Workshop Movement & Physical Theatre | "Actions Speak Louder Than Words" part I | The Hague (NL)

Saturday, September 21, 2013


This is the first of a series of open workshops movement and physical theatre and is geared towards curious beginning and intermediate movers/dancers and performers who want to explore new grounds or dig deeper into the mechanics to step out of their comfort zone. We will focus on body awareness & language, stability and mobility, movement qualities, improvisation, flow, creativity and dynamic presence. All will be taught with a magic mix of solid knowledge and fun exercises. Inspired by their own studies in movement, dance and theatre, Tjarda & Nadîja will challenge you to expand your territory to another level.

Nadîja & Tjarda crossed paths in 2007 and have been inspiring each other ever since. Both having their own discipline they started to work together within HipSick Unusual Theatre to combine their skills.
Nadîja is the founder and creative director of HipSick Unusual Theatre and has been studying her own personal mix of performance skills by attending various different courses such as mime & physical theatre, movement expression and clowning to create her own uncommon style of performance art & visual theatre.
Tjarda has been a globetrotting self-employed world fusion dancer and teacher for years and is the creative director of The Uzumé Dance Company and The Amano Project. She has a background in many genres of dance & movement expression with a main focus on modern for the last years to fuse into her dance with her natural creativity. Tjarda is currently studying at the Laban Institute of Movement Studies in New York & Agape Centrum Belgium to become a Certified Laban Movement Analyst.

HipSick Unusual Theatre has been performing at many events with their own shows and are a well sought after group for special themed performances. In 2012 HipSick was spotted and picked up by renowned street theatre professionals at Chalon de la Rue (FR), which gave them an extra boost for the future. Their most recent work can be seen this summer at Festival Spoffin (NL) and at.tension (DE).
