FAST exists to support methods of training and creation as a daily practice for professional performing artists. This is not a workshop, but rather an experiment in sharing artistic practices in order to support and develop our community and our art.
Each open session is designed to facilitate tension release, play, and collaborative creation.
The simplest explanation?
Lie on the floor, use what you got, and try to play well with others
Exercises based on the Alexander Technique and other ways to make your body happy
Give yourself a break, let yourself breath, get those limbs and lungs moving
Games and activities based in various training practices, anything that encourages awareness, specificity and range of possibility
Have something you want to explore? This is the place!
Pick a text, any text. What can we do with it before time runs out?
What better way to prepare yourself for your next project or to keep yourself active between contracts than to engage in the act of creation, ideas of failure, collaboration, and storytelling.
FAST also practices the Suzuki Method of Actor Training! We invite those with experience to join us at Citadel + Compagnie (304 Parliament Street).
