Detaillierte Informationen:


If dancers are given permission to tap into their suppressed emotional energy and embrace their vulnerability, will their physical movement and presence onstage become stronger and more meaningful? »The Clowning Facade: improvising through emotional impulses«, will focus on discussing the following questions: Can embracing emotional energy, vulnerability and acknowledging our many facades create a more dynamic and genuine performer? Will improvisational poems, monologues, movement scores, and songs give a performer space to em-brace their vulnerability: opening a window to explore untapped mental and physical possibilities?
