Masankho Banda


Tuesday's - May 21st to June 25th - 7 to 8:30pm ET (4:00-5:30 pm PT)

Your body is a library full of stories! Come and learn how to embody your stories in fun and easily accessible modalities! Masankho will guide you on how and when to use the body as an essential tool, how you move, and how you use the room. Work with full body movements to develop character and foster a personal warm-up routine. Movement also inspires improvisation. During this 6 week online course we will play with the popular storytelling forms:

Session 1 - DT1's and DT 3's
Session 2 - Big Body Stories
Session 3 - Side by Side Stories
Session 4 - Gesture Choir
Session 5 - Stories with instruments and music
Session 6 - Putting it all together

We will play with building story from a single word or phrase and also with Cultural and other themes. There will be large group and small group formats so that you can have plenty of opportunities to practice what you learn. Sign up for the whole series or come for the session or sessions that most interest you.
