About Menelaos Prokos

 

About Charlotte De Metsenaere

At the age of 14, I was thrown into the impro field and it changed my life. 8 years later, I took over that impro school, turned my passion into my job, and started working as a freelance teacher, actress and director. Another 2 years later, I decided to start my own impro company called Zeggedis (Flemish for : 'Tell me!') to teach applied impro.

 

Nowadays, I perform with Inspinazie in Leuven, Swaajp in Antwerp, and get invited as a guest player for other Flemish and English groups. I direct and teach several groups throughout Flanders. Travelling abroad is a passion of mine. It means I got to work with lots of people and in lots of fields. Keith Johnstone, Nicki Flacks, Loose Moose Theater… My latest victories are becoming a part of Ohana since 2017, teaching at Big If 5 in 2018 and my future victory will be organizing the 10th Belgian festival Improovelicious.

 

Also… I like chocolate. I need stuff to be in the right place (my friends call me Monica), and I love people who see the beauty in everyday life.

CHARLOTTE'S WORKSHOPS

The Secret Clown

by Charlotte De Metsenaere

Wed, 20 Nov, 10am - 5pm

Venue: FLUX, 2nd floor, Above Burma Burma, Indiranagar, 12th main

4,000/- per person

Always wondered how clowning techniques can influence you as an improviser, without entering the stage as a clown? Rather than becoming a clown, this workshop is about what can clowning do to enhance your skills in expression, physical movement, working together non-verbally, and also being vulnerable, accepting the here and now and reconnecting with your scene partners to support them fully.

The biopsy of the MC

by Charlotte De Metsenaere

Fri, 22 Nov, 10am - 5pm

Venue: FLUX, 2nd floor, Above Burma Burma, Indiranagar, 12th main

4,000/- per person

There are people entering the room. Their voices are a soft, excited babble. You stand in the darkness. Unseen, unknown, anonymous. The buzz fades. The lights go out. A spotlight cuts through the dark. A moment of tension. Heartbeat rising, you step into the light. Here you are. The Master of Ceremonies, the MC, the glue that holds improvisation and the outside world together. The one responsible for making everyone feel comfortable. The one who prepares but never over-promises. No pressure. Most groups underestimate the importance of the MC. We focus on their script - what should be said, not how and why it needs saying. This workshop performs a biopsy on the MC, with topics ranging from body language to audience warm-ups, the role of the MC in internationally known improv formats, and also a closer look on you as an individual and how you come across. Ready to go under the microscope?
