Some of the most beautiful and intense sessions I have had have been when I was playing someone else. Role play is a way to step away from our mundane self into the guise of another person.
Taking on the role of someone or something else can be very empowering and free us from restricting thought-patterns and act as a tool to ask for what we do not dare to when we are ourselves.
For many, one obstacle to role play is “performance anxiety”, the feeling that one will not have enough ideas, be able to stay in role or freeze up in the middle of everything. In this workshop we will focus on how to get into role, leaving behind any expectations of producing concrete results or
scenarios. Freeing ourselves from this expectation is what allows us to be creative and have fun while getting in touch with still unknown sides of ourself.

Anna Natt was trained as a flamenco dancer in Spain before moving to Berlin. Her performance work focuses on
collaborations with musicians and composers of different disciplines. In order to cultivate a deeper understanding
of the body and its nuances, she draws inspiration from somatic and contemporary practices. A connection to
trance and dream states is also a central theme in her work. She appeared in the performance SM - Sensual Magic
choreographed by Felix Ruckert and curated and performed in the role play space “Guru Supermarket“ and
“Monster & Demons“ at the Xplore Festival Berlin in 2016 and 2017.
