Physical Performance Workshops for Youth (12 – 17)

With a background in theatre and martial arts coaching, Binh will guide young participants through new performative techniques that originate from traditional kung-fu and self defence routines. These classes will provide space for creativity and collaboration as traditional techniques merge with contemporary performance.
