The workshop contains several sessions:
- Introduction to the ‘Confirmation system of improvisation’ (this system is developed over several years during the Needcompany rehearsals and confronts in the first place dancers with less acting experience with character development and dialogue impro’s) ;
- Introduction to the ‘off-centre strategy’ (the demystification of the centre-ideology of conventional theatre);
- Introduction to the demystification process of the real-time acting (destruction of an illusion/rebuilding an illusion);
For this session, Alberto Moravia’s ‘The Angel of information’, Oscar Wilde’s ‘Salome’ and texts by Jan Lauwers will be used.
