Workshop 2 – Composition space in Theatre

Sa. 18th of March 2023 16:00-22:30

Composition space in improv theatre

This workshop has already taken place in more than 12 different cities in Europe, Asia and America and will last about 6 hours.

The way we use space on stage has a direct and strong influence on what we convey as performers.

The aim of this workshop is to use space to enrich the visual aspect of our stories. We will play with concepts such as proportion, framing, balance, time and others.

By exploring how space is manipulated and used in two-dimensional images and paintings, we will discover new tools and learn how to change the way we play on stage.

This workshop will be accompanied by a series of images and videos showing how artists use space. Works by masters such as Goya, Picasso, Rembrand, Velazquez and Michelangelo will be used as reference to enhance our work on stage.

Sa. 18th of March 2023 16:00-22:30

Workshop 3 – All for One and One for All!

Su. 19th of march 2023 10:00 – 16:30

All for one and one for all improv

This famous line from “The four Musketeers” underlines the idea that improvisers can focus on building a story around a chosen protagonist.

Together we will learn how to build the story of a unique and true character and the world, challenges and changes he or she lives in.

We will focus on a linear narrative that revolves around the main character, exploring concepts such as narrative and human truth.

This workshop will give participants the opportunity to explore and try out different narrative tools.
