SECTION THREE


The Etude

 

*The Etude represents one of ECT's most powerful rehearsal and collaborative tools* 

 

Using the following 5 ingredients, come prepared to fill our space with your deepest, rawest, poetic truth - all in under 5 minutes:

 

  1. TEXT from your favorite passage of any fairytale
  2. SINGING any part of any song from any fairytale
  3. Expression through DANCE/MOVEMENT
  4. ONE OBJECT and only one object should be used throughout

 

The key to succeeding in this section is to break free of performance and FEARLESSLY fill the space with your rawest, truest knowing of that fairytale passage. Every person in the room should FEEL and EXPERIENCE what you bring alive through use of the above ingredients. Prepare to immerse vs. impress us with this creative opportunity. An Etude is not an answer, but rather an exploration and represents the ECT rehearsal perspective of preparing as much as possible, and then letting it go by fearlessly surrendering to the moment ... riding the wave of whatever reveals itself.
