"It's Our Intuition" - Directed by Anne Meffert
Find your personal theme through improvising, spoken word slam and short abstract performances!
How do you wash yourself?
Since we were brought up, nobody checked anymore on how we wash ourselves. Since then everybody does it on his own way.
We start from there, with banalities of the every day life.
How do you kiss your mother?
Do you kiss your father?
We ask each other a lot of questions. We ask ourselves a lot of questions.
We start to improvise on the theatre floor, with questions that hit us the most, we use different excercises and techniques, but most important, use our intuition.
Through improvising we come to spoken word.
We write spoken words slams.
We use them for shor abstract performances.
And we find our personal theme.
Write further on the personal theme.
Speak and use speech technicques.
It's all about repeating.
It's all an intuition game.
