BIF week 2018

The wealth of diversity

Here's the idea of this six-day workshop series: 6 instructors from 6 countries teach you the core of their very personal understanding of impro. The personality of the teacher is not to withdraw behind the content, but be part of the content. And these instructors are waiting for you:

 

Gilles Delvaulx (Brussels / Belgium)

Gilles Delvaulx

»For me what really matters on stage is to play something: an emotion, a character or both. And the second aspect is to be here and now with yourself, your partner(s) and the audience.«

     

Antonio Vulpio (Bologna/Italy)

Antonio Vulpio»Improv is flexibility: we cannot force the universe to improvise with us. The only choice is improvise with the universe. It’s funnier if we do it joyfully.«

     

Heather Urquhart (London/UK)

Heather Urquart»I love improvisation that can make me laugh, cry and think from moment to moment and stories on stage that have humanity even if it’s a scene between a cup and a spoon. I believe this art form has the potential to change lives because of the magic of true collaboration.«

     

Monica Anastase (Bucharest/Romania)

Monica Anastase»I teach improv as joyous discovery, as opposed to ambitious invention. I believe improv is at its best when improvisers make less effort, not more, and lead from the right rather than the left brain.«

     

Marta Borges (Lisbon/Portugal)

Marta Borges»For me on stage it is all about real emotions, rich characters grounded with truthful situations, with drama, comedy, silence and physicality, laying together organically in the scenes, without fighting. I’m always committed to search for beauty and metaphors while playing with my partners in the scene, trying to help the group to be one team.«

     

Mia Møller (Copenhagen/Denmark)

Mia Moeller»I believe improv is living moment to moment, trust and no fear of what comes next.«
