Training is an essential element of our creative process: it’s a platform for creating work and a provocation towards the unknown. Its’s a way to collaborate across disciplines, and a way to engage with the world in an imaginative way. Rooted in a mix of lineages and practices, this ongoing physical and vocal training dilates the presence, energy, and awareness of the performer and builds the expressive capacities of the ensemble for each project. We regularly share our training practice through residencies, workshops, apprenticeships, and monthly participatory Open Training sessions. The next Open Training session will be held in late May at Play House (12657 Moran St, Detroit). $15-$20 sliding scale. Check back for dates here or on our Facebook page.
