Short description

In physical awareness, students explore ways to prepare themselves for a sustainable career. The body is the instrument, not only physically but also artistically.
Physical Awareness consists of 3 different modules: LAB, Anatomy of the voice and Condition

In LAB (Physical Artistic Awareness = 30h), one's own relaxed-supportive posture is explored, in addition to discovering the body as an artistic presence in the theatrical space.

In Condition = 30h, students work on strengthening their own bodies under the guidance of a physiotherapist.

In Anatomy of the voice = 5h, students gain an understanding of the anatomical workings of the voice
