BODY & ANIMATION — live cinema-performance workshop

13.10. – 19.10.2014 / 18:00 – 20:00 / WASP

Suited for: 11-13 years old
Duration: 1 week
Trainers: Karla Kracht & Andrés Beladiez
Photography: Andrés Beladiez

Throughout a week, this workshop will approach digital, analogue and corporal techniques and technologies nowadays, introducing young students to the creative universe of scenic live stop-motion creation. Moving away from the exclusive use of computers, we will use objects, live drawing and body movement to creat real time animations on the spot. We will talk about live video and what it is. We will talk about and experience processes, concepts and techniques to create a live performance from the first idea to the final realisation and we will stimulate the creativity of each participant. We will have serious fun and we will present our results to the wide public in the end.

Karla Kracht works as a video, illustration and animation artist. She collaborates with musicians, architects, dance companies, other video artists, programmers, and sometimes design & advertising agencies. Her video installations & performances have been exhibited in various places across Europe, South America and Asia.

Having graduated in stage direction and dramaturgy, Andrés Beladiez incorporates the use of technology as a tool for the scenic narration in his plays. He complements his artistic work with cultural management, artistic advice for festivals, companies and programming structures.

Workshop in the frame of Performance Situation Room, a Life Long Burning activity, a project funded by the Culture Programme of the European Union.
