For whom
For those who would like to enjoy the stage and find their authenticity as an actor. 

In this course you will learn to stand on stage with full conviction. You will act in improvisation exercises, using a combination of fun, spontaneity and technical skills. You will discover how to play scenes in which body and text come together in a natural way and therefore fascinate and move the audience. You will also discover your own style as a physical actor and experience how group improvisations on stage are enhanced by this individual way of acting. The classes are all about using the space theatrically, listening to your first physical impulses, acting fluently together as a group and making action/reaction/internalization part of your play. In addition, you will be introduced to special theatre masks in preparation for playing characters.

The last class of this course is a 4-hour class, held on the 14th of May. A small audience (friends and/or family) can attend the last part of the evening to watch you play in a variety of the most enjoyable improvisation and mask exercises from the course.
