Each session will include a warm-up, training and exercises intended to bring awareness to the movement habits stilts require. At the beginner level we work with proper stilt alignment, and can move into movement patterns, improvisation, and transitions to the ground and back. The pace and the content of this work will be responsive to the participants.
The first two sessions will be focused on walking and body movements on stilts.
In the last sessions, participants will learn about local birds and explore their movement qualities on stilts. The workshop will end with a costumed parade, using bird costumes created by Runaway Moon Theatre.
Ages: Families of all ages; stilts are provided; stilt blueprints available at workshop
Max. 10 participants
(Tue-Fri) August 7-10, 6:00 – 8:30 PM | $5 per person
