  • Michaela Dudek

    Michaela managed her debut on stage in the first grade with snow-white and the other six dwarfs…. .
    Professional and artistical activities interconnected with each other from early on: she studied music and languages, worked as a personal trainer and was teaching for five years in schools and at university. On the way of inspiration and development she finally met Improv in 2010 and extended her profile by studying once more: theatre. Meanwhile she had already sung in musicals herself and set up musicals with kids, held seminars at university and taught in schools, had coached managers in dizzying heights, moderated, produced intercultural trainings, was a band member for some years, performed in different theatre projects, accompanied people to achieve their training goals, travelled different continents, organized and led events and gave off her driving license three times.

    Since 2015 she totally focuses on Improv and it’s approaches occupationally. She is member of holterdiepolter!, an Improv group in Nürnberg, and participates other improv groups as well. Since 2014 she is part of the Improhotel and since 2017 host of the International Impro-Hotel workshops on majorca. You can find the native bavarian girl in Nürnberg or traveling in the name of improv, prepared to cause chaos, subsequently creating a mess true to the device: my heart is leaking: love is running out!

Workshops

All courses for participants with 3 years of improv experience.

workshop block 1 (sunday & monday)

Works for me - Pedro Borges (Level A)

In this workshop I will share my Impro toolbelt with the participants. After looking back at my years of Improvisation and a self-reflection of the techniques that I often use onstage, I came up with the idea of just honestly sharing each of those tools, hoping that some of them will also be useful for other improvisers. "Time, Status, Zoom, Repercusion, Emotion, Truth, Why" are names i gave to some of the tools in my belt. I will explain how each of them is useful for me and participants will be playing and exploring the potential of each one, in exercises and scenes.

Inspired by the sun - Franck Buzz (Level B)

The lights around us give us energy and rythm to our lifes. In the "LightboX" show, a very unique and innovative format created by Franck BuzZ, performers let them be inspired by the lights around, like we all do with the sun everyday.
« LightboX » has been played in more than 10 differents countries and with a lot of international famous improvisers : Patti Stiles, Joe Bill, Lee White, Inbal Lori, Felipe Ortiz, Susan Messing …
facebook.com/improlightbox
The related workshop « Inspired by the sun / Play with Lights » helps to understand how lights can become your partner on stage and opens new possibilities for stage work (with or without
lights) : create powerful images, give and take the focus, be connected without eye-contact, play the obvious, play with more simplicity, trust relationships and emotions before words.
Inspired by the « Lightbox » format, you will play in several lighting and video atmospheres to enter in a new universe of fantasy and poetry. Unique experience ! guaranteed fun!
This workshop is intended for people who'd like to:

  • trust themselves, trust their partners, trust the audience!
  • make bold choices
  • play the obvious
  • explore new stage work

workshop block 2 (tuesday & wednesday)

Feelings - Michaela Dudek (Level A)

i feel feelings! Emotions are closely connected to our body. To our body language. Our posture and physical expression is determined by emotions. But where is this emotion internally located while being sad or happy? How do I play to be angry or delighted from a physical point of view? Where is jealousy sitting and how is love moving? We'll develop our performing skills based on four basic emotions who all have their own balance point inside ourselves. We’ll find out more about the relation of feelings and attitude. First we’ll set the emotional anchor, then we’ll put words.

Reality levels - Omar Galvan (Level B)

"IN THE MAGIC REALISM  MOOD" An Omar’s pure research.

Omar Argentino Galvan shares his particular and evolving work always researching dramaturgy paths and performing resolutions not generally explored in the improv. The poetic movement. The Magic Realism as an excuse and inspiration to learn and generate a new mood to play. Ghosts, the not living character, the reelection of empty space, reality planes, imaginary object 2.0.A key workshop to discover and understand a Latin American style of improvisation as a theatrical expression.

workshop block 3 (thursday & friday)

2 formats - Pedro Borges (Level B)

2 days, 2 formats. Let's just play as if we needed to prepare and perform a show in each day! In the morning session we will learn the form, train techniques that will help us play in that style; and in the afternoon will test and finally play the format. How fun is that!?

First format The Trip, a group form that relies on a strong group mind, physicality, transformation and editing.

The second format is Game Show Life, a longform disguised as a television quiz-show. The format allows for players and audience to discover the character’s background throughout the contest, while they have a lot of fun trying to “win” the show and get the final prize!

Yes, but... - Omar Galvan (Level B)

What is beyond “YES, AND”? In every story there’s a “but”, a conflict. We will discover that and reread certain bases of the Improv, o be more sophisticated in our way to play. New poetics.

From the empty to almost everything. We will put the microscope in the absolute present, at the moment when improvisation happens. Practical exercises that aim to dissect the instant. Point of view. Structures for drama and comedy.

The focus will be in your improvised lines and actions, word-by-word, movement-by-movement, the subtle emotion, the latent history. If the Impro is a living organism, we will go to its DNA.

A practical and minimalist workshop in which you will play with subtle physical, intellectual and emotional movements.
