DanceAbility Finland ja Kynnys ry organizes a movement-based workshop THE ELEMENTS.
Friday 2.9 at 4.30-8.30 pm
Sat 3.9 at 1-5 pm
Kynnys ry´s Pantterisali, Siltasaarenkatu 4 5th floor, Helsinki
This workshop aims to explore human movement and movement dynamics of the everyday reality surrounding us all. The nature of movement is neutral; a cloud passes through the sky, a leaf vibrates in the wind, a wheel rolls or a hand sways... Our world is full of movement!
The workshop is based on movement and physical exercises. During the workshop we explore our personal and unique ways of moving. We also investigate how to transfer the dynamics of the elements of the nature to a human body and how to use these dynamics when performing or creating a character.
Anyone who feels inspired by the theme is warmly welcome to join the workshop. All the physical exercises can be adapted according to the requirements of the participant. The workshop is suitable for beginners as well as people with former experience. The most important thing is your passion for performing arts and/or urge to move!
- Awareness of the body in space
- Elements of the nature (earth, water, fire, air) and how to use them as amaterial or tool for performing/creating a character
(- If the time allows: Improvisation and character work)
The workshop is led by a finnish theatre-maker and drama instructor Helena Leminen. She is currently studying movement-based theatre, masks and clown in Florence, Italy.
Min 7, max 20 persons.
40 e (with 7 persons). N.B. The fee will be reduced if there are more participants.
