LUCID BODY – workshop in cooperation with Kula Compagnie, March 6th, 2020, National theatre in Belgrade

Like an architect needs a free space for a building, a painter a white veil, a performing artist needs a clear balanced body free of patterns and pain supported with a clear and focused mind.

„The main purpose of my method is to bring to the surface the physically perceptive sensibility which actors originally had.” (Tadashi Suzuki)

With simple exercises coming from martial arts and functional integration (Talmi-Method®) we will make a journey to a lucid body.

Workshop is open for:

- Members of Drama, Opera and Ballet Ensemble of the National theatre in Belgrade

- Interested artists: actors, dancers, choreographers, performers and students

Comfortable and adequate clothing and shoes needed (sneakers, socks, ballet shoes).
