Integrating Theatre, Puppetry and Social Conscience

Oct. 6th - Oct. 12th. 2014, Sofia, Bulgaria

A collaboration project between the International Theatre Lab (Norway) and the Department of Puppetry at the National Academy for Theatre and Film Arts (Bulgaria).

OPEN TO actors, performers, students and teachers of acting.

SCHOLARSHIPS: The creative laboratory offers a limited number of scholarships to international candidates with special interest in practical research and socially engaged art. The scholarships cover 50% of expenses around tuition and accommodation.

International Theatre Workshops 2014 present an exciting next chapter in ITL’s ongoing search for new tools – a quest to expand the actor’s expression and enable her/him to create poignant social commentary using the language of theatrical metaphor. Our focus this year will be on puppetry and its capacity to create theatrical ‘signs’ that bear meaning.

" Form of soul"
Butoh & body-mind-space metamorphosis
2 days intensive Workshop
Dates, Location, Price:
5th& 6th July 2014 ( 13:00- 19:00)
Studio 142 ( Kunstquartier Bethanien, Mariannenplatz 2, 1st floor, Room 142, 10997 Berlin)
€ 100

"Kara-da" means in Japanese body. " Kara" means emptiness and " da" means existence. This is how the Japanese considered what the body is, or ...who we really are. Here it is not talking only about Japanese culture, but the universal reality of the existence.
What we are looking for is a form which is not bound by traditions that is losing reality in this rapidly changing time, nor some stylized genre, but one which is liberate and connected to our own real being. Form of soul.
The main seed of the research comes from Kazuo Ohno dance studio- lessons form Yoshito Ohno. In their works we have found not the styles ( white painting, grotesqueness, etc) but the way to explore the universal reality of our body-mind- space through dance, and to embody everything such as paintings, sculptures, music, and any existence into dance.
The workshop does not intend to spread " butoh" or some certain style, but to devote it to contemporary arts and invite the participants to learn an essential approach to body-mind-space and create their own dance, art, life.

After the 2days workshop in Berlin, there will be Sound Harmonization guided by Tivitavi Roberto Papini from 20:00 5th July.

And 7th, 8th July, 2014 "Sounds of the body, Signs of the heart"
Butoh, Sensitive Dance & Voice workshop by Kea Tonetti, voice and live music by Tivitavi Roberto Papini

Re‐awaken your dance and liberate your voice in an authentic manner, allowing their truth to manifest in the moment, from the body, from the soul and from the heart. The encounter between voice and butoh dance is something that is both highly surreal and expressive, which can help you to surpass the limits of what you know, transporting you to a new world of self-­‐understanding and of rebirth, where emotions can no longer be codified, blending into each other, as do forms and sounds. In this oneiric and parallel world, everything is possible: the Spirits of Nature materialize and speak -­‐ emotions and internal pulsations take form and sing. Practices from Sensitive dance®, Hara yoga and Butoh allow us to consciously interact with our body and our breath, nurturing our own sense of grounding to operate on the plane of terrestrial energy, re-­‐awakening a dance of sensations. Opening our perception of space and time, we nourish our presence in the moment, allowing the dance and the voice to manifest from the silent emptyness that permeates everything, thus giving form to the invisible. Evoking internal images and landscapes, we will re-­‐awaken emotions, pulsations and antique memories; incorporating the energies of Nature, we give them voice, and dancing the emotions, we allow them to sing. Opening ourselves to active listening and feeling, we allow ourselves to dance and sing, living entirely in the moment, so that forms and sounds may become the expression of our soul.

with Anna Natt & Yalda Younes

21 − 22 June 2014

Not Flamenco, enables participants to extract the aspects of Flamenco closest to its original roots of an avant-garde form of protest and liberation. By approaching this form through a contemporary dance lens, Flamenco is able to become a universal language free from its traditional associations. Participants will be taught how to harness flamenco forms and stylistically reinvent and repurpose them according to their individual expression and artistic interests.

Not Flamenco is open to movers of all levels and anyone who is curious to interact with this art form on a personal level and without the weight of tradition. Each session will start with a yoga based warm- up that will center us in our bodies. Once we've activated our awareness we will put on our shoes and begin tapping into the ground, exploring the contradictory yet complementary forces of rooting the feet into the earth while sending the torso towards the sky.

Saturday, June 21, 2014 + Sunday, June 22, 2014
14h − 18h

radical dance performance workshop TriumVirate

with Valentin Tszin (Moscow), Sung Kuk Kang (Seoul) and Yuko Kaseki (Tokyo/Berlin) 

July 17 - 20, 2014, Berlin

Three radical experimenters, dancers and choreographers will make a collaborative workshop for the first time in Berlin.
These artists are different in physicality, history, geographical location and nationalities. They will share their own methodology of movement, influenced by Butoh, physical theatre, contemporary dance, performance art and improvisation. And there will appear a brand-new form through blending their ideas in this special workshop. 

Valentin Tszin will focus on his "Theatre of Radical Levels" method which is based on the distinct division into five elements: orthodox, relative, illusion, iteration and naivety. In contiguity of these five elements of natural artistry there occurs a positive conflict which lets out the source of radicalism of one's "levels".
Sung Kuk Kang shows his special existence, movement and dramaturgy. Participants will be encouraged to discover their original dance.
Yuko Kaseki's basic training on Butoh method, Noguchi Taiso, Tai Chi Dao-in aims to open awareness of inner and outer world and to realize permeable body. Playful and original movement will be encountered through elemental improvisations with time and spaces.

Workshop presentation will be shown on the last day.

Hasenheide 9, Gewerbehof - Aufgang 1, 3. OG

Laboratory guided by Pere Sais and assisted by Marc Naya. From 20/06/2014 to 24/06/2014.

The laboratory will be based on several techniques from Jerzy Grotowski investigation and developed by Pere Sais and the research group Ars Performance Lab.

The workshop will focus in the exploration of the primary potentiality of the performer as a human being in action and it will be articulated in different elements/structures of work:

-"Dancing with the topography": walk/course around the country side/environment and adaptation to the ground

-Presence, watchful atention and perception channels.

-Circulation of the atention.

-Night vigils.

-Archaic forms of movement.

-Vibratory chants.
-Exercises "corporals".


The work will be developed in and out of the house, through the countryside. The program may be changed because of the weather or the specific dynamic of the group.

Limited number of participants: 8 persons.

Place: Ca la Cultura, Caseres.

Price: 180 € (food and residency included, transportation apart) We organize cars from Barcelona for those who travel from there (the cost of the trip Barcelona-Caseres and vice versa is around 16-20€)

Body Weather Workshop in Berlin with Frank Van De Ven
at Uferstudios
Body meets Imagination.
Info and reservation: David Hall
Tel: +49 1578 4250969

Part A 10:00 - 13:00 Body Weather training
Body Weather is a comprehensive training and performance practice that investigates the intersections of bodies and their environments. Bodies are not conceived as fixed and separate entities but are - just like the weather - constantly changing through an infinite and complex system of processes occurring in- and outside of these bodies.

As a training, Body Weather is of relevance to anyone interested in exploring the body and physical presence and can be aligned to various dance and theatre practices.

The daily training-routine consists of:
- ‘MB’ (mind/body, muscles/bones)
An energetic, dynamic and rhythmic movement work-out that observes the kinaesthetic sensitivity and co-ordination potential of the body-in-motion while developing strength, endurance, flexibility and grounding.

- ‘Manipulations’
Structured and paced work with partners, concerned with breathing, stretching, alignment and the notion of ‘relaxation’.

Part B 14:00 - 17:00 Body Meets Imagination

- ‘Laboratory’
A wide forum of explorations including work on segmentation, different speeds within the body and the notion of time, sensory investigation, spatial awareness inside and outside the body, image-to-movement work.
Emphasis is given on observation and feedback as a means to objectify experience and to sharpen and articulate the perception of bodies.

The term and philosophical basis for Body Weather was founded in the early 1980's by dancer Min Tanaka and further developed by Laboratories worldwide.
Frank van de Ven was a member of Min Tanaka’s Maijuku Performance Company in Japan, from 1983-1991. Since 1993 he leads Body Weather Amsterdam, a platform for Training and Performance Research.

Part A: 140 euro
Part B: 140 euro
A and B: 250 euro
Students/ unwaged 220 euro
1 single morning/ afternoon 35 euro from 2 or more 30 euro
