The following focal points, which develop vividly in the work of Familie Flöz, will be the subject of the "Performing" workshop:
The mask is a complex yet simple instrument. Its contradictions stand for the paradox of the theatre itself.
The mask leads us quickly to the roots of theatre and its most important elements: Rhythm - space - movement.
Character and scene
The focus is on the practical invention and exploration of a self-created character: its basic energy and rhythm, its gait and breath, its basic character traits, the counter-figure. By clarifying and strengthening the character, it is possible to find themes and scenes - also in connection with other characters.
Development of a play
How is scenic material created from an improvisation? How do I find a theme? How do you build a scene?
There is no recipe for the development of scenes or plays. The collective development process is always a new challenge for an ensemble.
From our experience we will give practical suggestions for the development of a character, a scene and also give impulses on how an own piece can be created.
Tuning movement / Senses
The tuned mover is an energetic and organic movement training with elements of the Alexander Technique. The work enables access to higher levels of spatial-energetic consciousness and develops a greater sensitivity to intense physicality. We approach movement through dance and stimulate personal creative potential through improvisation. A gentle strength and powerful gentleness in the way we move will redefine how we deal with our imagination, with music, with space.
Rhythm, tension, space and imagination are decisive parameters for every performer. The neutral mask is a very useful and instructive tool to re-experience, train or refine the process of "embodying".
