Workshop Facts are feelings vol. 2


Νάνσυ Σταματοπούλου

The aim of this seminar is to study metamorphosis through physicality. Emphasizes improvisation on specific exercises and ways of releasing movement through kinetic phrases and improvisations. Rhythm and voice will also be studied in the context of exploring the experiential  and then the theatrical physicality.
The seminar is an illustration of the function of control and physical instinct and its purpose is to create physical, mental and emotional states through physical exercise. For this reason, the body is led to its maximum expressiveness and transformation through the exploration of boundaries and the abolition of any safety belt and standardization.
Participants are guided to learn to accept the information of their instinct, to find truth in their body and to communicate their personal way of movement and expression.

Leading & Following Workshop

This seminar / workshop is essentially a collection and exhibition of tools and practices aimed at a higher awareness of individual and group stage presence. With improvised methods we will cultivate ways of making complex decisions during the executive process and we will improve the sense of coordination. These methods create unique learning conditions, outside the usual teaching contexts and can be used in a wider range of approaches. The sensation of our body, through an accelerated state of motion, leads to a higher level of physical knowledge (consciousness) which often brings revolutionary results. This new concept is a crucial element that triggers new dynamics in the creative process.
This workshop focuses on empowering the personality, through an innovative perspective and emphasizing collaborative / group approaches and structured improvisation.

The seminar includes:

Leading & Following
Methods and practices of good grouping and collaboration in a team.
Individual (solo) work tools and practices.

Individual / personal integration tools and practices in a group show.
Watch & Talk
Learning about how to give and receive constructive and productive feedback.
Presentation & Documentation
At the end of the workshop there may be a presentation of the seminar materials.
