Physical Character Creation

In this workshop participants will explore different techniques to create and develop characters through a physical approach to acting. Through physicality and voice exercises including the study of animal characteristics, elements and through observation of everyday life and analysis of body gesture and human behaviours, participants will have an opportunity to devise characters and perform them in improvised scenes.

Physical Theatre & Storytelling

Storytelling is the art to create, through words, gestures and voice modulation,
a story in front of an audience.

The workshop explores the basic techniques of the storytelling from the perspective of the physical theatre, in order to enrich the physical vocabulary and the actor’s scenic presence and to improve his stage sensibility.

During the two days you will be provided with tools useful to create a tale by exploring the techniques of different language of gesture, through improvisation, timing, individual and group exercises

Programme
- Physical Preparation: body and movement training focused on the conscious, dynamic use of the body as the actor’s tool.
- The body in an empty space as a storyteller; the illusion of space, the emotions and atmospheres, the objects, and the characters.
- To make visible the invisible
- The movie narrative techniques and devices and the modern visual language: real time, slow motion, fast motion, ellipses, flashback, fade-out, cuts, replay, close-ups, long-shots, zoom.
- Gesture languages: white pantomime, figurative mime, cartoon mime, storytelling mime
- Great Stories in small spaces: Storytelling on the "Tréteau".

* The "Tréteau" was the small trestle stage, a conveyable platform that the itinerant players of Commedia dell'Arte set up in the market squares where they performed, in competition with all the sellers who shouted to sell their goods.

Target group: The workshop is for performers, with or without experience in Physical Theatre, who want to develop themselves further as actors-authors and for participants who want to explore the world of physical theatre, movement and performance.

The Neutral Mask

It was introduced for the first time in the pedagogy of theatre at the Theatre School of the Théâtre du Vieux-Colombier of Jacques Copeau and Suzanne Bing, at the beginning of the last century and later developed by Jacques Lecoq. The Neutral Mask is a tool for the actor's training.

It explores a new level of expression, a way of communication through gesture and the organization of movement in space. With the Neutral Mask, the actor explores the state of neutrality before any action, a state of receptiveness to everything around him. Free from dramatic expression, it is based on the state of calm, of availability, curiosity to the world. With no inner conflict, the actor's body reaches a state of silence and presence, available to the theatrical space.


The Neutral Mask focuses on the creative attitude of the whole body and increases the level of tension of the body.

The Neutral Mask enables the actors to discover the essential gesture and the economy of movement as well as to reach a higher control on their body in movement and their presence on stage.

Target group: The workshop is for experienced performers, actors and dancers who are interested in deepening their knowledge and for participants who are new to the work and would like to explore physical theatre.

For the training is requested to wear neutral black clothes with no embles or logos and to work barefooted or with non-slip socks.

Date: Saturday 4 & Sunday 5 February 2017
Time:          from 10am to 4pm
Fee:  145€/reduced 125€
Venue:  Atelier für physisches Theater, Urbanstraße 116, 10967 Berlin

 


The Comical Body

„The comic is strictly a human phenomenon. A landscape cannot be a source of laughter, and when humans make fun of animals, it is often because they recognize some human behaviour in them. Man is not only a being that can laugh, but also a being that is a source of laughter.“ Henri Bergson

What makes us laugh? What do we laugh at? What makes an action, a body dynamic or funny? The comic as a strange alchemy between creativity, technique and movement mechanisms. The workshop is an intensive journey into the rules of comedy and the creation of comical, absurd, humorous bodies à la Jacques Tati.

Content: the laughing body / study of the movements of animals / the physicality of the comedy/ the development of a comical body through the analysis of movements, walks and attitudes/ the comical gesture / the search for the costume / study of the rhythms, tempos and counter tempo of comedy.

Target group: no specific or previous experience in Physical Theatre is requested. Premises are openness to life, movement, creativity, generosity in the play, joyfulness to experimentation.

For the training it is requested that you wear comfortable clothing that allows freedom of movement. For the creation of a comical body, please bring various clothing and accessories: pants, skirts, jackets, hats, shoes, bags, glasses, etc.

Date: Saturday 4 & Sunday 5 March 2017
Time: from 10am to 4pm
Fee: 145€/reduced 125 €
Venue:  Atelier für physisches Theater, Urbanstraße 116, 10967 Berlin
