Cirkus Kus | New circus and pair acrobatics

29/03/2023 | 12:00-15:00 | DF JAMU | Room 105

We will be doing pair and group acrobatics. We will be working with our centres of gravity, balancing in pairs, building human pyramids, but also using various other acrobatic-movement principles (contact improvisation, dance acrobatics, ikar games, banquet, …). We will not only be working on correct techniques, but also on the creative approach to acrobatics, and acrobatics will become our artistic means of expression. You do not need a partner for the course. 

Líšeň Theatre: Shadow workshop

30/03/2023 | 12:00-14:00 | DF JAMU | Room 013

The Shadow Workshop is inspired by ancient oriental practices when shadow theatre was performed during the day – the audience watched the shadows created by sunlight in a dark cave. Instead of sunlight, we will be using artificial light in the dark room 013, and everyone will be creating puppets from paper, coloured plastic and natural materials based on their imagination. We do not provide any templates because we believe that everyone creates their best shadow puppet according to their own ideas and abilities.  

WORKSHOP | Creative Sources of a Performer | OPEN FOR OBSERVATION

29/03/2023 | 11:00-12:00 | Divadlo na Orlí

30/03/2023 | 11:00-12:00 | Divadlo na Orlí

31/03/2023 | 11:00-12:00 | Divadlo na Orlí

Andrej Kalinka | Milan Kozánek

The workshop focuses on the potential of the performer’s creative resources in the process of creation. One of the goals of the workshop will be to find the resources for the creative process that will allow performers to open paths to different approaches and unexplored contexts of the artistic material. The primary stimuli will come from the anatomy of movement and the body, from playing musical instruments, and from working with text, objects and materials.

The voice workshop | Lucie Matyášová

31/03/2023 | 11:00-15:30 | DF JAMU | Room 401

In this voice workshop, we will be focusing on our individual energies and body centers to find authentic resources and nourishment for our voice. Through exercises that connect us to the contents and themes of these centres, we will gradually discover our voices’ roots in deep resonance; we will discover the emotionality, playfulness and variety of our voices connected to our own inborn emotionality and vocal clarity, and thei softness and sensitivity. The work is inspired by the philosophy of the human chakra system.
