Please register until October 23rd by E-mail
Lukas Wiesner, Graduate of the french circus school Le Lido, will hold a stage presence workshop inVienna! This two-day workshop takes place from 13:00 until 18:00 and is open for all (circus)disciplines (including aerials, dance, theatre, etc.) Stage experience is obliged! The workshop is targeted towards artist with a professional ambition, who are in a creation process at the moment oder want to work on their stagepresence in general.
During the workshop, every participant will present his or her piece twice a day to the other participants. This can be an existing act, work in process or any kind of improvisation. This also means that circusartist are not limited to circusacts, but can present anything possible. After the first presentation, the idea, vision and intention will be explained, then the other participants will provide feedback. In this way, all participants will be included in the artistical creation of the others. Helping and accepting help is something which is commonly ignored in the artistic process. Nevertheless, this is one of the most effective ways of artistical creation. Being confronted with your own limits, but also your specialities and strengths, learn to watch others and to summarize what we really see and not what we interpretate are the keywords to this workshop.
Not only will the moment on stage be shared, but also the creative process behind it. Because being an artist means to live from the art of sharing.

2 Days / 4 h daily intensive workshop, 60€ / 1 day or 80€ / 2 Tage, max. 15 participants
Registration until 20.06. via e-mail
The workshop includes a general introduction to stickball, technical work (basics, tricks and flow), group work (circle games and variations) and creativity work (developing personal moves and methods and mixing stickball with other manipulation techniques).
Participants of all levels are welcome and gear will be provided.
Stickball (also known as Stykball) originated in Brisbane's West End (Australia). It is a form of ball and stick manipulation where the stick becomes an extention of the body, balancing, spinning and throwing an oversize tennisball. It incorporates elements of dance, acrobatics, hakeysak, body rolling, contact juggling, staff manipulation and juggling.
Even thoughStickball can be approached, trained and performed as a very skillfull form of 2 objects manipulation, the initial spirit is a more communicative one:
Stickball developed as a non-competitive freestyle multi-player game, usually played with 2- 9 players. The players stand in a circle all holding sticks, usually broom handles. They then pass a giant tennis ball to each other by rolling it along the stick and launching it. The objective of the game is to keep the ball flowing. Each player is unique in their technique. The game involves smoothly moving the ball from one person to another using the ball and the stick, never hitting the ball but rather keeping contact and balancing, gracefully guiding and redirecting the movement of the ball.
The game is cooperative rather than competitive and is beautiful to watch. There are no fixed rules, so it leaves a lot of room for creativity and allows players of any skill level to join or leave the circle at any time, it is also possible to use other objects or body roles to guide the ball. The spirit of the game is one of fairness and co-operation.
During the last decade since its invention the complexity of tricks and skills of the players has increased a lot and stickball has gained in popularity all over the world.
The Australian Caleb Trott has been playing and developing Stickball for over 10 years and has been running workshops for the past 3 years in Europe and Australia.
29.06.-01.07.2012 Masterclass workshop with Carlos Munoz, Vienna, Austria
3 days / 5h daily, intensive workshop, 100€ p.p., max. 15 participants
Registration until 19.06. via e-mail
The focus of the 3 day intensive research laboratory led by Carlos Munoz focuses on movement analysis and the discovery of dynamics of body and object.
During the 5 hours of class every day the participants will explore relations between object and body, movement and manipulation and research creative forms of physical expression and object manipulation.
The labaratory aims towards a creative process that rather trusts the intelligence of (physical) instinct than the reflection generally preceding the act of creation.
The object used in the process are balls, clubs and rings, it therefore is advised to have at least an intermediate level in one of the disciplines and/ or experience in dance or physical theatre.
Carlos Munoz is a chilenian artist and object manipulator, who studied at the International School of Image and Gestur, La Mancha in antiago, Chile and later graduated from the prestigious circus school Lido in Toulouse, France. His ambition is to develop a universal visual physical language. He is constantly experementing ways to fuse physical theater, dance and object manipulation.
