August 2-6, 5 days

A course for you who want to immerse yourself in the physical expression of acting. We let go of the head and the theory to instead be inspired by the physical impulses that arise in the work on the floor. For five days we work with the body, voice and text both individually and in groups. The Kurd participants are assigned a text to work with and together we examine direction, audience meeting and expansion. We break free from the predetermined, use the body as a source of inspiration and seek outside our own comfort zone.

Date: 2-6 August, 5 days

Language: Teaching takes place in Swedish or English adapted to the participants' needs.
