Our Autumn OASIZ Theatre Workshop with co-director Jepke Goudsmit is on in May.
OASIZ is a meeting place for performers and creative folk of all disciplines, who feel the need for nourishment and deep listening. Structured around a range of themes, skills and perspectives, OASIZ zooms in to the personal instrument of the performer (our body, voice, breath, mind, imagination), and aims to unlock gateways to the authentic creative self.
Keywords describing the nature of the work:
Playfulness, mindfulness, inquiry. Eccentricity, intuition, quest, intimacy. Rawness, sophistication, originality. Transformation, surrender, dissent.
Jepke: “I am driven by the urgency of our times, the need to reset our compass. I am delving deep into my reservoir of knowledge and experience, gained during my multi-facetted work for the Company (together with co-director Graham Jones, for over thirty years), and prior to that, through my work as core member (for eight years) of the international Research Theatre Group KISS, and before that, my extensive studies at Jerzy Grotowski’s Theatre Laboratory in Poland. This artistic trajectory has provided me with a legacy too precious not to share with performance makers of this time.
Apart from being a joint learning process, the OASIZ project could become a platform for performance. I have some ideas in mind for a piece about balancing on the knife edge…”
