The Dance of Intentions - Oslo

From 18 sep. 09:00
To 21 sep. 15:30

In this masterclass you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself with Roberta Carreri.

The participants work on creating bodily and vocal actions, and on performing these actions with different qualities of energy. This takes place, among other things, through exercises in slow motion. And finally, the workshop focuses on voice training with the body as a sounding board and with the relationship between vocal and physical actions.

At this workshop, the focus is on the individual actor's presence in the room and in relation to the other actors on stage; on how one is present in the action one performs and at the same time ready to react.

We work with "in-intentions" (the starting point for actions) and with how to achieve dynamic immobility. The workshop also explores exercises with the eyes and the different energy qualities of the gaze. We will also track down the leading points, i.e. the points in the body where the leading impulse of a movement originates.

The purpose of the workshop is to convey the basis of an acting education that can help young actors to discover their "stage presence" by exploring a formalised stage behavior and to offer experienced actors a way to free themselves from automatisms and incorporated clichés.
