Wie finde ich meinen ganz persönlichen Ausdruck?
Wie kann ich authentisch mit meinem Publikum kommunizieren?


Mit elementarem Schauspieltraining, speziellen Übungen zu den Gebieten Mimik, Gestik und Bewegung, Einführung in die Atemarbeit und konkreter Arbeit am Ausschnitt eines Werkes sollen emotionale Lebendigkeit der Interpretation mit höchster Individualität des Ausdrucks und der Präsentation erreicht werden.
