ACTION THEATER BERLIN
Month Long August Training 2011
with Sten Rudstrøm
Action Theater physical theater training is an improvisational body-based process used for the discovery of new forms of expression. Its main work mode is physical: the physical body and feelings that are contained inside. The training helps performers expand their physical forms and inhabit those forms with humanity. Through the practice of working solo and with partners, Action Theater develops a better understanding of ensemble architecture, the use of space and composition. In exercises, all action is broken down into shifts, transformations and/or development. These exercises help establish the balance between inner and outer awareness. They specifically limit areas of action and response so that students open to the unknown, break free of fear and embrace the unfamiliar. Action Theater includes sound/vocal work, language and movement.
In this 20-day training, we will work 5 hours a day, five days a week, for four weeks, developing the practice of improvisation and performance. The work will include detailed examination of three modes of change: shift, transform and develop. We will work with movement scores, sound scores and language scores as well as mixtures of each. Each day will include 4-hour practice sessions and 30-60 minutes of performing with personalized critique and direction as to how to improve one's performance skills. The course will conclude with a public performance.
