Anger & Creativity is the first part of the series of workshops Emotion & Creativity: discovering  the power and creativity in connection.

Anger is one of the basic emotions.

As a basic element of our psychosomatic existence is meant to protect us and to connect us with our power and creativity.

In this workshop we will explore the qualities of anger and express it through healthy channels of creativity.

The tools we are going to use are colors, shapes, breathing, movement and body positioning, words and tales.

workshop’s aims:

  • for participants to connect with the emotion of anger
  • to understand the qualities of anger
  • to connect with power as one of the main qualities
  • to associate anger with creativity
  • to explore the quality of anger in their bodies through body experimentation
  • to be able to recognize it in connection with others

In this short self awareness journey Life, Nature, Art, Knowledge and Freedom will be our sponsors.

Embodying the Theatrical Role

the joker by Agapi Gegisian

A role is a narrative. A narrative with past, present and future. The performer is entrusted to condense this time into the here and now and to infuse the narrative into a performance. In this metamorphosis the performer is simultaneously vessel and content.

She/ he is meant to approach, comprehend, delve deeply into and embody the role in their inner self. This embodiment  is always triangular, containing mind, body and emotion.

The aim of this workshop is to explore a series of tools that help the performer to navigate consistently and to build the character in all three levels. We will study ways of creating the psychological profile of the role with the particular emphasis on the embodiment of the psychological characteristics onto the body itself.

Which questions and elements should we include into our study? How do we start from facts and learn how to tint them? How do we recognize the resources and defenses of the character? What are the internal and external dynamics of the role? How can the performer use the face, the look, the movement but also the posture itself in order to infuse the narrative? How the body becomes the anchor to connect with the role and at the same time disconnect when necessary.
