Performance Making Masterclass

2-day intensive workshop taking place over the 21 - 22 April
Saturday 21st 9.30 am - 5.30 pm
Sunday 22nd 10 am - 7 pm

To create a performance that is not based on dramatic text is a particular challenge. There is not a long tradition and specialisation in Performance Making like in theatre, where the playwright writes, the director directs and the actors act. Overcoming those traditional structures is liberating and opens up many exciting possibilities. This masterclass is an invitation to use this freedom and explore ways of creating original work.

On Saturday morning Ralf will give a practical introduction to Stanislavski’s Method of Physical Action, Meyerhold’s Biomechanics and Grotowski’s Training.
These are the foundations for a performer’s work, useful in both text-based and non-text based productions. The afternoon is dedicated to principles and strategies in Performance Making. All of Sunday is about creating your own work (solo or in groups) and presenting it at the end. Guests are welcome.

Ralf Rauker studied acting in Berlin, worked with Jerzy Grotowski and took part in the „International School of Theatre Anthropology“ directed by Eugenio Barba.
He is a renowned specialist on Meyerhold’s Biomechanics – a psycho-physical actors training, with 30 years of research & teaching experience in this field and has directed/devised more than 20 theatre/performance projects.

In 2003 Ralf moved from Berlin to Perth in WA to teach at WAAPA and ECU, where he received his PhD on Bertolt Brecht’s play Baal.
He is currently working as a coach/trainer in theatre/performance and film in Australia, South East Asia and Europe.
