Weekend Workshops from TRIE

Experimenting with dramatic form: Intensifying emotions within the echo chamber of the playscript.


The Theater Research Institute of Europe (TRIE, asbl) invites drama therapists,psychotherapists, actors, performers, and other interested participants (upon application) to a series of practical weekend workshops at the beautiful Lake of  Constance in Germany.

Offered workshops comprise weekends of learning to enhance the ability to express emotions and increase the range of expressivity regarding emotional tones. What you learn is directly applicable to your own work as a performer or to your work with patients.

The workshop method is based on using breathing, vocal projection, emotional memory techniques, and imagination. This will increase ability to project the fundamental six emotions and to amplify these emotional states into a panoply of derivate emotions. The work also encompasses developing a character for, rehearsing, and acting in short original playscripts.

The workshops are led by Dr Dana Rufolo and TRIE’s team of on-site and visiting experts.

The cost per weekend is 150 Euros. This covers a workshop from 10 am until midday and from 2 until 7 in the afternoon on Saturdays, and from 10 am until midday and from 1 until 5 in the afternoon on Sundays. Snacks and drinks are offered. There are many possibilities of finding affordable housing for the weekend, including youth hostels (Jugendherberge), hotels, and guest houses. If you need help locating housing, TRIE may offer assistance.
