The Open Space
Weekend workshop of physical, dance, devised and laboratory theatre with Sanja Krsmanovic Tasic.
The workshop reveals the process of devising theatre and dance by exploring the rich world of our imagination, dreams and stories. We will embark on a personal quest of discovering the possibilities of our bodies and voice, researching movement and actions, sounds and songs, and the way they can be put in a performance context.
The workshop is also intended in developing our spiritual and grounded presence, and our awareness and focus. We will work on developing personal and group training, body and voice exercises and researching group dynamics and the concepts of „ togetherness“ and „ecology of the soul“.
The workshop is based on individual skills and abilities, accessible to all: ones who have never tried working with their body and voice, to professional dancers, actors, directors, choreographers, dance and drama teachers.
