Part Two

Creating Flow

This ensuing period of the workshops could be included in the preparation of the show. The rehearsal period will deepen the practice and, therefore, the understanding of new knowledge, which increases the experience. What is learned in the workshop is used in daily rehearsals in real situations and explained accordingly. The main method for show development can be anything: spoken drama, dance, physical theatre or the fusion of all of these.

The First Stage: The Stairs

External, psychophysical.
This is a preparing level and can be used as a warm-up for rehearsal, in which a shared space will be created. It provides an embodied understanding of psychophysical insight: the tools for improving self-confidence and connection with a partner and how it works. How to create a performing flow.

The Second Stage: The Entrance

Introverted Kinaesthetic awareness in use.
This level is turning external focus (from physical doing) inward, tuning one to be more intimate, peaceful and thereby more precise, present and aware of the inner processes for differentiation and sharpening of perception.

The Third Stage: Zero Zone Dynamics

The intellectual knowledge, given in lecture-discussion mode.
While the first two levels are carried by curiosity and gradually progressing awareness, supported by personal insights private to every participant, the third level frames everything together: the reasons, the destination, the path and the result.
