The wonderful Mike Reinhart and I have come together to present an offering to the Toronto performance community:
A monthly movement jam open to performers of any discipline or training.
Partnered with hub14, this movement jam will happen on the last Wednesday of each month.*
We will open the studio as early as 6:30pm for personal warm-up and mingle-time and begin the jam proper at 7. Expect to move, to participate in some guided exercises lead by Mike and myself, and to challenge yourself in a few lightly structured improv jams. We’ll wrap each night by 9pm, after which there’s always time for cool downs and conversation.
We would like to keep this jam as accessible** as possible, but will also be accepting PWYC donations to help keep this thing running. The bottom line, however, is: if you want to be here, we want you here!
The first jam of the year will be
Wednesday, February 28th
@ hub14 (14 Markham St., Toronto)
7 – 9pm | doors @ 6:30 | PWYC
You can find a list of future dates and a contact form on the Jam’s page here.
I look forward to moving with you.
*With the exception of December because of the mess that is Christmas and New Years. In December, the jam will happen on the 3rd Wednesday (Dec. 19th).
**Please note hub14 is not a barrier-free facility: there are about 10 steps leading up to the studio.
Description. A one person set, where one suggestion will be used to created multiple characters and possibly scenes.
