Sebastián Calderón Bentín

This workshop offers a practice and philosophy of movement that translates into a technique for 1) the training of performers and 2) the creation of movement or action on stage. Isolating the performer’s experience into six principle languages, the work builds deep ensemble awareness, develops intuition, increases strength, flexibility and attention to detail. This workshop is aimed at actors, dancers, choreographers and directors alike.


Sebastián Calderón Bentin is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Theater and Performance Studies at Stanford University. Mr. Calderón Bentin has performed with Witness Relocation, Every house has a door, Anna Deavere Smith, Tim Etchells and Matthew Goulish’s Institute of Failure, and the International Contemporary Ensemble, among others.
