Nikola’s Theatre

Theme: "Legend of the royal source"
The theme of the workshop and after workshop presentation will be "Legend of the royal source" from which water drank the king Wladyslaw Jagiello. Cold and crystalline water had healing properties, which knew the local peasants. Through theater movement we will create with a workshop group the scenes that show the magical power of this source. Appears a sad, poor and sick girl who through drinking water from the source recovered and met a man who surrounded her with a love so great that the joy sprang from her depths.

Watered apple tree bring the unusual juice, grapes which previously gave paltry yields, bring extensive amount at the lovers wedding, also a tasty wine.
Elegant table watered and fed all the guests and spring water, which appeared also in pure form, gave strength and energy helping to further miracles convincing about its magical power.

Workshops include elements of pantomime, acrobatics, juggling, dance improvisation, improvisation with partner and object to classical music, modern music, jazz, word music etc. Diversity of offered elements gives participants the availability to wake their own bodies and to start up their creative potential of fabricating interesting characters by organic movement, gesture and face expression.
The aim is to open youth for searching development opportunities within diverse fields of art. The essence is deriving inspiration from them, and using it for creating a new work.
The effect of workshop is ability to start theatrical improvisation, search for own, individual style as well as mantaining easy, uninhibited behaviour in given situation, which gives profit not only onstage, but also in daily life. Main idea is the openess for endless searching
Working sessions will be led by Mikołaj Wiepriew dir. Nikola Theatre
