An actor on stage. One camera records him. Reproject its action behind him. We can modify it, change reproduction rate, speed, direction, display mode. We can relate to it, creating a game with the myself i was a moment ago – or long before. We can intervene in real time on what’s happening on stage, playing between an actor and an avatar, played by the actor himself. We can then film-edit instantaneously what camera is filming, mixing actual record to prerecorded video loops.
Is all that puppetry? Video performance? Mime? Live cinema? All this and more.
An open lab where we’ll experiment together interactive video-theatre language, bringing our own ideas and creating desire
We’ll explore recent digital technologies born for theatre, dance, VJing and live show. We’ll learn to use powerful softwares for live events control.
We’ll experiment hardware interfaces and sensors born to interact with movements happening on the stage, aiming to create an interaction between actions and multimedia settings. We’ll discover interactive possibilities between actor, interfaces and software, to extend overall possibilities.

The form of soul - 10day intensive butoh workshop with Motimaru Dance Company,Santorini island Greece, 24th of August-2nd of September
100,000years ago, when Homo sapiens emerged on this planet, the first human art has emerged in the dark cave, where eyes cannot see. What they were seeing with the eyes of the body-mind is the depth of our unconscious. Times change, but this must be a fundamental principle of human art. Our everyday life passes, eating, working, or dancing, within a limited cage, burying rich nature within us. Educations, traditions, or even learning dance could mold various forms of cages. Free improvisation could also end up struggling in the same cage. But when we observe forests carefully, so many varieties of forms and qualities of plants, flowers, stones, winds, and sounds astonish us. This workshop is an invitation for diving into the unknown forest of our body-mind, discovering unlimited movements and qualities within us, and transforming the personal journey into universal poems.

The Silent Inner Warrior - Butoh Dance & Creation of a costume
Intensive workshop with Maya Dunsky (Israel)
12-14 June 2015, Berlin
“My dance works express an essence that is free from concrete story. They are characterized by esthetics, minimalism and with constant touch to the universal spirit, that reconnects hearts & souls of all mankind. My activity is committed to authenticity that does not correspond to what is considered to be customary.
I aspire to lead the awakened and present audience into rear worlds where they can let go off attachment & recall the true primal nature of being". Maya Dunsky
The workshop is for those interested in deep inner process that guides to the essence. Suitable for movement lovers, dancers, actors, theatre and psychodrama practitioners, dance therapists and others artistic and therapeutic professions, that touch the imagination, transformation and empowerment.
The workshop focuses on creating a garment/dress/costume and a dance within that new charachter. The participants will build costumes that will serve as an inspiration to connect with new and unpredictable identities. Materials that may have been foreign to each other in daily life, come together to construct a new zone- a new home-a new body.
We will explore together the inner motion and frequencies and how they slowly and gently form an ecstatic presence. Through the process that encourages one to shed off habits and beliefs, an authentic body language will unfold.
** The participants are encouraged to bring clothes, fabrics, rags, papers, objects, accessories, colors, make-up, wires, adhesives and etc.
Date: 12-14 June, 10:00-17:00Venue: Studio 2, Mime Centrum Berlin, Kunstquartier Bethanien, Mariannenplatz 2, 1 OG, 10997 Berlin.
Price: early bird (till May 25) - 190 euro, late bird (after May 25) - 210 Euro.
