Title: PYSICAL IMPRO — (6 hours) Lev­el B/English


Free your body and min­imise the reliance on dia­logue.
In this work­sop, we will work on var­i­ous tech­niques in order to open the blocks that will help you use your body and envi­ron­ment to devel­op phys­i­cal impro­vi­sa­tion. You will be guid­ed through exer­cis­es to learn to read the stage and work with music. You will also be intro­duced to sim­ple clown­ing exer­cis­es to help you not only lis­ten to your body and fol­low your phys­i­cal impuls­es but also find the com­e­dy and joy in that.

Tanine Dunais

is an Iran­ian impro­vis­er, cur­rent­ly liv­ing in the Nether­lands. She start­ed her improv jour­ney at Dubai’s Court­yard Play­house, and built her foun­da­tions with John­ston­ian for­mats such as Mae­stro and The­atre­s­ports. She’s for­ev­er in the hunt for oppor­tu­ni­ties to per­form in her native tongue, Per­sian, and to show­case more of her her­itage and cul­ture, on stage. Dur­ing her explo­rations, she fell in love with express­ing her­self with­out the use of spo­ken lan­guage.
Her pre­ferred modes of expres­sion revolve around phys­i­cal the­atre, clown­ing, buf­foon­ery, and pup­petry.
Recent­ly, she’s been dig­ging deep into her expe­ri­ences of per­form­ing as an expat, and is con­stant­ly work­ing to find ways to help fel­low impro­vis­ers bring their cul­tur­al and reli­gious her­itage to life, on stage.

Jed­er ken­nt sie, jed­er liebt sie. Kurz­for­mate sind „typ­isch” Improthe­ater und den­noch kann man sie nicht oft genug unter die Lupe nehmen. Kurz­for­mate geben uns Struk­tur, fordern uns her­aus und inspiri­eren. Jedes Struk­tur­spiel hat einen Grund, warum es existiert. Diese und andere Exis­ten­z­gründe wer­den wir gemein­sam erforschen und natür­lich: spie­len spie­len spie­len. Las­set die Short Games begin­nen!

Title: WARNING OF VERNÜNFTIGKEIT — (12 hours) : Lev­el C/English


Just because we live in a cul­ture that is try­ing to do the rea­son­able thing, does­n’t mean we have to rea­son­ably impro­vise. Just because our cul­ture is focused on prob­lem solv­ing, it does­n’t mean we have to do the same on stage. Just because we make “mis­takes” as impro­vis­ers don’t mean we need to pun­ish our­selves in front of the audi­ence. And just because impro­vi­sa­tion has tools does­n’t mean you have to fol­low them like rules.
In this work­shop we would focus on try­ing to be less rea­son­able and more dar­ing as impro­vis­ers. Dar­ing does not mean not pay­ing atten­tion, it should­n’t mean not lis­ten­ing or react­ing to your partner’s offers. What it means to me, is being dar­ing while using the pos­si­bil­i­ties that devel­op as we play, so our sto­ry can go some­where.
From my point of view, hes­i­ta­tion, vague­ness, and unclar­i­ty are big obsta­cles in impro­vi­sa­tion. We have to be clear with what­ev­er we are sug­gest­ing, we have to be bold and con­fi­dent even if we are not 100% sure what is going on, we have to take risks in order to make shit hap­pen!
This work­shop will give us effec­tive tools for clar­i­ty, bold­ness and the courage to cre­ate sto­ries and char­ac­ters big­ger than life.

Title: SURFING THE MOMENT — FROM PLAY TO STORY (12 hours) : Lev­el B‑C/English


To start with we will play games, fool around, all to get into a play­ful mood. After this, we will exper­i­ment and work on how to receive the first prompt as a present and hon­our it by let­ting it be the core of the com­ing nar­ra­tive? We will also explore using act­ing tech­niques to cre­ate char­ac­ters truth­ful­ly with­in their uni­verse, car­toon­ish, real­is­tic, or satire, what that moment calls for.
In the next part of the work­shop, we will address how to cre­ate char­ac­ter instinc­tive­ly and in the moment. And we will explore how we can stage these char­ac­ters sto­ries. We will also explore how we can tell the sto­ries from dif­fer­ent points of view. An exam­ple: A Pig-farmer tells his sto­ry, and then we hear what the pigs have to say.
In between, we will play and exchange expe­ri­ences.

All in har­mo­ny with his expe­ri­ences work­ing with Keith´s basic tech­niques and the­o­ries. Steen has over the years worked to find tech­niques that pre­pare you, not to be pre­pared.
