Adam Paolozza, Risk Taking & Play

April 6 - RISK TAKING and PLAY with Adam Paolozza

About the Workshop: 

This workshop is focused on encouraging you to engage in letting go of inhibitions and finding ways to tap into essential play which we believe is a vital way for artists to develop and enjoy their craft. You will focus on broadening and stretching your theatrical and personal knowledge.

About the Artist:

Adam Paolozza is an award-winning performer, director, writer and producer.  In 2014 Adam created BAD NEW DAYS to explore his vision of a contemporary poetic theatre of gesture: "I'm searching for an autonomous theatre that responds to, rather than reflects, contemporary existence. A theatre based in a practice dedicated to formal experimentation and collaborative, devised creation. My hope is to foster a more active, empathetically engaged spectatorship."Adam and Bad New Days have won multiple Dora Mavor Moore awards, he's been an RBC Emerging Artist Award nominee and a K.M. Hunter Award nominee. He is a former Urjo Kareda resident artist and a former member of the Playwrights' Unit at Tarragon Theatre. Adam has taught theatre independently over the last 20 years, as well as teaching at the Soulpepper Academy, Toronto Metropolitan University, University of Toronto, Humber College and Brock University. Adam's goal as instructor is to help students develop a spontaneous mind and body connection through a coupling of formal technique and improvisation. He is a graduate of École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq, Ryerson Theatre School and has studied Corporeal Mime with the Decroux company Intrepido in Paris. He studied mask-making with the Sartori family in Padua, IT.
