International Summer School 2020

15 July - 09 August 2019

Introduction

 

We are pleased to announce details of our regular international summer school program for 2020, which will take place at the EDEN studios in Berlin. The two-week arthaus.berlin Summer School is followed by the two-week Summer Retreat given by the Thomas Prattki Centre for Integral Movement and Performance Studies.

You can choose which workshops to take part in, and each of the workshops gives you an insight into different aspects of our movement-based pedagogy for performing arts practitioners interested in creating their own work. Whether you are a performer, director, writer for the stage, or a practitioner with a different artistic background – if you are interested in creating original work within a collaborative setting, we hope to offer you an environment for creative practice and encounters with fellow artists from around the world.

The Poetic Body

10:00 – 13:00 ( inclusive of a 15 min break )

The workshop offers participants a practice-based approach to the principle of Embodiment and its function in the creative process. Starting with the embodiment of the movements in Wild Nature followed by an exploration of music, painting and poetry participants are invited to explore and create the stories rooted in their body waiting to be told.
Workshop Leader : Cat Gerrard

The Practice of Embodiment

14.30 – 17.30 ( inclusive of a 15 min break )

The workshop takes the city of Berlin as a point of departure for a deeper exploration of the practice of Embodiment as the dynamic relationship between the human body and the surrounding environment. Participants will be invited to “drift” in the city and take their somatic experiences as a point of departure for the creation of original work.
Workshop Leader : Ariel Gutierrez

Both week 1 and week 2 offer a good introduction to our full-time certificate or Masters Program in Devising Theatre and Performance.

Masks of Life

The workshop introduces participants to 4 fundamental masks and their archetypal function  : Neutral Mask, Character Masks, Buffons and the Red Nose. Each day a different mask is explored, giving participants an opportunity to discover through movement and improvisation the dramatic qualities of each mask and how they shape a creative writing process.
