Express Yourself! – Performing Arts Workshop
Finding your own artistic voice – Call it style, call it feeling, but call it yours…
The workshop is a short-term laboratory in which different theatre practices are examined and investigated in a simple exemplary way. We try to deal with an advanced understanding of theatre that goes beyond the borders of the conventional theatre (initialized) system and their aesthetics. Following the usual traditional theatre education, but questioning its fixed ideas and conventions to encourage innovative and subjective forms, we try to develop and implement new ideas or even think about possible new visions of theatre-making and thinking.
Participants are invited during this two-day experience of open-minded brainstorming and free tryouts, to define their core area and decide on their own subjects, topics, and issues they want to engage with.
The open form of the workshop and the possibility to individually shape the exercises gives participants an opportunity to argue and think about their personal approach, style, and aesthetics towards theatre.
Additionally, we will discuss administrative issues, like implementing your own artistic work as a professional freelance artist. The workshop does not only focus on Hungarian or Romanian theatre but also looks at trends of the international theatre scene.
My ambition is to encourage participants in their individual creativity, to motivate them to represent their unique work in order to take responsibility for their artistic authorship.
We hold something that no other living thing in this world has, we can think freely, we can imagine, we can do anything we want… and we can do art. Why not make it yours?
The workshop is suited for curious performing artists and students, who are motivated and want to take the challenge of searching, advancing and critically examining their theatre skills. In other words, it is for people who want to develop (or find) their own artistic language.
All artists with basic experience in the fields of acting, dance, puppetry or any other performing art form are welcome. Other essential requirements for the workshop are a high urge for independence, self-reflection, and collaborative working skills.
For the common base of the work, we need at least one exemplary monologue presented on stage. This will be the starting point for the discussions and the exercises, so make sure you have at least a 3-5 minute performance of a classical monologue.
The languages of the Workshop are Hungarian, Romanian and English / German.
