Balinese Masks Theatre Workshop at TATWERK | PERFORMATIVE FORSCHUNG

June 30, 2018 at 2pm to July 1, 2018 at 6pm
What is my own mask? What makes me free? How do I create a new character far enough from myself to be different and close enough to express myself? This workshop will be a theatrical approach to creation through Balinese masks. We will explore these ideas through two avenues: 1. From the body to the mask. 2. From the mask to the body. There is an inner exploration first, to recognize the body as it is at the present moment. Then we will break that moment in the creation of something new.…See More

June 15, 2018 at 8:30pm to June 17, 2018 at 10pm
“When I was a child my mother used to tell me, that I am a citizen of the world. Of course I believed her, she was my mother. But the older I got, the more I understood that this is only my mother’s dream. Borders exist – for somebody more, for the luckiest less. Their lines and rules sometimes change, but they do exist.”Intime Fremde is dedicated to a reflection over the idea of border, identity, the concept of nation, country of origin, to the encounter/collision of different anatomies such…See More

The workshop will focus on different aspects of the dancing body. What is dance? How can we build a body for dancing? What is body? What is a Spirit?

After a short pause, we will treat themes like passive movement, internal movement, density of the body, intensions, relation with time and space, personal body and common body, selective attention.

July 16, 2018 at 10am to July 29, 2018 at 6pm
“So foul and fair a day I have not seen”“Macbeth and his consequences” is a new project I am working on where not only actors but also dancers and directors are invited to work together in order to create and explore “Macbeth” and its battle.  The participants will be the real protagonists with their creative path and their active participation. We will explore this ancient and well known play in a uncommon way, where words won’t be our first instrument but our last or maybe we won’t need them…See More

March 17, 2018 from 8:30pm to 10pm
Hinter dem genüsslich klingenden Titel verbirgt sich eine einmalige Kombination aus Text und Musik, Diskurs und Sinnlichkeit, Rollenspiel und Gesellschaftsanalyse. Die musikalische Lesereihe Porno und Piano verwebt Pornodialoge mit theoretischen Texten und Werken moderner Dichter- und Denker*innen zu literarischen Collagen – gerahmt von und gewürzt mit neuer, experimenteller Livemusik.
 Die literarischen Streifzüge führen von BDSM-Spielen, über Voyeurismus und Selbstbefriedigung bis hin zu…See More

"Gegen ein Funktionalisieren des Frauenbildes in Stereotypen der Mütterlichkeit können wir nicht viel tun außer immer klarer sagen und immer wieder sagen und immer mehr darüber nachdenken, wie wir verhindern, daß wir in eine neue Schablone gepreßt werden und wieder vermarktet werden."

The choreographic Intermezzo YOU ARE THE POINT provides friction on a high level. Angela Lamprianidou invites you to an appointment with yourself. A retrospection into your umbilical cord!

Our Approach

An open space at the intersection of theatre, dance and performance, where instruction and learning are combined with experimentation and praxis.

We see Tatwerk as a playground for contemporary approaches to the performing arts. In using the word playground, we voice our fundamental concern with pursuing approaches free of dogma and inhibition, in a space where our work can originate from − and aims to further elaborate on − the intersection of theatre, dance and performance.
We approach the performing arts from a bodily perspective. We believe that our strength and asset is the body, and our language is body movement. The body is stage and platform, medium and matter. Every performance is an enquiry into the aesthetics and boundaries of body strength and expression. In centering attention on the body, we aim to transcend the spoken word. Moreover, as a space for exploring post-dramatic theatre, we also engage in experiments that attempt to abandon the concept of drama altogether.
Tatwerk lives and breathes through the commitment, ideas and work of experts − scholars, performers, dancers, directors − and students alike. With everyone who participates in Tatwerk, we encourage the questioning of boundaries − personal, within the field, according to expectations and conventions − and the setting of new ones. We hope that experts and students will make themselves at home at Tatwerk, and work with us to transform the ways in which theatre, dance and performance − as well as Tatwerk as a space − are expressed and can develop in the future.
