At BIF days (22nd to 25th of March) you can choose one of the three offered BIF days workshops (11 hours). You can see as many shows of the IMPRO as you like (also in the first festival days before the BIF days start). You participate in a panel-discussion about the European project Our Lives. You can join the Open Stage of all BIF-participants. You are invited to the closing party of the IMPRO.
All BIF days workshops are held in English, with a maximum of 12 participants each.
Basic skills in improvisation are necessary, preferably a minimum of two years of impro experience.
All workshops will take place at JugendKulturZentrum PUMPE, Lützowstr. 42, 10785 Berlin-Mitte.
***LET ME HEAR YOUR BODY TALK with Alenka Marinic***
When improvisers are asked for self-criticism, they often say »we talked too much in the scene«. Talking is often used to hide insecurities in the character development - so often we are tempted to keep the story going by an excessive use of words. »Let me hear your body talk« will bring our awareness back to the body. Together we will explore what we perceive, what we intrinsically know (in the body) and how we can use this knowledge to our advantage when improvising on stage. You will get to know the fundaments of physical theatre: rhythm, spatial awareness, gesture, breath, body language, levels of presence and - most importantly - how these fundaments can generate play! It is a workshop about what happens and is happening on the stage before words are needed, if we stop and listen!
»I really love impro because it is a celabration of horizontal arraignment instead of hierarchal relationships that we very commonly find in theatre. In impro there are no big writers and directors. There are only players who are playing their hearts out in front of and with the audience!« (Alenka Marinič)
