LAUREN RAE MACE
community workshop / 18 +
when: 6th – 9th july 2017 / 5:30pm – 6:45pm
where: Berlin, Germany
how does the theatrical body shape thought? how can one express an idea physically without using concrete pantomime? in th!nkbod theatrics mace introduces a new imaginative awareness to revealing abstract and universal ideas using the basic principals of the corporeal mime techinique fused with free theatrical improvisations.
we will use dramatic principals such as: hesitation, weight, resistance, contradiction and surprise in order to transform our ideas into the physcial experience. we will not only focus on the body in it’s reflection of thought, but will also work later with some text and also investigate what happens when our hands and our faces play a secondary role to the expression of our physical experience.
we will delve into improvisations and short choreographies based upon the principals which we learn, share our ideas by making the immaterial, material and think, th!nkbod!
this outreach project is free of charge!
originally from the united states, mace began seriously persuing her dance & performance career in her early teens at interlochen arts academy. after graduating from high school, she continued contemporary dance and choreographic studies at california institute of the arts. after two years of studies at calarts, mace decided to set the dance career aside and began focusing instead on conceptual performance art and playing music from 2005-2009 in los angeles. realizing she had an ´itch’ to move again, mace headed to london in 2009 to persue intensive two years studies in the niche form of corporeal mime and the international school for corporeal mime.
afterwards mace continued to work on the creative team at the supperclub in london as well as persuing her performance art and music before she was invited to audition for johannes wieland in 2013. mace returned to the dance world after accepting the first of three guest contracts with johannes wieland at the staatstheater in kassel where she now resides as the rehearsal director since 2015.
mace has worked with and for other artists such as johannes wieland, chris haring stella zannou, felix landrerer and tal shani among others.
