Halka Třešňáková: Neutral presence on the stage versus strong expression

WORKSHOP. This is a physical theater workshop creating short choreographies exploring structure and movement cuts for dancers/actors. Halka Třešňáková is an actress, choreographer, and a pedagogue.

In this three hour long workshop Halka will introduce her theatrical approach in the genre of physical theatre. Participants will start with warm up and technical exercises.  Then they will be taught short physical choreographies in which they will use their own creative abilities as well as new tools, like structure and movement cuts. The workshop will be followed by a short discussion with the participants where Halka will give professional feedback. This workshop is designed for dancers, actors but also all participants with strong interest in their body and its functions. Wear comfortable cloths and socks.

Currently she is working as movement choreographer at City Theater Brno on the performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, where she explores new ways to find a stage language for the movement of an autistic boy and the reactions towards him from the outside world.
