approaches to acting & devising

we will explore embodied approaches to acting and devising. Our point of departure will be either a piece of text or, perhaps, an image arising from the unconscious. the workshop will be playful, process driven, and eclectic, touching on improvisation, active imagination, mask, art practice, and somatic ways to engage with the unconscious and build a compassionate relationship with one’s creativity. It will be an opportunity to dive deep, develop your own practice, and embody themes arising from the creative unconscious.

please be aware of our early bird special offer for this workshop! you can apply for this offer up until the 24th of march 2024. after the 24th the regular workshop fee applies. applications are accepted up until one day before the workshops starts.
