9th El Haddawi International Winterschool 2008/09

27th December 2008 − 1st January 2009

The Sacred Actor / The Sacred Actress

Beyond the Role-Play

We are pleased to announce the 8th annual El Haddawi Winterschool. It will take place from December 27th 2008 to January 1st 2009 at the island convent "Abtei Frauenwörth" on the lake Chiemsee in Bavaria, Germany. El Haddawi in cooperation with Feldenkrais Studio Farnbacher invites you to experience a confluence of theaterwork, dance and bodywork as an expression of practical spirituality. With Ingo Taleb Rashid, Thomas Farnbacher and the following guestlecturers:

  • Joe Martin (USA),
    Director and Faculty Associate, Theatre Arts and Studies Program, Johns Hopkins University, Baltoimore, USA.
    THE TOWER OF BABEL - Body, Language and Acting
  • Amiyo Devienne (France),
    Choreographer, Dancer, Teacher of Gurdjeff Movements together with
    Chetan Greenberg (Moldavia),
    Opera-Singer, Teacher of Gurdjeff Movements
    BEHIND THE MASK - a dance-theatre/voice workshop

The art of acting exists in the theatre - and in daily life, but in daily life it exists mostly unconsciously. Since early childhood we adapt role-playing to cope with trauma, insecurity and solitude. How can we bring this unconscious talent into consciousness? How can we utilize the potential of the actor within ourselves to discover ourselves and finally to overcome our role-playing?

Through exercises from different spiritual traditions, acting schools and bodywork systems, we will use our bodies as gates to open and experience our inner spaces. Acting, Dance, Movement Improvisation, as well as elements from the Martial Arts, will open new levels of practical experience for body, spirit and soul.

In addition to seminars taught by Ingo Taleb-Rashid and Thomas Farnbacher, there will be classes and lecture-demonstrations taught by the invited lecturers. There will also be an opening ceremony, performance and sacred music concert. Accommodation and meals will be provided on site.

The fee for tuition for the whole seminar will be € 440 (starting with the opening at 27/12 at 16.00, ending at 01.01 after lunch) including all classes, lectures and special events.
Fees for accommodation, meals and transportation are separate.
Early registration (until 18th of Nov. 2008) and payment of the Non-refundable deposit of € 200 will reduce tuition to € 380.
