11:15 - 13:15 Uhr WS 1 A Specialty: Integration of Acting and Singing
  Brian Hurley

“I was always a singer and a dancer, and I always wanted to be an actress. For me, it’s all just one thing.” - Jennifer Lopez

“The acting is part of the technique.” - Keith Davis

We create the “life” of the play or song using the raw materials of our body, psyche and values. Our individual technique and style is a consequence of everything we’ve internalized from our personal history. This includes the totality of our experiences, education, training and creativity. Sports psychology suggests that we manage the things we can manage rather than those we can’t and that we attend to “the next thing” that needs to be done. The workshop is designed to help you develop and utilize a set of tools that apply to both acting and singing in order to integrate what might seem like different techniques into one unified way of approaching performance.

16:00 - 17:30 Uhr WS 1 D: Fundamentals of Movement and Dance   Brian Hurley

“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.” - Martha Graham

"I do not know what the spirit of a philosopher could more wish to be than a good dancer. For the dance is his ideal, also his fine art, finally also the only kind of piety he knows: his divine service.” - Friedrich Nietzsche

Movement is not only our birthright but is an essential part of life. Most movements in our daily life appear automatic, but, examined more closely, one finds that they are a consequence of biological impulse, evolutionary defaults and habit. Each body has a unique physiognomy which creates both limitations and opportunities to explore. This Workshop begins with Body Awareness and leads to learning the basic steps from which what we term “Dance” is derived.
