MMDG Master Class Series

Theater Mitu: Whole Theater Laboratory

This hands-on, physical workshop gives participants an overview of Theater Mitu's core research, training, laboratory, and creation methodologies known as Whole Theater. Focusing on corporeal training and creation tools, participants are guided through a wide range of physical practices and training to develop the tools and muscles that allow for a reactive translation of creative instinct into direct, artistic action. Building from the company's extensive international research, the training integrates elements from some of the world's most important classical theater and ritual traditions, including practices from India, Japan, Bali, Mongolia and Thailand.
Led by Associate Artist Attilio Rigotti and other company members, participants will take the idea of WHOLE THEATER from the abstract and theoretical to the intensely physical.
For experienced artists of all disciplines.
NOTE: Participants will be required to come in a simple uniform (black pants, and white shirts, no logos!).
