The best 3 weeks of your summer. July 28 – Aug 15, 2014
Irondale’s long tradition of ensemble theatre comes together with the work of the physical theatre. An infusion of dynamic, new energy. A fantastic environment for learning and creation.
The Irondale School of Ensemble Theatre is offering a workshop for emerging and established professional actors and other performers and creators who want to engage with this work.
This summer’s 3-week intensive will focus on the actor creator. Daily training will involve acting, performance, Pilates, conditioning and dance. A mask building component will take place in the evenings. This workshop is intense and very physical. Full of enthusiasm, inspiration, hope and love for the theatre.
So come. Be ready to move, and be engaged mind and body in this dynamic theatre.
Tuition: $1200 ($900, with subsidy)
Deadline: We will take students until the workshop is full. Artists who live in Nova Scotia, students of Dalhousie University, Syracuse University and Acadia University are eligible for a subsidy.
Accommodations: Halifax is a small city full of universities. Five, in fact! So there a many housing options. You can arrange to stay on one of the nearby campuses in residence, or we can help you find a sublet or a shared accommodation.
Other great reasons to come take this workshop: Halifax is a fun, walk-able city. You’ll be close to lakes and ocean beaches (to which we will take field trips…), terrific restaurants, tons of pubs & bars, an incredible local music scene, three circus schools, an insane number of yoga studios, the weather in the summer is awesome ( warm/hot days, cooler nights), two major Farmer’s Markets, at the same time as the workshop there is a Busker Festival, the TD Halifax Jazz Festival….we could go on.
