Description

When we talk about communication, we usually assume that it is oral or written communication. It is often forgotten that there is also communication in non-verbal form. Posture or facial expressions usually complement or underline the spoken word. In this module students will research how it is possible to complete a narrative through their own body perception. Is it possible to tell a story or give a speech without words? Can a person appear more present or attract more attention through a certain posture? Are there differences in mood or tension when someone tells a story in different places in the same room? These and many other questions related to non-verbal communication will be explored in this workshop through practical exercises.
