Rachel Rosenthal has been teaching and refining her original performance techniques for 45 years, beginning the 1950s in Hollywood with her company of performers, INSTANT THEATRE. She has done residencies with various colleges and universities, museums and galleries, artist colonies and companies throughout the US as well as in Canada and Europe. She also teaches regularly at her Espace DbD studio in Los Angeles. Her “Doing by Doing” approach integrates aesthetic, technique and performance theory with active movement and vocal improvisation. Her integrated approach to working recognizes that the human animal is a complex creature encompassing spiritual, political, social, emotional and physical realms. This is a rare opportunity to work with a teacher whose classes have been described by participants as a “mind/body spa.”
This workshop is a ‘master level’ class with limited space. The organizers are pleased to acknowledge the generous support of the Ontario Arts Council and the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council in helping to make this workshop possible.
