Morning Class : Sam Burkett

Sam Burkett’s morning classes are focussed on helping us to ‘follow the fun’, using techniques and philosophies drawn from comedy improvisation and contemporary dance to react fully and emotionally as movers and as speakers.

We aim to get silly and sweaty: finding ways to incorporate play and spontaneity into our movement, and pushing ourselves to find new capabilities to improvise text and movement simultaneously. We will focus on developing distinct points of view and finding unusual patterns as we challenge our bodies and our brains.

These classes are for people who want to push themselves to be bigger, more emotional performers, and those who want to experiment with new approaches to devising physical theatre.

Sam Burkett is part of ID’s class programme by invitation of our Communications Assistant, Jay Yule.

For safety, we would like to encourage everyone to take a Covid-19 lateral flow test before attending. The studio will also be well-ventilated even in colder weather – please bring extra layers for warmth. Siobhan Davies Studios current risk assessment and policy is available to read here.
