Ensemble Training Workshops

 

CALLING ALL DUBAI DANCE AND THEATER ENTHUSIASTS

 

Join Loom Ensemble for a month of intensive performer training, and continue from there join their next rehearsal process!

Loom creates “devised theater,” meaning performers are up on their feet creating the shows themselves. Participants are guided through the process of creating their own characters, spoken lines, movement and even song. Beyond that, each workshop session teaches techniques of voice, acting, and dance. 

After the monthlong workshop, Loom is creating a new dance-theater piece,  casting the ensemble of performers from the participants of the workshop. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to continue on into intensive rehearsals and performances April 22 – May 12.

No previous experience required.
