Die drei Künstler des Mamaza Ensembles Frances Chiaverini, Katja Cheraneva und Fabrice Mazliah werden diese Woche einen interessanten Workshop passend zu Ihrem Stück “In Act and Thought” anbieten. Tänzer, Schauspieler und Interessierte sind herzlich willkommen!

In Act and Thought

The workshop we would like to offer proposes a creative atmosphere in which we would engage in various exercises focusing on the production of real and imagined movements, How can one generate movement through the act of thinking and the thinking process through the act of moving.
Based on some of the principals and strategies used during the creation of the stage work “In Act and Thought” this workshop will give the opportunity to experience ways of combining movement with language, expanding details into complex explanations, being poetic.
