KENG-SAM’S WORKSHOPS

FINDING YOUR INNER CLOWN

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

LENGTH: 3 Hours

LEVEL: Advanced, Pro

CATEGORY: Dynamics, Scenic, Character, Development


In this workshop, we will use some techniques from the Laban Movement and from Claudia Notalle, a french clown from France who has explored clowning in a particular way. With her motto “Our body is our best ressource to create a story “, we will work on our inner clown to move and be moved together.

GROMELOT (GIBBERISH)

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

LENGTH: 3 Hours

LEVEL: All Levels

CATEGORY: Scenic, Character, Dynamics, Development, Structure


In this workshop, I take participants through some of the core principles of commedia del arte. We will explore how through your body language, and gibberish you can actually tell a story. We’ll look at areas like: How can I perform without talking my native language? How a movement or a facial expression can transform your story? How do we elaborate a scene without talking, but only with your body expression?

MUSICALITÉ

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

LENGTH: 3 Hours

LEVEL: All Levels

CATEGORY: Scenic, Character, Dynamics, Development, Structure, Music


How music can create a story or elaborate an outline? With music as an inspiration for improvisation, we will work on the connections possible between a musician (if possible) and a group of improvisers. This workshop aims to give the improviser resources to take to the stage, and another way to improvise through the help of a musician or selected music.
