Shake Shook Shaken is a monthly theater/movement workshop series produced by Julie Meckler. The series is designed for people to gently bring body awareness, allowing participants to open up, explore outside of their comfort zone, bond with each other, create and show.
Shake Shook Shaken is a dream of what a safe space could allow. A vision of a place for everybody to gather, look at each other, play and create in a non judgmental, trauma-informed way. It’s an invitation, a journey within and out, a surprise. Each workshop is unique. Julie is collaborating with a different artist for each session, letting their own questionings, studies, and interests guide what will be shared and offered. This month we’ll have special guest Anabel Hirano leading on the topic ECHO.
No prior dance or acting experience is necessary, just willingness to move and exhale. This workshop series is for anyone and everyone.
