2 Hour Master Class

With both co-founders of Paper Doll Militia
Sarah Bebe Holmes & Rain Anya
We have been teaching Vertical Theatre Method for over a decade now, all over the world, in group workshops and master classes. Just because we cannot physically be together does not mean we cannot be creative together. Join us for our premier Remote Vertical Theatre Method Workshop. Join from your own space on your own preferred apparatus. We will be performing together and witnessing each other, honing our creative expression in aerial arts.
Want to join, but do not have access to an aerial studio? You can still join. All you need is 1-2 ground objects which you would want to work with. Examples: a chair, an unrigged silk, a hula hoop, a piece of string tied to different locations in your room,
Vertical Theatre Method is an investigation of aerial arts with the focal point of theatricality and authenticity of both movement and content. The Method has been in development since 2007 by artists Rain Anya and Sarah Bebe Holmes. This workshop is a performative based workshop exploring the expressive nature of aerials using improvisation, physical theatre, musicality, character, and exercises in stage presence. Layering
your aerial work with creativity and content, we will work with with techniques for expressing human emotion and storytelling within the movement. Looking at creative approaches to building an act or performance piece, this workshop is for students who feel comfortable on an apparatus enough that they can explore beyond the tricks.
