Lernziele / KompetenzenThe core of the work is learning approaches to physical and vocal techniques that provide students with the skills for individual research on the body and voice in training and performance. Research is the very nature of the acting process studied which then manifests itself in students' own investigation into acting. The MA in acting aims to train the artist to be independent through a program that gives the skills, confidence and methods to develop their own practice.
InhalteThe main focus of this workshop will be the dynamic body of the ensemble in relation to the individual performer. The ensemble will be discovered through exercises with common rhythm, spatial relations and movement improvisations. The physicality of the individual performer is based on the sensations of the body and dynamic physical practice guiding us towards the sensitivity of imagination, memories and feelings. We are looking for the character to arise from one’s own creative strength and inspiration. The actors presence will be awoken through exercises including work on the physical life, imagination, spatial awareness, impulses, focus, joy, dance, word/text, rhythm and song through receiving and giving support as a living, breathing, moving and sounding ensemble.
The workshop is directed towards practitioners with an interest and experience in theatre, music and/or dance.

The course will offer students hours of practical training each week, led by Anu Almagro, who is a member of the Song of the Goat company who will teach their own unique approach to actor training. This method, which approaches the performer in a holistic way, involves working from the body into voice, song and text work. It emphasis the flow between movement, rhythm and sound both within the individual and the ensemble, with the view to developing true partnership and support within this dynamic. Each of the company members will approach this from their own particular strength: the voice and its connection to imagination and deep personal song, working with physical impulses, text, presence and the state of readiness.
Each student will also have the opportunity for an individual tutorial.
