workshop series with Cat Gerrard and Adi Weinberg




Dramaturgy in Movement
– with Cat Gerrard & Adi Weinberg
Saturday 30 September & Sunday 1 October 2023 | 10:00 – 17:00

Join us in an exploration of the world of the dramaturg: the one in a creative process who listens to what wants to happen next. We will guide you through a movement research practice working with paintings as a starting point, through which we can experience some of the key principles of the dramaturg: embodied listening, guiding the process and storytelling in space.


Polyphonies of Story
– with Cat Gerrard
Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 October 2023 | 10:00 – 17:00

This workshop is a dive into stories as multiplicitous assemblages of beings and voices. We will work with fairy tale and myth to see how we can unmute the voices that have been silenced by the Hero story. To find different ways to tell a kind of polyphonic story. We will explore the craft and research of embodied storytelling: deepening the connection with breath, voice and imagination through an exploration of verbal and non-verbal telling.

Materials & Objects: Puppetry as Reciprocity
– with Cat Gerrard & Adi Weinberg
Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 November 2023 | 10:00 – 17:00

This workshop is a playful investigation into reciprocity with and listening to materials and objects. We will open the senses and connect more deeply to our bodies in order to activate the poetic and imaginary body and to deepen our embodied listening. We will explore techniques of puppeteering as listening: to how we might allow the material/object to become a subject. We will investigate ways to bring our subjects alive through our bodies, in the space and see what stories they might like to tell us. We will work with movement, larval masks and, of course, with objects and materials.

Cat Gerrard (she/her; GB/DE) is a storyteller, dramaturg, puppeteer and facilitator from the UK, based in Berlin. She trained in acting at Drama Studio London and later in collaborative performance-making at LISPA (now Arthaus Berlin). Cat’s work is multi-disciplinary and always created in an intuitive, collaborative, devised process. At the heart of Cat’s work is story – from the personal to the mythic, the individual to the collective. She circles around how we embody story, how we can develop a metaphorical kind of thinking, experiencing and transmission of artistic work. As a puppeteer, Cat is most proud of being one of the core creators/devisors and puppeteers for Theatre Témoin's show The Fantasist, which sold out the Edinburgh Fringe two years in a row and toured extensively around the UK and Ireland. As a dramaturg – primarily in theatre and dance – and facilitator, Cat’s work seeks to integrate the various elements of a process: to include the dynamics and interplay between the personal, interpersonal and transpersonal elements that are in each creative process. Cat mentors, curates and teaches various workshops (both online and off) and is a regular teacher at Arthaus Berlin and Cours Florent, Berlin.

Adi Weinberg (she/her; IL/PL/DE) is a dancer, choreographer and Gaga teacher.

She has worked with many choreographers and institutions, including: Andrea Costanzo Martini, Nadar Rosano, Efrat Rubin, Rachel Erdos, Noa Zuk, Aviv Eveguy, Shimrit Golan, Agnieszka Glińska, Fresco Dance Company, the Israeli Opera, and the Polish National Opera.

In 2017 she was awarded a grant from Mifal HaPais Council for the Culture and Arts for developing her choreography. In 2022 she took part in the DiR choreographic residency program at fabrik Potsdam where she later premiered her new creation If The Bull Won’t Come.
