  • Danielle Orantia

    My practice pushes the boundaries between improvisation and physical theatre, bringing elements of clowning, mime, comics and painting as tools for expression and storytelling. I have been designing workshops and directing shows for different groups and festivals around the world.

    Additionally I have run design workshops for schools with young children and teenagers from different countries and backgrounds. As a performer, I have toured the world with Speechless an improvised show without words. I am constantly creating collaboration projects with various groups and individuals looking for new, original ways of performing.

    I founded and currently run a company called PICNIC, specialised in creating devised work, collaborating with different artists who bring inspiration from specialist areas. With this group I run an international Improv theater festival called the MONKEY FEST which has brought world known improvisers to Colombia during the last 7 years.

Topics

  • Close to You (days 1, 2, 5 and 6)

    Rama Nicholas

    This workshop is very close to my heart and has been taught with great acclaim from participants and festival organizers here in Australia, London, Amsterdam, Toronto, Wurzburg, Berlin, Gothenburg and Rome.

    The overall themes of the workshop are - Romantic love, sex and intimacy in relationships and how can we apply these concepts to our improvisation without wimping out, freaking out or freaking your partner out!
    How do we give our audience the gift of a truly romantic love scene/story whether it be hilarious or serious.
    How do we electrify them with our performers sexual energy without being explicit!!
    How do we break their hearts like Shakespeare did in Romeo and Juliet?
    How can we create that kind of intensity in our impro?
    Why don’t we ever hear honest conversations around sex in our scenes?
    We see it all the time in film, theatre and in music, why not impro!

    My idea is to create a relaxed and safe environment were performers can explore these concepts in scene work. I created this workshop because I felt like there was a need for the exploration of this work after seeing so many scenes wimped out on when it came to performer commitment to love scene.

    The workshop is designed to help improvisers explore their fears around intimacy on stage, practice their acting skills when it comes to love scene’s, build trust and break down barriers with an ensemble and impro partners. I ask improvisers to share their fears around performing intimate scenes. I challenge them to separate themselves from their character to be able to fulfil their characters journey. I always assure improvisers; I never push people into anything they are not ready for. After some discussion around the idea of love, sex and intimacy (we also discuss how to stage kiss) we go through a series of heart-warming exercises designed to build trust, playfulness and intensity in energy. Then we run through a series of scenes based around relationships - from love at first sight, taking someone home, kissing scenes (this is as far as physical intimacy goes in the workshop!) confessions of love, husband/wife or life partners, to elderly love, dealing with losing love, breakups, cheating, rejected in love and forgiveness in relationships.

    Performing love scenes is a skill like any other that can be learned, it just takes trust, bravery, honesty, a willingness to be vulnerable and a willingness to take risks that perhaps you have never taken before.

  • Come together (day 3 and 4)

    Danielle Orantia
    Supporting and challenging your scene partners enriches both the way you play and the audience experience. In order to do this, you need to take care, inspire, surprise and sometimes push, poke, provoke and even compete with your scene partners in exciting ways.

    This workshop explores ways to engage with others with the aim of building together in a playful and caring way and ultimately giving everyone a chance for fulfilling improvised moments.
