Dan Seyfried 

I practice theater for 20+ years and improv for 10+ years. Since 2014 I participate regularly in International festivals, playing and teaching this lovely artform.. I adore all kind of improv, whether it's short, long or free form, When I can see the connection between the partners , the pleasure to play and truthful emotions, I can only enjoy! I travel the world with my group La Carpe Haute and our show Just Play.  I also have some great duos with Alicja Dobrowolna (You&Me), Ella Galt (Origami Swan), Kaspars Breidaks (Each Other) and Gael Perry (D&G)

Workshops Description:

NEW The Power of a Silent Line

"bla bla bla, bla bla bla". That's what a scene too often looks like. As improvisers, we often fear the silence because we think that nothing is happening anymore. That's not true ! Many times silence is the best line we can tell ! 
More than 70% of the communication goes trough our body and our behaviour. Isn't it a proof that words can be useless ? Our actions, our look, our emotions, tell so much. And silence build the tension and catch audience…
Don't panic, we'll talk in this workshop ! But we'll also learn to answer by silence. A living, deep and powerful silence, meaning much more than a verbal line…


Level : intermediate to professional

SOLD OUT Atomic Improv

 

We are made of molecules. They react to each other, they have no choice. Most of the time, we know what will happen, but sometimes, it's a surprise !
What if our way of playing would be like that ? Without thinking but just doing because we know what we have to do...or not !
In this workshops, we'll train to do. Just do. Experiment and see what happens, essentially through body movement and emotional reactions. First, we'll train to react in a predetermined way and have fun with that. And step by step, letting ourselves to be more and more free and surprised !

SOLD OUT Unplug Your Brain

Our brain is a formidable machine to create and imagine, but sometimes it's our own trap, our only barrier and then, we can have the feeling to work on the scene rather to enjoy it…
This workshop aims at unplugging our brains, to explore what our bodies have to suggest. We will train not to be heady or too rational, to allow your scenes to be silly, to accept and play the nonsense. Let your bodies surprise yourself and embrace their strong propositions, to just have fun, play like kids, discover new places, characters and relations, to follow the inspiration and your instinct.
