September 7 – 9 : DbD Workshop #1
The DbD Experience (Doing by Doing) is a 23-hour intensive weekend created by renowned interdisciplinary performance artist Rachel Rosenthal in Los Angeles. Nathalie Broizat has worked with Rachel Rosenthal for 5 years, and she is the first former member of the Rachel Rosenthal Company authorized to pass on this technique. The method applied to the DbD was developed between the 50’s and 70’s in Los Angeles with the Instant Theater Company. “Doing by Doing” is the underlying philosophy of the workshop, providing participants with a thorough hands-on experience covering all aspects of theatrical performance (body, voice, sound, music, movement, lights, sets, props and costumes), approached through exercises, processes and improvisations of solos, duets and group work. The nuts and bolts aspect of the work is technical and professional.
All levels of experience are welcome. This workshop is open to anyone interested in committing to a full, one weekend artistic experience, whether you are a professional artist of any discipline, amateur or simply interested in a new experience. All creative souls are welcome!
Performance artist Nathalie Broizat directs the Compagnie Love Labo, in residency at the Fondation des Etats-Unis. She also works as a dancer-performer for Marco Berrettini.
Having trained as a dancer and graduated in performing arts from Paris VIII University, she received a Fulbright Scholarship to study at the Laban/Bartenieff Institute in New York in 2000. She spent three years in New York, where she became recognized in the performance art scene and presented several solos in places such as the Judson Church, Danspaceproject at St Marc Church, Dixon Place and the Wax… She then moved to Los Angeles to work with Rachel Rosenthal, American pioneer in performance art and was a member of the company for more than 6 years. With the Rachel Rosenthal Company, she performed in venues such as the Getty Center, the Museum of Contemporary Art (Moca), Redcat and Highways Performance Space in Los Angeles. She was a regular guest artist at the University of Mississippi, where she gave performances, lectures, and workshops, and was also invited for a solo performance at the Single File Festival in Chicago.
Nathalie Broizat has been back in France for more than 7 years. She directs the DbD Workshops (Doing by Doing), a performance workshop and technique created by Rachel Rosenthal, which she develops at the Fondation des Etats-Unis, and more recently also at the National Dance Center and in the educational field.
