VIEWPOINTS WORKSHOPS – 5 MAY
A Physical Theatre Training on Awareness, Presence & Self-Understanding
by Julianne Eveleigh and Robyn Sedgewick
10.15am-1.15am, 5 May 2019
‘Viewpoints’ represents a methodology that connects the performer to the fundamental elements of time and space, through the exploration of tempo, duration, kinaesthetic response, repetition, gesture, architecture, spatial relationship and topography.
In this three-hour workshop you will be introduced to physical techniques that help to free up the mind and body and together we will explore the playful nature of improvising within a structure.
Julianne trained as an actor in the UK and worked in both theatre and television before returning to Australia and specialising as a voice teacher. She has spent the past 27 years working with performers of all kinds and joined the Arts Academy at Federation University in 2008. She has a master’s degree in Alexander Technique and the voice, and is one of the contributors to the publication, Galvanizing Performance: The Alexander Technique as a Catalyst for Excellence.
Robyn originally trained as a dancer/actor and she introduced dance programs at TAFE and started Graffiti Dance Theatre, a community dance company, acquiring grants from local, state, and Commonwealth bodies. Robyn spent 10 years choreographing and touring full length dance theatre programs influenced by Pina Bausch.
A serious spinal injury left her in a full body cast with prognosis of paraplegia. Robyn recovered, redirecting her life and established a successful alternative healing practice in Melbourne and Ballarat.
