Treasure Trunk Theater at Live ArtsTREASURE TRUNK THEATER (AGES 4-6)

Does your child beg to wear dress-up clothes to kindergarten? Would your child rather play imaginative games than eat? Then Treasure Trunk Theatre is the perfect class for them.  Each day we’ll open up the treasure trunk to reveal new possibilities. Through guided use of simple costumes, props, and sets, children will use their imaginations to explore body awareness and vocal expressivity to create new characters and stories. Along the way, they’ll develop key skills of cooperation and social interaction. This workshop will culminate in a demonstration of the games and exercises the children play.

Creating Performance Outside of the TheaterCREATING PERFORMANCE OUTSIDE OF THE THEATER (AGES 10-13)

This series is about creating Dance-Theatre performance outside of the traditional box of the Theater in everyday locations. We will work in specific sites in the Live Arts building and take field trips to McGuffey Park to experience working outdoors. The creation process will start with a question: What stories or images come to mind based on the place or the architecture of a place? How can this place inform movement? How can the movement of the body respond by mimicking or complementing a particular place? We will develop short movement statements in chosen sites which will lead to a group performance at the end of the class. Participants will each have the opportunity to contribute their creative voice as they learn how to take an idea and translate it into the body and landscape. This course will leave students with new tools to think about everyday spaces and how they move through them.
