KioSK 2012: A Performer´s complexity movement workshop Friday - Wednesday, 20. - 25. July 2012
Five-day workshop, focusing on development and cultivation of the performer´s personality, with aim on his physical training, coming from contemporary dance and physical theatre techniques. Five days of intense creative work under the guidance of two significant slovak creators: dancer and choreographer Jaro Viňarský nad actor and director Matej Matejka.
The workshop is consisting of two parts:
1. An intelligent performer´s body, 20. - 23. July, lecturer: Jaro Viňarský
Based on exercises, built on improvisational basis, we´ll try to define the specifics of physical work of an actor, dancer, performer.

2. The ritual and physical practices of a performer, 23. - 25. July, lecturer: Matej Matejka
How to keep physical body in a “tuned instrument” state, capable of complex and sharp expressions? By integral involvement of body and mind, the body becomes a shiny reflection of inner thoughts and a a channel for itself. By combining of dance, movement and acting techniques, we´ll try better to understand the connection between the body and the mind of an actor-dancer / performer.
