THE PLAY, SPONTANEITY AND MASK

3 months intensive workshop.

This module runs from 5. September till 2. December 2022. The module will includes the basic developmental classes upon which all the succeeding studies are based: Awareness through movement, the play, mime, the importance of mask play in the development of the actor, mask making, and acrobatics. This module ends with a mask performance resulting from the study of many different masks each with their specific importance to the actor.

Masks teach the student awareness and control of the movement and gesture. The masks demand that the student becomes aware of the essential gestures as well as aware of those not essential and thus distracting. The mask enlarges the performer to a higher level of projection and playing. The module includes an intensive one-week mask making workshop with master mask makers gives the students experience designing and constructing their own mask.

This is an exciting and intense three-month study that will profoundly develop those wanting to work in theatre and expand the skills of those already involved in theatre.

The modul end with a mask performances.

School hours will be from Monday till Friday from 9 -16. Beside this there will be weekly group assignments and individually home work.

Spring module 2023

Storytelling
The students will discover the fundamental nature of theatre, telling stories whether literary and verbal or gestural and non-verbal. By telling stories, the students learn to connect in a profound way with the public and develop the sensitivity necessary to hold the audience attention and take them on a journey through the story. Everyone loves a charming story, and in this section of study the students discover their own unique charm while creating their own stories. This style of telling stories draws on the student’s creativity physically building images using movement, pantomime, acrobatics, and voice working individually and in groups. Many theatre groups have launched their careers in this style.
The Clown – the art of failing
As the students encounter the phenomena of the clown, they develop a freedom of play while discovering their comic character, their unique way of making people laugh. Working with the solitude of the clown provides them a sense of being centered in themselves on stage and in touch with their immediate circumstances. They develop the ability to play with the surprises that invariably occur during performances. Working with the naiveté of the clown exposes each student to the basic human condition and their own vulnerability. They discover that their personal vulnerability is what makes them interesting on stage. During this study, the students will have several opportunities to perform their clown numbers and shows with diverse audiences in Denmark and abroad.
This is an exciting and intense three-month study that will profoundly develop those wanting to work in theatre and expand the skills of those already involved in theatre.
