Workshop with Sanja Tasic for actors and dancers

POETRY OF MOVEMENT-a workshop on devised performing arts techniques

Sanja K.Tasić


Starting with different exercises of centering, breathing, being, being together, moving, experiencing and perceiving, traveling inside ones self, traveling through space together with others, warming up the voice and body through work developed from the physical vocabulary of each individual, the workshop will focus on creating different materials from which a devised performance, or performance art piece can be created.

The participants will together pass the process of creating physical scores, and vocal sound-scapes that will be later edited or montaged into scenes.

The participants will work on themes that deeply move them and affect them, articulating them into artistic expression, both in solo etudes and ansamble work, in the same time developing self-awareness and defining their role and place as artists in this world and in the 21 st century.

Expect dedication, commitment and also a lot of laughter and joy, and moments of deep connection and contemplation.

Based on techniques of Eastern European laboratory theatre, and the 20 th Century masters of contemporary theatre and dance, different martial art techniques, and also unique theatre/dance techniques developed by Sanja Krsmanovic Tasic after more than 30 years of dedicated work in the realm of performing art and dance.

She believes that work in the realm of performing arts is a part of cleansing and “ecology of the soul”, as she calls her original methodology.

Hleb teatar

Created as an “essay in movement’ with scenes interlaced with footnotes, this dynamic, interactive and lively performance tells the story of an actors/dancers/directors journey into the world of whirling. Whirling as a skill has been developed, researched and practically executed through imaginative ways in different performances and scenes by Sanja KrsmanovićTasić  in a span of 25 years. The last part dwells in the world of the origin of the form, the sufi Dervish world of Mevlana Rumi, his poetry and life.
