Class Description

Action Theater™ is a unique form of embodied improvisational theatre. Through playful and rigorous exercises, which isolate and recombine movement, sound and language, we broaden our range of improvisational skills in order to become open and creative in the present moment. Always working from a fully embodied state, we develop spatial awareness and access to our imagination, crafting creative impulses into clear images, stories and dreamscapes. This technique turns the mind inside out, examines existing habits and opens up new possibilities. Working in solos, duets, trios and also as an ensemble, we bring attention to the details of our physical choices, to the quality and range of our vocalizing. We approach speech and words as physical actions in building narratives.


Sarah Bild

Montreal choreographer/performer Sarah Bild follows an intuitive stream of physical imagery to create deeply textured and organic works of dance. Her visually impressive solo and group works, presented for the last 25 years in venues and festivals across Canada, raise questions about the human presence on this planet. Recently, Sarah Bild is engaged in the 50+ project, which addresses the representation of the aging female body on stage. This work has brought her investigations inward to reclaiming her own body through performance. Sarah Bild is the first improviser certified to teach Action Theater™ in Quebec. She is part of the faculty at l’École de danse contemporaine de Montréal and is invited to teach and choreograph in many training programs across Canada.
