Embracing your Character

How do you develop a character? How do you transform from yourself to a person who is very different from you? If you make the choice to be the parent/ the queen/ the beggar in the scene, how much do you committ to this specific point of view onto the world? How much do you believe it yourself? And are you enjoying it?

Elke works with various exercices to really go to your own inner imagination suitcase. She takes time for everyone personally to reach an inner level of your individual way to approach a character. Together with her participants she will discover layer after layer to build an alive and strong person to play on stage. All her exercices are about voice, body and heart.

Together with Elke you will explore the process of becoming someone else on stage. She supports your way of going there and brings in some of her own approach to help you find some new ways to discover all the persons you can be. If you want to rent your body and mind to a character, she will accompany you to help you find his or her story.
