Shifting Focus – the Actor and the Puppet

Datum: 22 - 24 Aug 2018

Tid: 10.00 - 16.00

Ort: Stockholm

A workshop aimed at actors and directors with puppet master Rene Baker, UK.

The workshop examines the task of the visible manipulator when humans and objects/puppets share the stage. Participants will experience different ways of using their body and mind to shift the focus between performer and object. They will discover how varying levels of presence and neutrality can be used for dramatic purpose; and practise guiding the spectator’s attention between human and object so that it is for dramaturgical reasons and not by accident that the audience looks at the actor or the object or both.

Obs! Workshopen hålls på engelska. Sista ansökningsdag 2 augusti.
