    3 Workshops by The Bridge of Winds


    Monday, January 22, 2018 - Friday, January 26, 2018

    THREE WORKSHOPS BY THE BRIDGE OF WINDS

    AND A WORK-IN-PROGRESS PERFORMANCE
    LED BY IBEN NAGEL RASMUSSEN

     

    From​ ​22​ ​to​ ​26​ ​January​ ​2018 in ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Ghent,​​ Belgium.

     

    WORKSHOPS:

    Physical and vocal training

    Physical training

    as developed by Iben Nagel Rasmussen and The Bridge of Winds during the last 25 years.

    Wind-dance - creating a light airy energy.

    Samurai - an earthbound and strong energy

    Green energy - a slow and resisting energy

    Montage of physical scores based on the exercises.

     

    The​ ​students​ ​work​ ​carefully​ ​on​ ​the​ ​preparation​ ​of​ ​physical​ ​actions,​ ​through​ ​exercises​ ​they​ ​learn​ ​to master​ ​and​ ​manipulate​ ​according​ ​to​ ​their​ ​own​ ​poetics.

    All​ ​exercises​ ​aim to​ ​find​ ​a​ ​flow​ ​of​ ​energies​ ​that​ ​allows the​ ​performer​ ​to​ ​engage​ ​and​ ​interact with​ ​space,​ ​rhythm,​ ​intensities​ ​and other​ ​performers.

    Masters: Sofia Monsalve, Mika Juusela


    Vocal training

    Text and songs

    Resonators

    Relation between voice and body

    Creation of vocal sequences by the group.

     

    The​ ​principles​ ​approached​ ​will​ ​be​ ​developed further​ ​in​ ​the​ ​creation​ ​of​ ​performing​ ​scores​ ​connected​ ​to​ ​music​ ​and​ ​text,​ ​as​ ​the​ ​vocal​ ​universe​ ​of​ ​the group​ ​expands​ ​and​ ​incorporate​ ​the​ ​different​ ​sources​ ​of​ ​sound​ ​the​ ​body​ ​in​ ​its​ ​whole​ ​can​ ​produce.

    NB: Bring a short text which you know by heart.

    Masters: Carlos Simioni and Sandra Pasini

     

    Clown

    Introduction​ ​to​ ​the​ ​language​ ​of​ ​clown.

    In​ ​this​ ​course​ ​we​ ​will​ ​work​ ​on​ ​the​ ​basis​ ​for​ ​the development​ ​of​ ​your​ ​own​ ​clown,​ ​transforming difficulties,​ ​mistakes​ ​and​ ​failures​ ​we​ ​find​ ​along the​ ​way​ ​into​ ​creative​ ​tools.

    This​ ​is​ ​a​ ​collective​ ​study,​ ​where​ ​the​ ​spectators become​ ​a​ ​fundamental​ ​piece​ ​of​ ​the​ ​process.

    The​ ​workshop​ ​is​ ​intended​ ​for​ ​beginners​ ​and advanced​ ​students​ ​looking​ ​for​ ​new​ ​approaches to​ ​clowning​ ​and​ ​physical​ ​work.​ ​Participants​ ​with previous​ ​experience​ ​are​ ​welcome​ ​to​ ​bring​ ​their own​ ​costume.

    And​ ​if​ ​you​ ​happen​ ​to​ ​play​ ​any​ ​instrument,​ ​please bring​ ​it​ ​on!

    Master: Guillermo Angelelli

    Transformation​ ​of​ ​Peking​ ​Opera​ ​Technique

    The​ ​students​ ​will​ ​become​ ​acquainted​ ​and​ ​work​ ​on​ ​basic theatre​ ​movements​ ​from​ ​Chinese​ ​Peking​ ​Opera.

    During​ ​the​ ​course​ ​of​ ​the​ ​week,​ ​these​ ​traditional​ ​theatre movements​ ​will​ ​be​ ​transformed,​ ​manipulated​ ​and​ ​unfolded into​ ​something​ ​we​ ​call​ ​'New​ ​Codification',​ ​exploring​ ​new meanings​ ​and​ ​possibilities​ ​for​ ​modern​ ​theatre​ ​through​ ​the ancient​ ​oriental​ ​theatre​ ​Bodies.

    Master: Yiteng Ding

    The​ ​Bridge​ ​of​ ​Winds​ ​is​ ​an​ ​international​ ​theatre​ ​group​ ​directed​ ​by​ ​Odin​ ​Teatret's​ ​actress​ ​Iben​ ​Nagel Rasmussen​ ​since​ ​1989,​ ​with​ ​a​ ​group​ ​of​ ​artists​ ​from​ ​Latin​ ​America, Asia​ ​and​ ​Europe.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​a​ ​collective​ ​of​ ​artists from​ ​many​ ​artistic​ ​disciplines​ ​and​ ​cultures​ ​profoundly​ ​different,​ ​creating​ ​a​ ​transcultural​ ​dialogue​ ​that surpasses​ ​aesthetic​ ​matters​ ​and​ ​provides​ ​depth​ ​for​ ​a​ ​broader​ ​understanding​ ​of​ ​what​ ​embodied exchange​ ​means.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​an​ ​organic​ ​collective​ ​whose​ ​transversality​ ​occurs​ ​in​ ​the​ ​artistic​ ​path​ ​of​ ​each member.

    The​ ​group​ ​meets​ ​once​ ​a​ ​year​ ​in​ ​different​ ​places​ ​around​ ​the​ ​world.​ ​During​ ​each​ ​meeting,​ ​the​ ​work focuses​ ​in​ ​the​ ​craft​ ​of​ ​the​ ​actor:​ ​vocal​ ​and​ ​physical​ ​training,​ ​the​ ​creation​ ​of​ ​performances​ ​(in​ ​and outdoor)​ ​and​ ​projects​ ​of​ ​cultural​ ​exchange​ ​in​ ​different​ ​social​ ​contexts.

    ​The​ ​Bridge​ ​of​ ​Winds​ ​will​ ​meet​ ​in​ ​​Ghent,​ ​Belgium​,​ ​to​ ​develop​ ​an​ ​artistic research​ ​and​ ​to​ ​promote​ ​a​ ​series​ ​of​ ​artistic​ ​exchanges​ ​with​ ​the​ ​city.
