Calling all Theater and Drama Lovers! Feel like acting but don't know where to start? Tired of the virtual and feel like real connections with fellow Montrealers? Why not try a LIFEBLUT: not an acting school, but a forum that provides drama direction, partners and an opportunity to grow and learn about yourself. LIFEBLUT is dramatic space that gives you the freedom to relax and get comfortable as you meet other like-minded people who share your interest in acting and drama. LIFEBLUT is a once-a-week opportunity in the heart of the Plateau where you can be physical, emotional, and connected to others as you draw out the REAL you.
The HOPE: Joy, Vitality, Connectivity, and new Friends for all who join.
The BASICS: Wear something in which you feel comfortable and can move around easily in. The room is big enough for about 10 people to be comfortable in. The Work will be in English. The evening will start with introductions. Then we will get right into the Work. The Work will be physical and emotional. Sometimes you'll be partnered, sometimes you'll be in a group, and sometimes alone. At all times, you'll be respected and considered. Digital Free Zone: All phones/tablets will be collected and shut off until the end of the class.
What HAPPENS: Drama work will start with many group warm-ups. After that, you'll be paired up or tripled-up in small groups and given your initial dialogues. Everyone will have a chance to present, work and receive direction. The only expectation is that everyone comes with an open mind, a focus on building community, a sense of interest in others and a curiosity to what drama might offer themselves.
DISCLAIMER: This work can be challenging emotionally. You can go as deep inside yourself as you want to go. Nothing is demanded. Note too, there can be physical accidents (it is physical sometimes) but this is very rare. I try to keep everyone's safety and emotional health in mind as we work.
