HAZEL'S WORKSHOPS

Out of our minds and into our bodies

by Hazel Salminen

Sun, 24 Nov, 10am - 5pm

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

4,000/- per person

This workshop focuses on how we can learn to listen to the cues from the body instead of only the mind. We will explore impulses from the body, as well as different states of awareness and tension as a basis for character work. By being instead of thinking, doing instead of acting, we then dive into scenes, body first.

Eek! Improvisation for your nerves

by Hazel Salminen

Tue, 19 Nov, 10am - 5pm

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

4,000/- per person

Do you avoid or dislike getting in front of an audience, because your heart is pounding, your stomach is turning, and the words get stuck in your throat? This could be at a presentation at work, or even in social situations. At this engaging workshop, we’ll explore what it means to be nervous. Why do we get stage fright? Why do some social situations stress us out? Can we make it bearable or even enjoyable? We’ll share tips and look at how our bodies and minds work, in order to soothe our nerves and even welcome them (a bit)! The workshop is for everyone who wishes to be more comfortable in situations that give them the shakes: presentations, public speaking, social situations -- basically, doing things in front of people. NB! Applied improv workshop for the larger public, i.e. non-improvisers.
