Introduction in the work of Jan Fabre: ‘From Act to Acting’’
A physical workshop for performers (actors and dancers) about the possibilities for transformation. Exploring possibilities to change from a talking head to a thinking body.
The contemporary performer unites performance, theatre, and dance. Fabre always looks for physical impulses in and on the bodies of his performers and stimulates them to act on stage on the basis of those ‘real’ physical sensations. Fabre uses the expression ‘from act to acting’ to describe that process: the real physical impact (tension, pain stimulus, exhaustion, etc.)
