Warrior of the Dance and Singing – open ongoing group
Do you want to express yourself? Feel to dance your body, use your voice and create a performance in the present moment? Do you want to express the energy of life, of freedom, courage and authenticity? Then come and taste our workshop!
You are going to dive into the experience of expressing the creativity in your own dance and voice in an RITUAL THEATER setting. We use a new concept of Ritual theater called “Step out of the Story”.
What is Ritual Theater? Ritual Theater is very old, it is a form of theatre where the audience is as important as the actors. They form a group of loving, supporting eyes and body’s to witness the expression of the artist(s) who performs on the basis of improvisation. The challenge for the artist is to feel what is present in his/her body and to use it in a performance with dance, body movement, and/or voice/music.
Why it’s called Warrior? We see the warrior as the brave part inside us, which is always in the present moment. Everybody has a Warrior inside!
PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WITH DANCE AND VOICE NO MUST
If you already gained experience in your life in dancing and singing and martial arts it is great, but no must. OUR WORKSHOP IS SUITABLE FOR ALL LEVELS. We all tab into the same stream of creativity and our abilities and previous experiences make us express this in a unique and very interesting way.
To prepare you for your performance we use practices from Theater, Conscious Dance, Voice work and Martial Arts.
These 4 workshops will be an Open ongoing group. You can come just once, but we suggest/recommend, you come to all of them. Why? We are opening/discovering our creative stream, we are working with the Ritual theatre. Our focus is to learn how to perform. And this takes an effort. So during these 4 workshops, you will learn the basis of thebasics for performing and you will be prepared to attend the next step, which is a Movement Performance Creation.

Until this time, in the romantic city of Prague, I was leading a Drama theater company, where I used to direct performances, guide dramaturgy and keep the company going, growing and expanding. There was a time, we had two theater houses and around 50 people working there. Our performances were seen by around 200 000 people.
