NAKED IDEAS – The practice of being watched



The practice of being watched

9 – 12 May at Konvent
Ingo Reulecke (Berlin) and Trinidad Martínez (Hamburg)

For artists (visual and otherwise) who would like to explore performance through improvisation. In this workshop we will explore the basic tools that are essential for creating engaging performance for an audience.

Often filled with ideas, practicing alone can be easy, but when we are in front of others we can become tense and blocked, losing all the spontaneity of the act. Of course it’s impossible to be completely natural under the eye of others. But we can nevertheless approach it, if we practice carefully and intentionally. To this end, we start with smalls steps in a safe environment, ensuring we maintain the joy and comfort of improvisation. Gaining trust and embracing feedback before stepping in front of a larger group will enable unfettered creativity.

Our beginning point is the body. We will remain connected with our intuition and let ourselves go, before attaching to ideas. Through our own movement, through ourselves, and with others, we will discover our naked ideas.

As dancers/facilitators, we are strongly interested in the interface between visual art (in its widest sense) and (movement and sound) improvisation practice.
