This two-day workshop explores the idea of embodiment as a key element in the process of developing original art. Through use of the Neutral Mask, a cornerstone of LISPA's teaching philosophy, participants are invited to make links between movement and emotion, life and art, the physical body and the poetic body. Additionally the work will serve to gain a deeper understanding of the essential dynamic forces within any art form, their vital function in the construction of artistic work, and how to apply them to dramatic creation.

LISPA, founded in 2003, has since become an internationally recognised meeting place for training and artistic research in the field of devised theatre and performance. Students from some 50 different countries have completed our different programs so far, making the school one of the most international and diverse meeting places in its field.
Rooted in the teachings of the late Jacques Lecoq, the full-time program aims at writers, performers, actors, dancers, choreographers and directors. Since 2016, the full-time program takes place entirely in Berlin, Europe's wildest child, giving all our students the experience of living and studying in a fascinating, up and coming international city.
