Weekend Workshop with Antonina Sheina (21/22 Feb)

Antonina Sheina

I'm Antonina Sheina and I worked as a classically trained actor in the repertory company Malaya Bronnaya Theatre in Moscow. In 2008 I moved to Derry and joined Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company as an ensemble member. While working in Moscow I also developed a deep interest in movement practice, particularly contact improvisation and movement improvisation in performance. As an actor I have found that our specific approach to movement, as dancers, in Echo Echo is very relevant, useful and important. So I've decided to dedicate some time using my interest and knowledge in dance practice to look at some principles and practices we use from a drama/theatre perspective.

The main focus of the workshop will be on the space in a very broad way. We will play with some of those concepts.

Space as:

- architecture
- social space
- weather system
- time(pauses/ empty spaces in movement and speech )
- different textures
- proximities
- inner and outer

We will look at how movement affects the space and emotional state and vice versa.

The workshop is aimed at people who have done some acting before and are interested in developing their practice.

Sat 21st Feb: 4.30pm - 7.30pm

Sun 22nd Feb: 12pm - 5pm

Workshop fee for two days - £15 (£11)
Sat - £5 (£3)
Sun - £10 (£8)

The workshop takes place at Echo Echo Studios, Waterloo House, Magazine Street, Derry-Londonderry, BT48 6HH.
