We are thrilled to welcoming Patsy Rodenburg for the third time at the Danish National School of Performing Arts
During the workshop Patsy Rodenburg will work with participants on body centring and aligning to create a naturally placed and connected body.
Patsy Rodenburg will work on participants breathing creating a flexible and powerful breath system needed to support classical text. Participants will be shown how to free their voice so that it can freely express emotional and intellectual passion and will work on muscular articulation.
The masterclass is in cooperation with the Danish Actors Associaton - DSF Studio and Norsk Skuespillersenter
The workshop will also investigate and work on harnessing “Presence” through greater self-awareness. Patsy Rodenburg will reveal the concept of the three circles of energy and how all human energy moves:
- First Circle – the circle of self and withdrawal
- Second Circle – the energy of connecting where your energy is focused and where you react and communicate best
- Third Circle – the circle where all your energy is outward, nonspecific and not targeted
“Twelfth Night“ is the play that will be used during the workshop. The actors may choose to work in Danish or English.
Patsy Rodenburg believes in working ensemble and will create a safe and creative place for participants to work within. Participants will also have an opportunity to work individually with Patsy Rodenburg during the workshop.
You can participate as an actor on stage or as an observer
For those who wish to attend the masterclass as an observer, please apply for 7145 Observer / PRESENCE - Masterclass with Patsy Rodenburg.
