TANFOLYAMOK

THE ORGANIC ACTOR

Workshop under the leadership of Katharina Seyferth
from the International Centre Las Téoulères
in Kelebija at the headquarters of the Nyári Mozi Theatre Community




from 1st to 10th July, 2024

In this intensive 8 day workshop (arrival on the 1st of July afternoon and departure on the 10th in the morning), the goal is to unlock your potential by breaking free from conditioned patterns and accessing your true essence. Through a series of exercises, including energy activation, body release, rhythm exploration, and vocal vibration, you’ll discover a new level of presence, flexibility, and awareness.

On the last day of the workshop, we will present the results of the work process in an open class. It would be interesting to see artists from different fields coming together in one space. 

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORKSHOP

Step into a transformative journey of self-discovery and artistic exploration with our dynamic workshop focused on body, voice, and movement. Designed for actors, performers, aspiring artists, and anyone intrigued by the magic of the stage, this immersive experience invites you to break free from societal constraints and unlock your true essence.
Discover the power of your body, voice, and perception as you delve into a series of engaging exercises aimed at unleashing your organic energy and personal rhythm. Through playful yet profound activities, you’ll tap into your innermost memories, awaken your natural voice, and embrace the flow of your inner pulsations.
The workshop is grounded in a holistic approach that emphasizes:
• Activating and harnessing your energy
• Releasing physical and vocal blockades
• Exploring tempo and rhythm with precision and spontaneity
• Cultivating deep, natural breathing and vocal vibration
• Crafting individual actions within a supportive environment
As you embark on this journey, you’ll cultivate:
• Presence that radiates from within
• Suppleness and lightness in movement
• Heightened perception and concentration
• Inner and outer attentiveness to space, movement, and energy
Through vocal exercises, you’ll strengthen your respiratory muscles, soften the diaphragm, and uncover the intricate connection between breath, voice, and movement. Meanwhile, our focus on individual actions will empower you to create structured yet authentic expressions in natural settings.
Whether you’re a seasoned performer or just beginning your creative path, this workshop promises to ignite your passion and unlock your artistic potential.
