Instructor: Jacob Mooney This workshop is for actors, dancers, musicians, and anyone who wants to express themselves more fully and freely. We will draw from physical theater, butoh, clown, modern dance, and myth. We will cultivate presence, awareness and potency in both our performances and in our lives. We will inspire ourselves to walk our edges, push our limits, and dive deep within ourselves. Through this work we hope to connect with other creative people who can laugh together, work together, and collaborate on future initiatives based upon the foundation we build in these sessions. Jacob is an actor, dancer, clown and stilt performer. He has studied with Lume Theater in Brazil, Smascherati clown theater in Italy, Yumiko Yoshioka of butoh dance company Ten Pen CHii. Jacob has also trained and performed with the International Theater Collective, Berlin- based Grotest Maru, and the Carpet Bag Brigade stilt theater company. Jacob also directed the Slippery Theater Stilt company in Portland, OR and is the current director of the New Cascadia Clown Army.
