Artist Gym: Tension

  • Alliance of Resident Theatres / New York 520 8th Avenue New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)

Co-facilitators: Isabella Batts and Sarah Plotkin
You walk onto the subway. Someone’s staring at you. You smell something weird and wonder where and what it is. The lights flicker for a moment and you start to imagine the worst case scenario…Tension is all around us! Sometimes it’s created by what’s really happening in front of us and sometimes it’s just in our minds. For this Artist Gym, we will begin with exercises that explore tension in our lives, and will move on to a discussion of the relationship between theatrical and emotional tension. Using movement, sound, lights, and props we will then craft and explore methods of creating tension onstage.
