An immersive physical acting retreat for performers

July 17 - 27
At Xenia Creative Development Centre
Bowen Island, BC

Join us in the lush natural beauty of Bowen Island, for a deep-dive into a psycho-physical approach to performance training based on the work of Jerzy Grotowski.

Nine (9) hours of training per day. Training happens in a large yurt and outdoors. It happens during meals. It happens in the sauna, in the lake, in character, in silence, and in slow motion.

Faculty: Raïna von Waldenburg & Wendy vanden Heuvel with guest teachers: Gabriella Minnes Brandes, David MacMurray Smith, Linda Putnam & Leannie Aalgaard
