Moving Sculptures, Telling Stories - A movement for theater workshop

Byrd Productions Presents:
Moving Sculptures, Telling Stories - A movement for theater workshop by Kirsten Stephens

The moment you arrive on stage, before you even open your mouth, you have begun telling a story. Learning to sculpt your movements allows you to communicate with your audience more directly and with greater variety and precision. In this workshop we will delve into the techniques of both Marcel Marceau and Etienne Decroux (father of Corporeal Mime). We will explore the importance of weight, form, rhythm and breath in creating character, illusion, and story in search of a more complete actor.

Kirsten is a graduate of L'Ecole International de Mimordrame de Marcel Marceau in Paris,France. She first discovered the magic of inclinations and rotations and triple designs at a church
in Oklahoma City, finally deciding to head for Paris to audition for the school. She spent the next three years studying with Marceau, as well as the world's foremost practitioners of Corporeal
Mime (which is to mime what ballet is to dance), rounded out with classes in dance, fencing and acrobatics. Following graduation, Kirsten spent another year and a half touring Europe with
some of her classmates as Mime de Rien in an original production titled Le Pese, le Flouze, le Blé. Returning to the US, she moved to Minneapolis where she met Dean Hatton at the MargolisBrown physical theater company. Discovering a common love of mime-based
movement theater, the two have been working together as Kirsten and Dean since 2001.
