14 Jun Intro to Zen Acting – Summer intensive weekend workshop (Aug 25-26, 2018)
Instant Theatre Berlin is proud to present a new intensive summer weekend workshop in August aimed at exploring acting and performance from a different perspective.
In this 2-day course, we’ll be exploring and focusing on the inner life of the performer when she’s on stage. What if we could use constant focus on ourselves and on our reactions and become able to play every scene and every role? What if we could get constant guidance in our performance by just keeping track of our inner activity? This course is addressed to performers of background and any level who would like to make their stage acting more natural and consistent, letting the creativity flow freely without losing effectiveness in their performance. Intro to Zen Acting is also strongly recommended for people who want to confront their stage fears and get rid of any stiffness or unease once and for all.
Zen Acting is a new approach to acting developed by Instant Theatre Berlin, and its main purpose is to treat the acting discipline as a natural practice that starts from within. In Zen Acting we combine acting training exercises and self-awareness routines inspired by the Zen philosophy, allowing each performer to explore how inspiration and creativity work on stage, and how can we can play around with full awareness and control of our emotions.
This weekend workshop is an introductory course to the discipline. It consists of 8 hours of training (4h on Saturday / 4 hours on Sunday, 2-6pm), and takes place on August 25-26. (PS: Another weekend was planned but we had to postpone it for logistical reasons; participants were informed).
