Verrückte und Verliebte (15-20J)
Shakespeare somewhat different
Have you ever been really mad, angry or tainted? Or utterly passionate and really in love? Strong emotions and serious conflicts are actually commonplace, but what we do in this Atelier is not everyday life. We will exaggerate – and really overdo it. We re-write the texts of Shakespeare and explore their archetypical figures in a physical way and use them as models/templates for great emotions and gestures. Using classical theatre elements, we will work together to find a strong physical expression in the art of acting. We are as passionate as Romeo or Juliet, as evil as Lady Macbeth, as crazy as Hamlet, as desperate as King Lear, as insecure as Othello, or tainted as Richard III.
