The Neutral Mask

3 days of mask work with Peter Sweet
9-11 July, 2021
Wilhelminenhofstr 91, 12459 Berlin

There are three masks: the one we think we are, the one we really are, and the one we have in common. – Jacques Lecoq (1921 – 1999)

What happens when you put on a mask that is “neutral”, that has no character at all?

A neutral mask is never neutral when it sits on the face of the player. Since it does not contain a dramatic facial expression, it acts like a magnifying glass for the inherent dramatic expression that is present in your own body. Continue reading “The Neutral Mask”

Collective Play

3 days of group work with Peter Sweet
6-8 August, 2021
Wilhelminenhofstr 91, 12459 Berlin

When you watch a group perform that is really in sync, it can seem like they have one brain and many brains at the same time. The individuals are able to follow their own impulses, yet the group supports every action that happens on stage. There seems to be no leader and many leaders. Continue reading “Collective Play”

Instead of Throws – Circular Object Manipulation

A weekend of object manipulation with Kathrin Wagner

There are just so many things to do in a life… so many methods, practices and techniques, so many exercises “to be done every day”, so many paths, each so beautiful. Especially today, with them all available in our pockets at the swipe of a finger, it’s quite easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of possibilities, Continue reading “Linking our Juggling to our Depths”
