from inside to outside / physical theatre workshop

this workshop is suitable for movers and theatre lovers of all levels and backgrounds. i want to encourage curiosity and interest in detail, connection and risk-taking to grow as a person and group, and explore new terrain as a performer, using everything that we have as a tool for expression and performance: body, voice, imagination, experiences, feelings, our background and knowledge, dreams and visions, as well as working with objects and the space. we start the class by opening our channels of consciousness, meeting everything that is inside and outside of us. through sensing our body in its entirety, we give attention to the physical, instinctive, and emotional body. by awakening our voice, we establish a raised awareness of our breath. through experimenting with all of these elements and playing with changes in rhythm, dynamic, intention, tension and the connection to our bodies and movement, we aim to discover new facets of our persona. we constantly step out of our comfort zone through playfulness, aim for surprise and immerse ourselves in the work of physical theatre. by feeling and moving as different characters, we bring them to life and continuously create new extensions of ourselves.
