WORKSHOPS / WARSZTATY
ALL OF US - IMMERSIVE THEATRE
When does the performance start for the audience? When does it end? What will they go home with? Who has the power? In this workshop we will explore the connections that can be made between actors and the audience. In out traditional performances, those on stage tend to inform those off stage how to feel and react. What would it be like to create the performance with the audience and truly listen to them? What does the world around us have to say when we let it talk? How can we immerse the audience in an improvised theatre experience? This workshop will leave you rethinking the way you look at performances, audiences, and the relationship between them.10-16 students, RED TRAIL // SZLAK CZERWONY
MUSIC IS US
This is a workshop for everyone who wants to develop their skills in creating music in improv. In the workshop we will explore different possibilities to make music without actual instruments, using our voices and bodies. Let's try out different exercises and games of group listening, forming bands, creating different kind of sound sceneries and use all we learn by improvising scenes inspired by our work!10-16 students, RED TRAIL // SZLAK CZERWONY
