Sensory Immersive Theater Workshop

17 April 2018, 18:00-21:30

This workshop is part of sensory immersive theater project co-created and directed by Veronica Rodriguez and Karim Galici. In collaboration with North Park University and Links Hall.

What is theater of the senses?
Sensory theater is a type of performance that uses sensory inputs and scenery as an important element of storytelling in a production. Stories are told using smells, installations, darkness, taste, sounds, interactions with touch and intimate settings. Everything is put together to make the audience feel fully present in the production, making them an active participant of the narrative in the story. They are usually intimate immersive shows. Its theater that uses the whole body as a communication tool.

Our workshop!
The workshop will consist of different playful games in which participants deepen their connection to their bodies,
● Using our senses for storytelling: The human body is a wonderful machine and it has physical sensory memory that can be stimulated by our sense of touch, hearing, smell, sight, and taste. Each sense will be studied on its own to experience its connection with our subconscious mind and create an specific narrative.
● Acting tools for an immersive performance; We will have a holistic approach to movement, connecting with others by letting the others connect with us. This is a movement, voice, and approach training.
● The Space; We will play with our sense of perception, our intuition, encourage curiosity, and explore different rhythms, darkness and light, and the importance of the space. We will explore how we can charge a space with enough elements that the space itself tells the story.
● Object and puppet manipulation as a means for storytelling.
