emotional logic systems

atmospheric and poetic staging

a writing and performance class

with musician, action and performance artist mike hentz (berlin)


how to create atmosphere with sound, light, image, text, body, voice?

mike hentz developed "climate" as an artistic technique that he uses and applies already for years in performances, events and stagings. during its course, a narration is created and is characterised by dramaturgy, expectation, framework and techniques of synchronisation and extends as far as warmth, cold, smells, light, time & timing and room design.

It's about practising how to sensibilise, create an atmosphere, develop a topic in work groups.
