Improvise your Dreams

The one-hour theatre workshop runs under the theme "Dreams," a motif that has various characteristics in different cultures, but one that also reflects universal emotions such as joy, hope or fear. A broad term that can take concrete forms. These, individually so different, concrete forms shall be demonstrated by the participants of this workshop.

The workshop will start with a warm-up, with which the students become aware of their body language and with which they can try different forms of non-verbal communication. Thus they can get in contact in various kinds of ways and express themselves. The focus of this method will be to express different forms of emotions.

After this the individual dreams will be improvised – first in the sense of wishes, later in the sense of fears. What does the actor / actress feel? What is he/her hoping for? What is the actor  / actress scared of? What limits the dreams? While improvising the actors / actresses can chose between playing with partners or playing alone. Throughout the entire process all participants reflect their performances, their ideas and play with different variations of the same idea.
