Ilta on osa Helsinki Burlesque Festivaalia ja esittelee kotimaan kiinnostavimmat tulokkaat. New Comers Night loi nahkansa ja BurleskInstituutti otti ohjat käsiinsä. Nämä tulokkaat on valittu monien joukosta ja ovat todella glitterin kiilto silmissään mukana nousemassa lavalle. Tule ja näe mitä tulevaisuus tuo tullessaan. Illan juontaa Bettie Blackheart.

Workshops / Työpajoja / Polttariohjelmaa

Heleijaa,

Burleskipaja polttareihin?

Tämän kesän ajat ovat jo suurelta osin meneet mutta joitakin aikoja löytyy vielä esim.

26.7. Elokuulle löytyy muutamia haja-aikoja. Kysy lisää Bettieb@helsinkiburlesque.com

————————————-

Täysteho työpaja Elokuussa:

VIKING GODDESS SUNNUNTAI Bettie Blackheartin kanssa
TÄYSTEHO SUPERPÄIVÄ!

Paja sopii kaikille sekä jo esiintyville että vasta-alkajille jos olet valmis laittamaan itsesi likoon ja sinusta tuntuu että burleski on intohimosi.

17.8.2014 klo 12-19 ( sis. tunnin tauon)

Paja jossa pyrkimyksenä on löytää paras itsesi esiintyjänä.

Miten löydät juuri sinun omat vahvuutesi?
Miten ylittää itsesi ja antaa mennä?
Mikä tyyli on sinulle ominta?

Oletko aikeissa esiityä? Esiinnytkö jo?
Mietitkö mikä on “oikein” ja mikä ei.

Koko päivä tiukkaa tekemistä,

Käydään läpi tiivistelmänä asustuksen niksejä, miten saat parhaat puolesti esiin? Miten asusi erottuu joukosta. Onko enemmän aina enemmän vai päinvastoin? Minkälainen asu on sinun kehotyypillesi paras?

Lavameikin perusteet tiivistelmänä sisältäen kehomaskeerauksen.

Tehdään kehollisia harjoituksia, etsitään tasapainoa ja sinulle ominaista liikekieltä. Käydään läpi myös erilaisia rentoumiskeinoja ennen esitystä.

Ilmeet ja eleet; ilmeet ovat tärkeä osa burleskiesitystä. Miten saat rentoutettua kasvosi ja miten ilmeistäsi tulee luonteva osa esitystä. Mikä on sensuellia, mikä on seksikästä, mikä on hauskaa?

Miten saada esitys soljumaan?

( pajan opetusmateriaalina, kuvat ja videot, keholliset harjoitteet, keskustelu, ohjattu improvisaatio)

Pajan hinta 65 euroa, sis opetusmateriaalia

Ilmoittautuminen spostilla bettieblackheart@gmail.com
