Just like every year, New Circus Weekend offers a Circus Education program for performing artists. This year's teachers are professionals who will also be seen on stage in the festival's performances.
New Circus Weekend’18: EDUCATION PROGRAM
Angela Wand & Stephen Rappapor (Sweden/USA)
INTUITION IN ACTION workshop
4 – 6 September | 10.00 – 14.00 Studio III | 30 €
The workshop becomes a framework for the unraveling of an imaginal choice that leads to the in depth research and development of characters and stories. Participants are encouraged to allow, acknowledge and accept, the presentation of material that comes up out of the unknown... The Other Side. The ultimate objective is for the participant to build greater trust in their intuition, impulses, imaginations, ideas in their innate creativity.
Thomas Monckton (New Zeland)
PHYSICAL ARTICULATION FOR COMEDY
6 September | 11.00 – 16.00 (including 1 hour break)
Studio II | 15 €
Physical Articulation for Comedy involves body isolation, contemporary mime, applied mask technique (no mask), mimicry, object manipulation, and contextual improvisations. This
introduction to physical theatre movement technique concentrates on the articulation of the body and interactions with each other and objects in context with movement and space to create clear non-text comical narratives and expressions. Participants will learn how to isolate movements, use personal eccentricities to a comical advantage, and how to create and break rhythm in order to create laughter.
Nanda Suc and Federico Robledo (France)
WORKSHOP BASED ON COW LOVE PERFORMANCE
7- 8 September, 10.00 – 12.00
Studio III | 20 €
We always work with the company's artistic approach: here with the show COW LOVE.
The body in movement, humor (the second-degree, the self-mockery) and music are the main pillars of our work. We are looking for letting go, laughter and bodily commitment.
For this purpose, we promote the spontaneity of gestures and attitudes in order to bring out the personalities of each one and take out codes that we know and that force us.
