Improvisatie voor beginners

Dinsdag van 20:25-21:55 – met Laura

Zou je improvisatie of theatersport wel eens willen uitproberen? Lijkt het je leuk om elke week veel te lachen, veel te doen en ‘uit je hoofd’ te raken?

In deze cursus Improvisatie ga je nieuwe kanten van jezelf ontdekken. Ik geef al heel veel jaren les, en deelnemers geven aan altijd vol energie en een grote glimlach de lessen uit te lopen. Als je langer bezig bent, ga je ook merken dat je beter met druk kan omgaan, creatiever gaat denken en makkelijker presenteert.

Elke week werken we met een fijne groep mensen aan theater maken zonder plan. We doen dat met actieve oefeningen, en soms een vorm die je zou kunnen kennen uit De Lama’s of De Vloer Op.

Je zal verbaasd staan wat er ‘uit het niets’ voor prachtigs kan ontstaan. Je hoeft niet grappig te zijn, of een snelle denker, of lenig. Je hoeft alleen maar binnen te lopen.

De voertaal in de groep is Nederlands, maar het hoeft zeker niet je moedertaal te zijn. Toch onzeker? Geef ons een belletje, of kijk eens naar de cursus ‘Any-lingual & All-level improv’.

Dinsdag 22 sept. tot 15 dec (Presentatie in laatste les)
20:25 tot 21:55u
€ 195,- incl. BTW voor 12 lessen.
Al onze lessen zijn toegankelijk.
Locatie: Sportzaal – Huis van de Wijk de Meeuw (Motorwal 300, Amsterdam)

Any-lingual & all-level improv

Mondays from 19:00 to 20:30 – with Gael

Wanna do improv? Wil je improviseren? Tu veux essayer l’impro ? ¿Quieres improvisar?

This course is built to welcome anyone that wishes to do improv. Whatever your level or experience in improv is, even as a total beginner, the classes will explore how to play improvised theatre with a mix of levels. The theme of this semester is to perform in whichever language you want. Your native tongue isn’t English? Or Dutch? You’re welcome to bring your experience and history into this course! We want to enjoy improv through the lens of diversity of language to see it as a powerful tool instead of a barrier.

You will learn improv in a positive and supportive environment, using ways to create amazing stories without even understanding a word of what your partner says. This 12 classes course will be taught by Gael, based on his experience in physical and visual improv, music and staging. The second half of the year will provide a continuation of the work started together.

The only requirement to attend is to speak just a bit of English, French or Dutch. The class will be lead mostly in English.

For experienced improvisers

SOLD OUT — Ghost of Love – the love part — SOLD OUT

Tuesdays from 18:50 to 20:20 – with Laura

Love scenes are great to see but -even for experienced performers – difficult to play. I am here to tell you: it can be so much easier. By using your body, you can tell the entire story.

In this course we will use principles from dance, contact improvisation and physical theatre to get into your body and out of your head. We will focus on trust, body awareness, taking your time and comfortable intimacy.

We will work on a format I have directed at improv festivals all over the world: Ghost of Love. A show of multiple love stories: young, old, passionate, bored, budding, recovering, familiar and unusual. It is a beautiful, patient and entertaining format.

Though this workshop is for performers with (some) experience, you do not need to be an skilled mover: any body and any ability is welcome. Also: even though the topic is love scenes, rest assured that we will take great care of each other’s safety and boundaries. The class is a no-judgment space.

SOLD OUT — Visual and silent improvisation for Advanced Players — SOLD OUT

Mondays from 20:30 to 22:00 – with Gael

You already have some experience in improv but you want to explore your body more on stage? You have seen some improvised pieces (the Fraltons, Speechless, Just Play, etc.) and you would like to learn how to improvise with less to no words?

This course is for you! Built on Gael’s experience of speechless improv, you will explore the possibilities given when you stop talking and you focus on the visual informations. With the help of music as a support and inspiration source, you will learn how to produce a show with no words said, and still tell great stories full of emotion and adventure to your audience.

From using your body on stage to creating good space object work and thinking of your staging, this course for advanced improvisers will be taught in English. The second half of the year will continue the exploration of improv without words using soundeffects and other uses of the voice.
