This workshop opens a new area of activities for Studio Matejka. With a broader structure than before, and additional camera work, the workshop both created space for unique experiences and leaded to concrete artistic outcomes.

The Liquid Way to Action fused our well established creative training and research process with the performers own experiences to uncover personal forms of expression. We used the idea of contradictions as a source of research for the performer. Contradictions are not only a limitation, but also, by focusing simultaneously on oppositional ideas, they open doorways for the inner, primal sources of the body to flow.

The participants explored the rigorous and experimental workspace that defines Studio Matejka. Through a laboratory model that seeks to break the borders between dance, dramatic theatre and other forms of performing arts, we aim to unlock the potentiality of beginnings and places, where action was born.
