Theatre courses on the HeuBühne
Actor and theatre maker Carlos Becker and singer and actress Annina Gieré run theatre courses for teenagers and adults on the HeuBühne.
The focus lies on PHYSICAL THEATRE according to the method of Jacques Lecoq.
After workshops in the theatrical style of the Comic strip (Bande mimée), a theatre course on the Human comedy, Masktheatre now follows:
Limitless are the possibilities of humans to make an audience laugh, cry and dream with only their body and voice! How do we make human emotions, interests and driving forces visible in body language? How do we bring archetypes of our society onto the stage? How do we work with the voice on stage? How do we move with a mask and how do we make one in the first place? All these are parts of the course and come together in the Human Comedy. Public performances on the HeuBühne conclude the course.
Shows: Saturday, 7 and Sunday, 8 May 2022,
