Classes and Workshops

Coymotion offers training, coaching and classes for the actors, dancers and you who seek a more mindful awareness of your body in your work and creative life. Through analysis of motion and its relationship to text/language and environment, Coymotion investigates the connection to the external world through the interrogation of internal and external movement of the body. By developing and exploring a particular approach/process to making theatre and sharing this through teaching and open workshops for other practitioners, coymotion builds a particular style of theatre making, presentation and process. Coymotion draws from and investigates through Viewpoints training and exploration. Suzuki Actor training is also very strongly used within Coymotion’s ongoing development, as is years of classical and contemporary dance training, and an acute sense of spatial awareness. The Viewpoints and Suzuki methods are used in synergy with each other as learnt from Ann Bogart and Siti Company NYC. Combined with Peta Coy’s extensive experience as a practitioner in the dance and theatre world.
