In this workshop you will learn how to bluff every profession. We will work on the routine of the mail sorter, the instruments of a surgeon, and the technique of a sniper. 
The focus will be on the moves and the attitude of different professions. While doing this, you will train conviction and the skill of combining moving and talking.
By taking elements from Viewpoints and physical theatre, we will also explore different ways of expressing emotion and relation through movement. This way, our characters not only look skilled and confident, but we can tell the story by showing it.
