Activities

Mask making in Berlin

Familie Flöz in cooperation with LISPA

9th – 18th January 2017 @ Studio Flöz, Berlin
led by Hajo Schüler

Mask making – like all activities in theatre and devised performance - is part of a multi-layered creative process. The mask maker is a creative artisan working at the intersection of the fine arts and the performing arts. This 10-day workshop will offer each participant the opportunity to create a self designed full mask from paper mache. In addition to an exploration of the craft of mask making, participants will be encouraged to develop a strong sense of creative ownership. Starting from their own initial ideas and designs, participants will search for their own form. They will develop a character all the way to a form modelled in clay before creating the full mask in paper mache. The entire process will be supported throughout via critical feedback and helpful advice.
Alongside technical information about the process of mask making, participants will learn about essential factors such as asymmetry, anatomy, mask as projection, light, etc., which help the mask to play on stage.
 
Hajo Schüler is actor, performer and mask maker, co-founder and artistic director of the company FAMILIE FLÖZ.
 
Dates: Monday 9 January - Wednesday 18 January 2017 in BERLIN (4pm - 8pm on weekdays - week-end times to be confirmed) The workshop takes place @ Studio Flöz, Berlin
 
Fee: €500 per person - all materials included. Spaces are limited.

Encounter with a mask

11 + 12 february 2017
led by Anna Kistel

How does a mask changes the performers body, breath, movement, awareness, even his heartbeat?
What is moving us by getting in touch with her, how does she becomes alive?
In this short, but intensiv workshop we will have the possibility to encounter with the character masks of Familie Flöz. Let the mask decides who you are!

Wie verändert sich der Körper, der Gang, die Atmung, die Wahrnehmung, ja sogar der Herzschlag wenn wir eine Maske aufsetzen? Wie begegnen wir ihr, wie wird sie lebendig und was bewegt sie in uns? An diesem kurzen, aber intensiven Wochenende haben wir die Möglichkeit den Flöz Masken individuell und intuitiv zu begegnen, sie lebendig zu machen und sie spielerisch zu bewegen. Lass die Maske entscheiden, wer Du bist!

Anna Kistel is performer and author in Familie Flöz' productions HOTEL PARADISO and GARAGE D'OR.

Dates: Saturday 11 + Sunday 12 february 2017, 10am - 6pm
Fee: €120 
Location: STUDIO FLÖZ, Lehderstr. 39-41, 13086 Berlin
Limited to 15 participants

Mask and Music

14-16 april 2017
led by Björn Leese

What happens when an actor puts on a mask? Which role can music play in developing a complex and vital figure?
In this three-day workshop, this connection is explored by means of improvisations with different character masks of Familie Flöz. Rhythm, breath and emotion are the essential pillars, which can be experienced even more directly by the interaction with the music and brought to a higher level.

Maske und Musik
Die Maske verändert den Darsteller, seine Möglichkeiten und Aufgaben wesentlich. Sich eine Maske aufzusetzen ist ein radikaler Akt, der viele Konsequenzen hat. Zunächst vermittelt die Maske das Gefühl eingeschränkt zu sein. Doch in dem Moment, in dem der Spieler sich mit dieser scheinbar unveränderlich festen Form verbindet, transformiert sich eben diese: Die Maske verliert ihre Starre und verschmilzt mit dem Körper des Spielers zu einer Einheit, einem ganz neuen Wesen. Die Zuschauer werden Zeugen, wie dieses Wesen zum Leben erwacht. Wie es neugierig in die Welt schaut, sich erschreckt, lacht, weint, sich ärgert... wie es beginnt zu agieren und zu reagieren.
Dieser Workshop widmet sich u.a. den folgenden Fragen: Welche Rolle können Klänge, Töne und Rhythmen spielen, um diesen feinen und fragilen Prozess des Entstehens und „Lebendigwerdens“ einer Maske/ Figur zu unterstützen? Wie kann Musik helfen eine Figur zu finden, diese zu klären und zu stärken? In einfachen Improvisationen mit den Charaktermasken von Familie Flöz wird der Verbindung von Maske und Musik auf den Grund gegangen. Rhythmus, Atem und Emotion werden durch Musik anders erlebbar und heben die Performance auf ein höheres Niveau.
 
Björn Leese is actor, musician and part of Familie Flöz since 1997.
