19. - 23. Jan 2022
Poupětova 3, 170 00 Praha 7-Holešovice,
Five days with a legend of Odin Teatret Bridge of Winds, an exclusive workshop
with Iben Nagel Rasmussen
together with Elena Floris
Theatrical legend Iben Nagel Rasmussen came up with a unique way to train performers that demolishes the barriers between theatre, dance, and vocal performance. Since 1966, Iben has been a member of Odin Teatret, which under the leadership of Eugenio Barba became a worldwide theatrical legend thanks to a comprehensive approach to working with its troupe. It has been in existence for 55 years.
Iben Nagel Rasmussen is fascinating both as a performer and as an individual. She gave up teaching several years ago, and since then has been focusing solely on Bridge of Winds, a closed group. For this reason, among others, DOX is honoured to be able to offer a singular opportunity: to experience the exceptional development of the acting, dance, and vocal abilities of Bridge of Winds with its author, who will conduct the five-day workshop with violinist Elena Floris, also a member of Odin Teatret.
The workshop is open to all interested, not only students of theatre/dance or professionals. Participants will develop a strong presence and dynamic action through movement and voice in space, thus discovering their personal poetry.
Bridge of Winds has already raised two generations of theatre/dance artists from Latin America, Europe, and Asia.
Bridge of Winds exercises develop various types of energy. The performer generates their flow, creates and transfers a message through physical and vocal action, work with space, props, and text, in contact with other participants in the exercise.
Each day’s training session will be followed by personal consultation and a video seminar. On Sunday, 6 Dec at 7:00 p.m., the workshop will culminate with a combined evening with Iben: a showing of the film Bridge of Winds, her work demonstration entitled White as Jasmine, and a discussion.
