Mime Studio of Bartlomiej Ostapczuk
The Mime Studio at the Warsaw Mime Center would like to invite everyone to theatre classes which are held 3 times a week.
The classes are based on modern mime art and include:
Classical pantomime, The elements of the E.Decroux technique, Body comedy / drama, Composition, Acting tasks,
Improvisation, Physical theatre from the perspective of contemporary mime art.
The classes held at the studio comprise a variety of exercises divided into different categories. From basic body grammar, through its various forms which appeared in the last few decades, to the completely modern form of mime theatre.
The basic principle which should govern mime theatre is a skilled combination of thoughts, emotions and actions.
By exploring specific exercises, we will aim to experience, feel and, as a result, to understand that.
The classes also consist in analysing movements, our emotional states and the way they are demonstrated.
The art of mime theatre is not just theatre without words, it is theatre which operates outside of words thus giving the actor unlimited possibilities for expression.
The Mime Studio at the Na Woli Theatre allows you to discover the secrets of mime art and to experience the art which uses the body for expression.
Students who will become particularly involved in the classes run by the Studio will be invited to take part in the productions of the Warsaw Mime Centre.
Selected participants will be also given the opportunity to join the Mime Theatre of the Warsaw Mime Centre at the Na Woli Theatre, or to receive an invitation to take part in international theatre projects.
The Mime Studio holds classes at various levels.
We would like to invite also those of you who have not yet had any experience of mime theatre.
