Katakrak, formed in 2005, is a street art company that bases its work on three main areas: creativity, recycling and play. In their workshop they select and manipulate objects or materials from discarded industrial waste or household gadgets to make them original and unique.

The aim is to come up with a game that combines the characteristics of the object chosen for reuse and an idea or an effect that will challenge the player.

This workshop will focus on how we interact with the urban landscape, combining elements of parkour and contemporary dance.

Using physical skill-building and simple partnering exercises, the workshop participants will learn techniques for performing in public spaces.

The workshop is designed for all skill levels.

You would think that performing in a narrow space is a piece of cake. Unfortunately, however, one false step and you mess things up.

In this workshop we would like to focus on three issues:

Character. We will develop a theatrical character based on your own physical features. Becoming aware of your own body is a must.

Observation. In a wordless performance, the audience is taken along for a ride in the characters ´ stream of thoughts. To achieve this, it is important for an actor to see the nature of this stream of thoughts very clearly.

Space & relationship. What happens when someone enters a room unexpectedly? And what if that room is not big enough for two, let alone for three or more people?
