and their ensemble skills. PlayMoves is inspired by the work of Monika Pagneux, a renowned European theatre teacher, whose quest is to  awaken the performer, inviting the attentive and joyful performing physical presence that marries risk with vulnerability and self-confidence  with authenticity. Wonderful writing exercises that begin from the physical, are integrated into this week.  ______________________________________________________

This has been the most awakening and inspiring workshop I have attended in a while. Really wonderful.” Actor. “An engaging variety of ways to instigate play from each of us. I enjoyed the  alternation with Awareness through Movement sessions. This kept both the physical body lively along with the playful mind." Ruby, Aerial artist  “I definitely have something to take back with me that will not only influence my methodology but things I can pass onto students.” Actor / Drama Teacher /  Director.   _____________________________________________________
