1. Physical and vocal training
This course will explore the research the Bridge of Winds has been developing for almost 30 years. It focuses on five types of exercises to develop a range of qualities for the performer to work in performative scoring processes.
All exercises aim to find a flow of energies that allows the performer to engage and interact with space, rhythm, intensities and other performers.
The students work carefully on the preparation of physical actions, through exercises they learn to master and manipulate according to their own poetics.
The principles approached will be developed further in the creation of performing scores connected to music and text, as the vocal universe of the group expands and incorporate the different sources of sound the body in its whole can produce.





 2. Clown
Introduction to the language of clown.In this course we will work on the basis for the development of your own clown, transforming difficulties, mistakes and failures we find along the way into creative tools. This is a collective study, where the spectators become a fundamental piece of the process.
This workshop is intended for beginners and advanced students looking for new approaches to clowning and physical work. Participants with previous experience are welcome to bring their own costume.And if you happen to play any instrument, please bring it along!
