Special Topics: Rasaboxes is a course in the study, training and application of a suite of exercises known as rasaboxes, devised by Richard Schechner and developed by Paula Murray Cole, Michele Minnick and members of East Coast Artists.
Participants train in rasaboxes exercises including rigorous daily training in hatha yoga, extensive breath, voice and movement work, and solo and ensemble exercises. The training is then applied to the creation of devised performance work by mixing, layering, and scoring rasas to create complex, psychophysical expressions of emotion/energy, to compose dramatic characters and scene work, non-narrative performance compositions, dance, music or visual art, or special applications in fields of interest beyond the arts.

(There will be a $10 class fee due at the first class meeting to cover costs of class room materials and handouts).
