FRUIT CAKE AND CRAZY NUTS
CREATION WORKSHOP

The intensive creation workshop "Fruit Cake and Crazy Nuts" (5 days), based on my methodology "Art therapy for the development of the performing arts and personal growth" is an exploration of the clown, an invitation to investigate and discover your personal clown and the prosody of your body. This method will help participants learn about clown archetypes and improvisation techniques, revealing the tricks of the profession. The body is the "designated place", where humor, play and emotions are expressed rhythmically (prosody), creating a magical and poetic dialogue with the audience. It will start from an instinctual work, through experiential exercises and art therapy modules, to arrive at the staging of numbers created during improvisations. At the end of the 4-day itinerary, the artists will present a cabaret performance, originating from the work done during the entire seminar.

 

METHOD:

Warm-up exercises, meditations, experiential exercises, games on exclusion and self-exclusion. Meditations, improvisations and an Art-Therapy workshop, through which creating your charatcher (clothing, voice, attitude, biography).
