Improvisation Training on Fridays
Weekly Improvisation Trainings
Putting yourself on stage without knowing one single line, without having a character, without any information about what you should do, scares the sh.. out of you. Learning to use this fear, as a positiv useful energy and turn it into power, is the aim of this Improvisation class. Training to set yourself free from expectations, learning to be brave enough to act before you think, experiencing to fail and learn to trust your instincts. All these things are the very basis of the possibility to set yourself free as an actor and step into your own power and art.

Scene Study Class
The Scene Work Class takes place this march and april. Based on Meisner Repetition, we work on exercises like Knock on the Door, Emotional Preparation, Moment Before. All exercises together built a fundament for living truthfully under imaginary circumstances. We will focus on working with text, characters and circumstances in a free, authentic and creative way, not being reduced to prefabricated reaction-pattern.
The class will be supported by actress Annedore Kleist who is also a coach in the Alexander Technique. This technique helps to recognize and stop unnecessary tension. We learn to stay out of the way, so that something different, new can happen instead. The manner how we move and do things becomes light and free. We start to act in a state of tranquility and heightened presence.
max. 6 participants
Next class takes place in march/april and is already fully booked.
