Moment Work Training Lab Intensives
Introduction to Moment Work:
Exploring the Elements of the Stage
In this Lab, participants actively engage with the non-textual elements of the stage — exploring lights, sound, costumes, movement, character, and architecture — to discover their full theatrical potential and inherent poetry.
1) Encourage all participants to think theatrically, discovering the multitude of ways that the elements of the stage can communicate without text.
2) Participants gain insight into how to analyze and critique the work from a practical and theoretical Moment Work perspective.
Using Moments to Create a Narrative
Based on a theme chosen by Tectonic, participants in Level II are encouraged to continue an active dialogue between their theatrical ideas and the elements of the stage. Participants direct their own thematic Moments by starting with a piece of text, a simple phrase of music, an image, or a body of research and incorporating all of the elements of the stage to build a sequenced and layered work.
