Dance Theatre

FROM WITHIN”

Geared towards: Adults or youth (12 – 18 years)
Teachers: Tjarda van Straten and Nadîja Broekhart

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. To join this workshop you don’t need any dancing experience, what you do need is a bit of guts and willingness to move!

We are all able to move and dance, but what can you do with it and what does it accomplish when you use one movement in different ways.  You are the one that brings 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 being able to tell your story without using words…

During the workshops/lessons we will work on body awareness and exploring your own creativity. Through exercises in which your own input plays a major role, we will create various dance- and movement material. We will work in small groups and watch each others work. This contributes to becoming aware of what body language can accomplish. In addition we will work on optimizing usage of space, movement qualities and performing facing an audience.
