Learn a proven method to become a more exciting and original performing artist.
The goal of the workshop is that you walk away with a set of principles and practical tools so that you can continue practising on your own, alone or with a group. To sustain and develop your creative genius as a performing artist.
Even though it is an introduction, there will be enough time to grasp all you need to spark a 'eureka!' moment – perhaps already during the workshop. Once you start "getting it", there's no limit to how much more you can "get". The work that we will touch upon is endless.
Here's the full scope:
1° Know your body and how to use it as movement, gesture and attitude;
2° develop your capacity to see and to feel, and how to express your experience and imagination to an audience;
3° use improvisation both as a tool of spontaneous composition and as free interpretation of given instructions;
4° create your own work as a theatre artist, alone and in collaboration with others.
On the first -short- day you will be introduced to five key exercises from the Seidenstein method for acting and creativity.
On the second -longer- day we will repeat these key exercises and apply the principles in a series of freestyle solo and duo improvisations.
That's it. Please join the party. We can accommodate a maximum of 16 participants.
