Workshop – 25 may 2021

Tomorrow’s workshop!
Our fantastic facilitator will be the amazing Alejandro Niklison!

“We are going to explore movement and voice, play with new sounds and movements outside of our comfort zone.

We are going to move from abstract sounds to written text, experimenting with words to break the union

between meaning and intention.

Use comfortable clothes and bring a short text (no more than a couple of lines) that you are very comfortable with and that you can repeat in a loop.
Have a piece of paper and colours at hand.”

Workshop – 18 may 2021


Melodrama Workshop

The wonderful and insanely talented Ciaran Treanor will be doing his workshop on Melodrama.

Melodrama, definitely not mellow drama. Heh heh heh.

In modern terms, melodrama is typically a dramatic work wherein the plot, which is often sensational and designed to appeal strongly to the emotions, takes precedence over detailed characterization. Bye-bye nuance! Melodramas typically concentrate on dialogue, which is often bombastic or excessively sentimental, rather than action. Melodrama acting styles tend to be overdramatic and unrealistic. But all of this, when done right, can be fairly entertaining.

We will be exploring some fun games and materials in the theme of melodrama. Gettin’ silly with it. That’s the plan. I look forward to seeing you fine folks there.
