We must explore the wonderful, fantastic world of drama in different ways. Work must be done on character building, improvisation and status exercises. You must find the security of standing on a stage with the others in the team. We have to perform funny sketches and smaller productions. You have to bring yourself as the most important tool, and then a lot of fun and challenging moments await within the very broad drama genre.
Children are an immediate audience where the response comes immediately. We must explore this universe and create smaller or larger plays that we must show to each other. Together, we must find the tools used in this genre, and perhaps watch some clips that bring childhood nostalgia to the surface.
Hopefully it will end with a small performance for the local children in the area.
We’re singing in a choir! Anyone’s welcome regardless of experience, as we try out our vocal harmonies in pop, rock, or whichever genres we feel like.
All people have funny, exciting and maybe a little crazy stories to tell. In this subject, your storytelling skills must be polished with various tools that make your story more lively and exciting. We have to tell for and with each other, where it can be both already existing stories, as well as stories from your own life. It can be anything from a holiday experience to stories from school, which with a little spice on top, can end up with a really good story.
If you wanna get to know a(nother) instrument, this is the class for you! You’ll choose an instrument - maybe more - that you would like to learn how to play, and together we will figure out how to make it happen. Rhythm and chords, tempo and melody will no longer be foreign words, when you are done with this class.
We’re playing in a band. During this spring, you’ll become a tight musical unit, and create a set-list of the songs you want to play the most.
We have to produce a theatre performance from scratch. We have to write our own script, create our own characters, and choose which genre the play will be. It will be a wonderful process, where our very own performance will be created. You will get an insight into an exciting and educational process, where together we must create exactly the performance we want. The process also includes scenography planning, lighting, PR and all other ingredients of a theatre performance. Towards the end of the period, we must of course present our show to an enthusiastic audience.
Have you ever wanted to try singing and playing music, but haven’t yet made an attempt? This is your chance! In Band 101 everyone is welcome; all you need is your enthusiasm.
We need to find out what humour is. We must examine the diverse world of humour and find out how humour has developed over time. We have to laugh a lot, and try our hand at the funny universe. We have to tell jokes, make sketches and watch different clips from already existing humour.
We will find stories, fairy tales and other fantastic stories from the "old days" and make them contemporary. The various themes must be found and rewritten to be able to take place in our everyday life. Work must be done on a new interpretation of an already existing good story, which must end up with a small potpourri of modern editions.
In this subject, we will focus on solo productions of different nature. We will see each other perform in different ways, and come across genres such as poetry slam, storytelling and stand up. All people have exciting stories, and we must bring them into the spotlight. Maybe a single joke is enough for you, but you also get the opportunity to dig a little deeper when we find out what your product(s) should be. Although it will end with a solo challenge, throughout the course we will use various exercises which will be done together in the team. We will also see some clips where we will learn more about the different genres.
The Woodstock Festival in 1969 was the culmination of the 1960’s hippie culture with Peace, Free Love and psychedelic rock. Jimi Hendrix, Santana and Janis Joplin were among the 30 major artists of the time that performed during the 4 days of Woodstock. We’ll learn the history of the festival and the culture behind it, and play the music that was on stage back in 1969.
Together, we will give a humorous look back at the year that passed. We will produce small sketches that will bring back a lot of good memories from the year. As a student, you have a great influence on the content of the subject, and can bring out known and unknown comic sides. The more you dare to throw yourself into, the better. It's going to be huge!
Writing Lyrics is for you, who want to learn how to write your own poems or song lyrics. We play with words and rhymes and learn how to find inspiration and “spice up” our lyrics, so the audience gets drawn in. It is possible to work with the students from Writing Music to co-write finished songs.
“Sing Your Heart Out” is for you, who wants to improve your singing, so you can better express yourself with your voice. You will learn about everything between breathing techniques, vocal techniques and performance skills, so you will be able to use the full potential of your voice to “Sing Your Heart Out” be it on stage or in the shower. Everybody can join regardless of experience, as long as you have a desire to sing.
We’re playing music together! We will pick out a few songs we want to work with, and then have a good time learning them. Skill level doesn’t matter; everyone is welcome.
