Bodyclownerie with Ákos Hargitay
This workshop is about creating situations with our bodies that make us and others laugh. Beyond our body we using selected objects and attributes of play (such as movement restriction, exaggeration, contrast, repetition, etc.). I believe humor will emerge from within without being forced.
Contemporary dance techniques, “authentic movement” and “Primal movement”, “animal flow”, Contact & partnering, parkour technic, voice and breath work are used to prepare the body for clownish play.
