The New Year and Agent Red’s Workshop: Crash AlchemyJanuary 20, 2012
It is an exciting start to the new year. Sky Candy has grown from an awkward teenager to a strong adult and we are enjoying our beautiful new space in the warehouse at the East end of 6th Street. Did I mention we have also been given the wonderful gift of climate control? Our new schedule is filled with new and exciting classes. We have just entered into our second 6-week series classes and have added new drop-in classes. So for those of you who are not quite ready for a commitment, DON’T PANIC! We understand, we’re just getting to know each other. Let’s take it slowly. If your really unsure you can always stop in and check out a class; see what this aerials business is all about. You can check out our full schedule on our website. Look forward to seeing you all in class!
Other exciting news: Agent Red is teaching a Performance Technique Workshop this weekend at Sky Candy.
Im sure we’ve all heard “life is a performance.” You may say, this sounds like a typical cliche, yet in many ways it’s true. Everything from the clothes we present ourselves in too the way we speak is a spectacle of how we want others to see us. Our performances are often unintentional and subconscious, just the everyday moments of life. But one must ask; how does an actor convey that natural persona? How does one bring the subconscious to the conscious mind? Through performance one can transcend through the skin of the audience and implant a feeling. A feeling that sparks emotions, a feeling that creates questions and answers all at the same time. People study their entire lives to master the art of performance. One can be gifted in talents yet when they perform there is a missing connection. This weekend we are offering a workshop to help you create that performer-audience “mind tango,” or simply that connection that makes your stage presence un-forgetable. We are happy to host Agent Red and her Performance Technique workshop, also known as Crash Alchemy. Coming from an extensive performance background, Agent Red has created a workshop focusing on:
- presence, movement
- connecting with the audience and other performers
- improvisation and timing
- experiments in the weird, the awkward, and letting go
Whether you are an aerialist or even an aspiring performer we highly recommend this workshop. It is not often you are able to fully let go of all inhibitions and embrace the stage. More often than not in doing this one often finds a better understanding of themselves. And that’s sometimes the most important thing in life!
The workshop will held 4-7 on Saturday January 21st at Sky Candy’s lovely new space at 507 Calles st. Austin TX 78702
For reservations or questions please contact Chelsea Laumen at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you all there!
