The workshop will take place as part of the "Small Arts" Platform, which will take place from 16 to 19 August 2022 in Ljubljana.
Igor Vrebac (Mime School Amsterdam) will take us on a journey of exploring movement and the skills needed to tell a story, using mime corporel, a physical technique developed by Étienne Decroux in the 1960s. The main focus of the workshop will be on finding the zéro , i.e. to be able to find a neutral stage body which constitutes itself in relation to the time and the space but is at the same time also always ready to change into anything. Furthermore the workshop offers a deep dive into translating this technique into a more modern way of working. How do the movements and postures relate to thought and emotions? What do they tell us and how can we communicate them with the audience, making them visible and recognizable for the spectator?
The three day workshop, which will be rounded off by a showcase of short solo acts, will focus on different states, on stillness, looking inwards and on getting into a state of confusion and chaos to create beauty.
Igor Vrebac (1986) graduated from acting and directing at the Amsterdam School of Arts (AhK) in 2012. He has performed in different theatre performances in the Netherlands and abroad, appeared in several Dutch TV series and film productions. In 2016, he directed his first physical theatre performance Macho Macho, for which he received the Dioraphte Best of Amsterdam Fringe award. Since 2021, he has been giving workshops aimed at empowering individuals through holistic and spiritual methods. He focuses on translating his experience as director/choreographer into explorations of (physical) awareness through movement.
