In Emotion

Transdisciplinary Theater Workshop for artists and other interested persons in Witten (NRW)

This workshop is fully dedicated to Samuel's specialty: working with real emotions. We will devote ourselves primarily to the basic emotions in order to finally approach even more complex emotional states. In contrast to many others in this field, the techniques practiced do not rely on the personal life story of the actors, but take their starting point in working directly with body and consciousness. Exercises from transdisciplinary body theater, which were developed by Samuel himself in the course of his research, will structure the workshop. They will also give us a taste of how authentically experienced emotions can become a valuable tool of artistic expression. All the same, the workshop is explicitly open to people without artistic ambitions. More information about Samuel's work with emotions can be found in his biography.

 

Participants with and without experience in this field or in the field of theater are welcome. During this workshop, they can get to know working with authentic emotions or deepen their experience and refine the application in detail. The workshop is a module of the research and study cycle "The Poetry of Silence". It can be visited as part of it, but also independently.

 

Contents are among others

• Physiology of emotions

• Silence as a way to authentic emotion

• Beyond emotion

• Minimalism in emotional expression

• Induction (emotional journey)
• Emotions in movement and communication

 

 

               

 

Teacher: Samuel Núñez is a theater director and lecturer with a focus on physical theater, transdisciplinary theater, theater anthropology and emotional expression. For over 25 years he has been researching and developing techniques for artistic education and staging. Among other things, his focus is on methods that authentically connect artists with their own creativity, their teammates and those who experience their art. Since this work has proved to be valuable not only in the artistic field, but for the whole being, he also likes to work with people without artistic ambitions. Currently he is mainly active in Barcelona, Berlin and the cologne area. Click here for his detailed biography.

Performance Project GODOT in Berlin - acting & theatre workshop with Samuel Núñez

 

GODOT / #waiting

Performance Project in Berlin based on Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett

Are we waiting? And if so, what for - and how?

Do we have any time left to wait?

And what if we just stopped waiting?

 

During four weeks of preparation and three days of intensive work on site the group will elaborate an approximately half-our performance based on the play Waiting for Godot, which will be publicly shown at TATWERK Berlin on Saturday night. We will play with styles and forms such as realism, surrealism, expressionism, physical theatre and butoh and bring them together in a transdisciplinary context.

 

The preparatory, non-local, work on the performance will start one month before the Berlin workshop, so we ask for early registration (until 22.3.2019). During this month, Samuel will lead an active exploration of the basic text and, will work with the group on the concept and first ideas for staging.

 

Methodische Schwerpunkte:

• Installation, Body Art

• Dramatic improvisation and composition with and without text

• Physical communication / dramaturgy in movement

• Choreography

Physical Theatre Workshop in Cologne / Köln, December 2018

 

The Poetry of Movement

Physical Theatre Workshop in Köln (Cologne/Germany)

During this workshop we will explore the potential of the moving body as an instrument of artistic expression. Using transdisciplinary physical theatre tools and exercises, we can experience movement and silence as sources of creativity. When we dive into the present moment, listening deeply to our body, poetry of movement can arise in a authentical and unique way.

 

We will work with

• Organic Movement

• Flow of Movement

• Butoh

• Minimalism and dramaturgy in motion

 

This workshop is open to all, with and without experience. The workshop forms part of the cicle "The Poetry of Silence". Anyhow, you can participate independently of an interest in the cicle.

 

Physical Theatre Workshop "The Poetry of Movement" in Cologne / Köln December 2018     Physcial Theatre Class in Köln / Cologne: Featuring Contemporary Dance, Noh Theatre and Butoh

 

Workshop direction: Samuel Núñez is a theatre director and teacher specialized in physical theatre, transdiscipline, theatre anthropology and emotional expression. For more than 25 years he has been exploring and developing techniques for the direction and training of artists. One of his main focuses are methods which enable artists to connect authentically with their creative source, their co-artists and those experiencing their art. As this work turned out to be very valuable not only in the field of creativity, but just as much for the whole being, Samuel also likes to work with persons who don´t have a direct interest in the performing arts. At present he mainly works in Barcelona, Berlin and the area of Cologne. You can find his detailed biography here.

Physical Theatre Workshop Sacred Theatre and Performance in Barcelona

 

TEATRO SAGRADO & PERFORMANCE

Workshop de teatro físico en Barcelona

 

Sacred theatre does not imply religion here, although it has some ideas in common with some religions: Deconstructing art, it wants to bring to light its essence. Sacred theatre is revolutionary from the inside to the outside. It aims to meet the very human necessities of freedom, self-effectiveness and feeling alive. By respectings these, it also can give culture and society the same impulses. Little importance is given to the intelectual level, so called "learning" or the result of the work (showing). Here, art is understood as a vehicle to overcome borders and boundries and to make visible the concepts that keep us from breathing freely.

 

In terms of emotional work in theatre this is about letting go of techniques and methods to really incorporate them. If we can transcend techniques on one hand and our own inner limitations on the other hand, theatre becomes organic and alive.

 

During this workshop we will apply the ideas of sacred theatre to movement and performance.

 

We will explore:

• Performances as rituals

• To be and not to act

• Energy and presence

• Sychronicity and interconnectivity (tecniques of movement and intuitive body communication)

• Permeability of being

• Transgression of art

Sacred Theatre & Shamanism - the Transformative Power of Art

A theatre workshop at ANDERE WELT Strausberg

 

Sacred theatre does not imply religion here, although it has some ideas in common with some religions: Deconstructing art, it wants to bring to light its essence. Sacred theatre is revolutionary from the inside to the outside. It aims to meet the very human necessities of freedom, self-effectiveness and feeling alive. By respectings these, it also can give culture and society the same impulses. Little importance is given to the intelectual level, so called "learning" or the result of the work (showing). Here, art is understood as a vehicle to overcome borders and boundries and to make visible the concepts that keep us from breathing freely.

 

In terms of emotional work in theatre this is about letting go of techniques and methods to really incorporate them. If we can transcend techniques on one hand and our own inner limitations on the other hand, theatre becomes organic and alive.

 

During this workshop we will do research on shamanism techniques and how they apply to Sacred Theatre.

 

• Synchronnicity and oneness: human beings as interconnected parts of nature

• Emotions and states of body-and-mind as experience of energy

• Silence as an origin of authentic creative expression

• Rituals as transformative Performances

In a setting close to nature which offers few distractions, the participants can dive deeply into the world of their own emotions to explore them and learn to use them as an instrument of art.

 

As always, this is not about acting in a way of imitation or mimicry. The techniques practised here allow to work with authenticly experienced emotions without getting lost in them.

For more info on working with emtions see Physical Theatre and Samuel´s Biography.
