Workshops Movement & Physical Theatre | Unusual Open Stage | March 15 | April 17 & 18 | 2015

****************************************************
Physical theatre is a form of theatre in which the performer tells a story through body language. It excludes spoken word and is very visually orientated. We all are familiar with movement, but what can you do with it and what does it accomplish when you use a single movement in different ways. You are the one that gives life to movement! No hocus pocus but applicable knowledge including useful tips en playful exercises will all be part of the lessons. This way you will learn how to move from within and will be able to tell your story excluding words… Starting point for exercises are contemporary, recognizable situations which will be blown up. 
During the workshops we will be working on body awareness. Through exercises in where your own input is key, we make short sketches. We will be working in small groups and will “show and tell” regularly. This contributes to becoming aware of what body language can achieve. In addition we will work on optimizing usage of space, movement qualities, improvisation and performing while facing an audience.

TEACHERS:
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 Broekhart is 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. In 2015 she will take courses at Ecole Internationale De Mime Corporel Dramatique (Paris | FR) and MimeCentre Koln (Koln | DE), to keep on developing and digging deeper into the grounds of physical theatre.
In 2012 she started sharing her knowledge by teaching workshops physical theatre & movement, object theatre and dance theatre combining forces with Tjarda van Straten, who is an inventive choreographer, dancer and member of HipSick Unsual Theatre.
Tjarda van Straten 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. At the moment they are working on a new production which can be expected around april 2015. You can stay updated by registering for the newsletter via http://www.hipsick.nl/content/contact
