In Chinese opera, all motion is a form of dance. Movement patterns are fluid, circular and bigger than life. This workshop introduces the basic vocabulary of gestures and postures used on stage. Participants will explore how this choreography is reflective of traditional Chinese philosophy, and how these elements that combine to build a character’s identity.
