Workshop auf Englisch Workshop in English

The stage wants to make you understand that judgment and fears still exist, because for years we believed that the RULES would protect us. Instead, they only put us in a comfortable situation that deludes us. This workshop talks about how to kill all our certainties, rejecting a proposal, not entering the scene, messing with your brain and entering the scene without really knowing why, starting from the end, starting with a question... because the RULES in improvisation do not exist!!

Tiziano Storti is a professional actor and improv player. He started at 18. He plays, sings, raps, plays buskers, his love life is like Improvisation!

Ryan draws on sources from theater, improv, stand-up comedy, storytelling, hop-hop and more to help you unlock your power as an improviser. Expect a range of exercises and warm-yet-direct feedback in the service of leveling you and your scene-work up to faster flow, greater range and – perhaps most importantly – more fun

In this workshop we will be searching how to create dialogues and scenes from nothing. Where should we look for the inspiration? How can we use our daily life as a starting point? How can we be connected on stage and leave the stress behind us in order to have common adventures and fun together? Where am I ? Who am I ? What is my point of view ? Is it me on the stage or someone else ? Lets find out together.

Workshop auf Englisch Workshop in English

Having a strong group means you've created a safe space where players can be vulnerable and feel assertive enough to give feedback. Feedback should be to the point, specific and open to dialogue. Not easy, and the last thing an improv group normally trains. This workshop focuses on giving honest feedback, be it after a show or during practice. It is a mix of theory and practical exercises. The handouts will enable you to take this to your groups and use it to build an open communication culture together.

Workshop auf Englisch Workshop in English

A hero who wants something will act to achieve it. Will fight for it. A great want brings conflict and drama, it is a driving force for character and plot. But what makes a great want? In this workshop, you will be provided with simple yet effective tools to craft compelling and impactful character goals and desires. They will be especially useful for long-form players who aim to tell elaborate stories but will be helpful for every kind of improviser.

Mariusz Ciechoński

Warsaw-based improviser with a decade of experience. Member of a science fiction themed group called Jetpunk. On stage, he loves telling compelling stories and breaking the fourth wall. For the last 9 years, he has been earning a living with his storytelling skills – previously as a journalist, and now as a writer and narrative designer for computer RPG games. In his free time enjoys all the nerdy stuff such as playing board games, video games, tabletop RPGs, painting minis, and reading comics.

We will work on the creation of a luminous space with lanterns, basing our improvisations on choral creation techniques, actively engaging with the body and adding or subtracting light to the scene. The organic lighting will allow us to focus on the discovery of a new and broad poetic language, being able to work descriptions from the literalness of what we illuminate to the most suggestive and surreal images.

Sata García, María Rámis & Claudia Bernabé

We met at Fine Arts University and have since experimented with improv, participated in jams and productions, and performed both in Spain and internationally. We created, along with 4 more improvisers, the feminist collective "La Otra Escena", and together with another 7 international improvisers, the Feminist Pedagogical Laboratory. Our goal as workshop leaders is to achieve a save and supportive space to be able to express ourselves freely while being aware of what we are creating and why.

Having a clear vision of your environment, the objects and furniture that are around, and the size and weight of the props you use, is a helpful friend to make your stories more true to you, your partners and the audience. In this workshop we will train our bodies to realistically play in our imaginary environments, to make them more visible to us and the audience. FInding inspiration from Lecoq's work, clown, and commedia dell'arte. Let's take your mime in hand!

We will work on how we can create the space in which our characters can live in and interact with. Also we can learn how that space influences our decision making in a inprov scene. By being aware of how we can use our body and imagination we can gain more clarity in conveying the ideas in our minds to our scene partners and the audience.

Workshop auf Englisch Workshop in English

Actors on an improv stage can’t work as individuals. They must work as a well-oiled machine, as one organism, as being the tentacles of the same octopus, each having a brain of its own, but uses it in combination and harmony with the rest. In order to achieve that, we need to work on trust, communication, connection and support. That’s exactly what we’re going to do during this course. Improv is easier when we share it with people we trust.

In improvised theater we often just scratch the surface of the relationships and miss the true potential of the scene. In this workshop we’ll encourage you to dig deeper both within yourself and the collaboration with your scene partner. Through honesty, bravery and active listening we will work towards putting the human experience on stage. We’ll work with subtext, connection, physicality and acting techniques to bring the audience real characters, real relationships and real stories.
