The Walkabout ensemble in collaboration with Delhi's Guild of the Goat will explore shared techniques of its ensemble practice, emphasizing the web of connections between self, body and voice in relation to group action. The workshop will engage individual exploration of breath and movement, group listening and improvisation, a dialectic approach to partner acrobatics, and action in song. All bodies and experience levels are welcome. The workshop will invite opportunities for vigorous movement and physical contact, but they are not requisite for participation.

Walkabout Theater Walkabout is a multidisciplinary ensemble of eight artists committed to a unique practice of theater-making in Chicago. Radically process-oriented, Walkabout is distinguished by a deep investment in the creation of each ensemble project, in the personal and artistic development of each ensemble artist, and in the cultural and artistic advancement of ensemble practice. Walkabout produces three streams of programming: free outdoor phenomena focused on community engagement and unique artistic collaborations; world-premiere, touring performances created by the ensemble; and training workshops investigating techniques of co-creation.
