DANIEL’S WORKSHOPS

STAGE SPACE IN PICTORICAL TERMS

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

LENGTH: 3 Hours

LEVEL: Advanced

CATEGORY: Dynamics


Live performance takes place in a three-dimensional space. The way we approach this has a direct and strong effect on what we communicate as performers. By exploring ways in which space is manipulated and expressed in pictures, images, and other two-dimensional representations, we will develop new tools to play and transform the way we address the stage.

SPACE: During this workshop, participants are able to explore the use of space in different ways. It is essential that the space we work in is clear, clean and holds the capacity for the participants to more around freely.

PLAYFULLNESS

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

LENGTH: 3 Hours

LEVEL: Intermediate

CATEGORY: Dynamics


Anything is possible if it is within a game. In a friendly and secure atmosphere the participants will look for ways to unleash themselves into a world of endless opportunities within the act of play. They will find the pleasure in taking risks, finding ways of raising the stakes in a playful way.

WHERE SCENES COME FROM

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

LENGTH: 3 Hours

LEVEL: All Levels

CATEGORY: Structure


After we get a suggestion or an impulse we jump on the stage to create scenes in the moment. How did that scene come to be? What were the ingredients that led to this? This workshop explores ways in which scenes come together, and the stories that inspired them.

FEAR AS A FRIEND

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

LENGTH: 3 Hours

LEVEL: Advanced

CATEGORY: Dynamics


Surveys about fears commonly show stage fright at the top of the list, in some cases even more than the fear of death. This emotion, usually seen as negative and unpleasant is there for a reason. How can we get to know it? Can we embrace it? Can we be friends with it? And most importantly, can we learn how to use it?

Twelve is the best number of participants to work with.
