Introduction to The Batdorf Technique

Mornings 3 - 7 June 2024
(5 days / 12.5 hrs)
10 am - 12:30 pm

Open to anyone
Though the BSI is designed to train performers to have more emotional range and authenticity, we are opening up to anyone looking for simple and concrete tools for increasing their Interceptive Awareness (the ability to feel sensations from the involuntary systems of the body; breath, blood flow, temperature, pain/pleasure…) Good for yoga practitioners, meditators, runners, actors, dancers… Do you want to ‘get out of your head’? TBT is perfect, simple and can be applied to almost anything! (taught by T Doiron, K Gordon and E Batdorf)

Creating Bravely with Vitality and Purpose

Afternoons 3 - 7 June 2024
(5 days / 12.5 hrs)
1:30 pm - 4 pm

Typically for Performers BUT Open to CREATORS OF ALL KINDS
This one week session is designed to kick start or support your creative work (writing, movement, characters…). Batdorf has been supporting creators of performance work for over 30 years. She is known for offering very simple and practical creation tools, while also shaking up your approach. You will go deeply into the personal and then connect it with the universal. An opportunity to get some support, creating from your mind, heart and body! (taught by E Batdorf)
