Aporia Theater started the new year off right with a 3-day company retreat in Fairfax, Virginia. Each day began with an excursion into our beautiful surroundings (a walk at Burke Lake park, a wood chopping lesson) and continued with a full day of rehearsal at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, Virginia. The retreat focused on developing expressionistic movement for our upcoming production of WOYZECK (by Georg Buchner, translated and adapted by Artistic Director Sarah Wansley) using a variety of improvisational movement techniques. The company enjoyed having some time and space outside the city to explore new methods of working and develop an ensemble with some new members.
Special thanks to the Wansley and Barrett families for generously hosting dinners and putting us up for the night!
