Application for 'Taking Steps, Standing Still'
This workshop is dedicated to inspire each participant to find their own voice, either in life or as a performer. There are no limits to express yourself. No rules for a unique beautiful and human expression of oneself. The workshop would hence focus on conducting exercises which may help individuals de mask oneself from their current role set and focus internally on the emotional, social and at times spiritual effects of movement and theatre.

• Part 1 - Who am I: With a selection of different exercises we explore the theme with our minds, bodies and voices. We try to create a free flow of inspirations and ideas, to collect material, which will help us to find our own unique expressions as performers and individuals.
• Part 2 - The others and me: Inspired by other cultures through images, music and texts we are exploring our individual connection to the world and people around us.
• Part 3 – Finding a Voice: This is the part of the session where we will create the performances with the material we have collected and put into practice what we have learned throughout the workshop.

During the session we will explore elements of a wide variety practices through movement explorations, dance and theatre making, readings, discussions, videos, written responses, collaborative projects. By examining movement in both global and local contexts we will move towards a fuller appreciation and understanding of the influence of movement and theatre in our everyday lives as well as an embodied reflection and expression of the city in which we live.

• Describe the functions of movement / theatre and the relationship between performance and the greater artistic, social, cultural and political landscape in which it was created and currently exists.
• Creating an open and secure space meant to encourage collaboration and support of other artists and human beings.
• Finding the connection to another person and the world where we find inspiration and artistic expression.

Anyone wanting to work with finding new connections with one's own body, to work individually or with a group, Art Practitioners, Theatre and Movement Enthusiasts
