Based on our experiences in contemporary improvisation, voice and in Polish laboratory theatre, our work uses movement, song and word to investigate the art of performance. Over six days of intense physical, vocal and energetic training we'll:
• search for ways to be more fully awake and alive in the moment of performance, and how to give ourselves fully to our work, our partners and the audience;
• awaken the impulses and imagination of invitation with Philippe Gaulier in Paris.
