You will probably still be able to play that - WS 1

Language is powerful and we can use it to influence many things: the characters we play, the scenes we create, the worlds we create. Conscious, open, in discourse and always changing - a real challenge even in everyday life. And on the improv stage? What can we say and what not? What is political correctness and how many stereotypes are still in each of us? How do we deal with colleagues and viewers who have completely different boundaries than we do? 

How do we manage to convey to the audience what we stand for and what our opinion is? And still not lose the lightness? 

You will probably still be allowed to play that - together with Christl we will try, discuss, accept, without any blanket solution!

My name is Jones, Bridget Jones - WS 4 - SOLD OUT

British spy film, romantic Rosamunde Pilcher film adaptation or bloody horror. Allude to the typical clichés - we can all do it! But is there more to a sci-fi movie than talking aliens and robots?
And what happens in westerns when the duel is over and the horse has galloped past? In this workshop we'll put popular stage genres to the test and learn to create characters that can do more than just hold a gun. And we explore the common gender clichés in the genres. Woman and man. The feminine in the masculine, the masculine in the feminine. Maybe we'll play the sensitive artist, the homme fatal, the bridge commander, the passionate cult leader? How much does the genre and the “typical” roles it contains influence us? Can the wife be the sheriff and take a lover from the saloon? Together with Christl we will improvise some new mixtures and encounters - shaken and smeared!
