Movement (BOOKED OUT)

Dive into the fascinating world of your body!

With targeted exercises, you will learn to know your body much better and to expand your movement vocabulary. Through playful partner games and body puzzles, you will explore the subtle facets of your body. You will learn to perceive your body in a better way and use it more consciously.

The body puzzles will challenge and inspire you to explore new movement possibilities. In a supportive environment, you will creatively unfold and strengthen your self-confidence in physical expression.

This workshop offers you the opportunity to connect with your body, appreciate it, and improvise in harmony with it. We create an atmosphere of exchange and mindfulness, where you can expand your body awareness in a playful and vibrant way. Together, we will uncover the potential of our bodies and find new ways to express ourselves through movement.
No prior experience is required – whether you already have experience with bodywork or are just embarking on this journey, this workshop is open to anyone who wants to develop more body awareness.

Tools for physical theatre (BOOKED OUT)

In our daily lives, our bodies are the first tool of communication we use: on the street, in the bus, in a shop. Even in the absence of words, we are able to interact with others and pick up on their emotions. Our bodies are able to convey messages before we even speak. While words can be used to deceive, our bodies can’t lie.

Physical theatre is a form of theatre that prioritizes the use of body as a primary storytelling tool, rather than relying just on words. Jacques Lecoq and E. Decroux were two important theatre educators who were interested in exploring the possibilities of the body for the stage. During the workshop, Andres will explore some exercises drawn from their work as well as the technique of mask theatre together with his participants.

Through various exercises and games you will explore tools such as: energy, breath, focus, action – reaction. This tools will help you to bring movement, posture and gesture on the first line and give your performance deepness and believability.

This workshop aims to provide some instruments to help you use your body to create characters, situations and narratives without relying on words. It is not about showing but about letting it be seen.

SourceWork (BOOKED OUT)

SourceWork and ViewPoints are systems of experiences that train up all the different aspects of a performer and enables the artist to deepen their ability to interpret and animate their roles. The main thrust of the work is preparing the performer to ‘enter the image’. This image can be understood as the end product of a personal impulse either from your inner or outer worlds.

In our life we are constantly using images to reference our lives. While we are keeping track of our outer world through our 5 senses we are also assessing responses within that become thoughts, feelings and ideas. When we are telling stories from our day or reminiscing, we are recalling these images and using text and gestures to describe these images.

In all the body disciplines listening is one of the most important aspects of the performer’s toolkit. As the body relaxes, listening improves and authentic personal responses are revealed. These responses are either repressed or expressed through movement and/or text.

The workshop will be divided into 2 sections:

  1. the internal, personal response to our impulses (solo work)
  2. responding to the outer world of each other and the space (influenced)  

Join us to explore and experiment together, deepening your  performing experience with timeless skills learned through the curriculums of SourceWork and ViewPoints.
