Production Details / Press Releases
12 performers, over 2 weeks, build an improvisational ensemble using Action Theater™ training. They enter the stage empty. They have no idea what it is going to be about or how it is going to feel. They discover the beauty of believing in the present, accepting each moment for what it is.
Action Theater™ Improvisation Training, developed by Ruth Zaporah, is a physical improvisation for anyone who wishes to access imagination, develop vocal, verbal and physical performance skills. Sten Rudstrøm has worked for over 20 years with Ruth Zaporah. He is a widely respected teacher and perfomer and works throughout in the USA and Europe. Based in Berlin he is a founding member of Action Theater Berlin.
