Please note: the Winterschool activities will be given in Dutch.
‘How did you come up with this?’ A question many people ask themselves after visiting a Schweigman& production. Come and take a peek behind the scenes during our one-day or three-day masterclass the Winterschool, 11, 12 and 13 March. Learn in a playful way to let go of reasoning and to trust your body.
Why take part?
Although you may not consider your daily activities as creative, you spend a large part of the time creating something. Whether it concerns an ambiance in your own home, a product or service at work, or a relationship with the people around you. How do you stay creative in these processes? During the master class you will train your ability to accept that some processes do not work out as planned, and learn how to transform this into a strength. Follow your intuition and remain receptive to ‘that which presents itself’, as Schweigman& does when creating new work.
Two options are available:
1) Winterschool Basis on Wednesday 11 March
Learn more about the vision and working methods of Schweigman& with plenty of opportunity for questions. We link this theory to elementary (game) exercises through which you will experience the working methods at first hand.
Who for? Anyone who is interested in Schweigman& theatre performances.
Where? Het Huis Utrecht in Utrecht, Boorstraat 107, 3513SE Utrecht

2) Winterschool Intensive on Wednesday 11 March (Winterschool Basis) + Thursday 12 March & Friday 13 March.
In the Winterschool Intensive we go deeper into creative processes and how to use your body and intuition. We train you to embrace the ‘not-knowing’ and get to work with both performing and making work, following the methods and vision of the company. We make the connection to relate this to your own work or personal life: how can you use this method to connect more with your yourself and your surroundings?
Who for? Anyone who thinks our working methods could be useful in their daily life. This could be for example professionally practicing performing artists, but could also be teachers, therapists or managers. In our opinion it is relevant for anyone and everyone to learn to trust their intuition, senses and body.
Where? ‘Het Huis Utrecht’, Boorstraat 107, 3513 SE Utrecht
