Welcome to our acting workshops!
Theater, that "Festival of the moment", is a conscious, intensive way of dealing with ourselves. The role approach and interpretation is connected with a curious open Look at us and others. And the wonderful thing is always the surprise.
Come on a journey of discovery! :
The focus of the courses is on dealing with the role and with oneself. Improvisation and interaction, knowledge of the individual craft of the actor, stimulation of one’s own imagination, as well as the importance of impartial listening and watching as an important part of the acting work I want in these courses convey.
- respiratory education
- voting- & Sprechtraining
- body language & Expression
- Communication-together games
- inter alia.
Based on the theater forms of Stanislawski and Brechts, many different acting methods flow into the work. Acting is made up of a wide range of specialist areas! In addition to teaching techniques, it is always and and above all about the playful, lively discovery of your own potential. The player is made aware of the wide range of his expressions.
The workshops are aimed at everyone interested in theater (beginners, advanced and professionals). We work in small groups (max. 12 participants) to ensure, in addition to group work, a targeted, individual approach to each individual. My course participants are usually between 16 and 75 years old and come from all over German-speaking countries and beyond. Participants under the age of 18 need the consent of a legal guardian.
The lecturer: Anne Kathrin Madeleine
Born in Munich, raised in Heidelberg, I began my acting training after graduating from high school at the theater college "Ernst Busch Berlin / Rostock" and graduated in 1994 with a diploma.
Since then I have played as a permanent member of the ensemble or as a guest at various theaters.
Since the subject of voice training / speech training was of great importance in my training and has always fascinated me, I started training as a breathing teacher using the method "Functional respiratory therapy" after Dr. Parow.
In addition to my work as an actress, I discovered my joy in teaching early on and have been teaching at theater schools, universities and educational institutions for more than 18 years. With my husband and two children, I moved to the Drôme Provençale and founded the international cultural center there " La Vivandiere", whose artistic director I was from 2009 to 2017. Since 2018 I have been concentrating completely on my theater work
Award: 1995 North Rhine-Westphalian Theater Prize.
Respiratory teacher according to the method "Functional respiratory therapy" after Dr. Parow.
In further training as an MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) lecturer.
In addition to my group workshops, I offer coaching and preparation for entrance exams at drama schools. So far, many of my students have passed the entrance exam at stately drama schools.

Gaby from Speyer, acting workshop on La Gomera October 21, 2018
I’ve always wanted to experience such a course. It is said that it is fun to do breathing exercises, voice training and physical exercises. I can confirm that! What touches me is hard to put into words: ..to experience other people so differently. To show yourself courageously, this is only possible if there is trust. I would like to thank you for having a great time with interesting people. What I like about you is: your naturalness, your professionalism and passion.
Christiane from Potsdam, acting workshop on La Gomera October 21, 2018
Voices swing through the room Das "O" is Manfred’s biggest dream. He sends it round with enthusiasm. Soon everyone will hear it. Slowly he is getting quieter. Sonja sounds quite hotter. Then a loud sheep sounds "Mö" And the donkey makes I-ö André chills and sniffs very cheerfully And we dare to go on Susanne wallows in delight for a tango – and then only sees the back of the dancer A lot is also worn out on props Gaby has smoothly shown the cigarillos bitten Christiane do not forget us seduction in all finesse – and always remember – breathe! Thomas shows more and more courage The James is in his flesh and blood Acting is work and desire, Anne makes clear to us and we found it very wonderful!

"The others always play the king"
Dear Anne, it was an unforgettable experience and experiences that will remain with me for a lifetime. I was able to learn a lot and gain a lot of practice.
You exceeded my expectations.
Lisa from Salzburg, acting course July 1st, 2016
I am still completely satisfied with the workshop, the training. I am asserting myself in a completely new way for me at the moment.
Subliminally I experienced several situations in the "How dare you" mode.
For example, I did not like the food in Avignon, so I went to the distinguished host and told him that he now owes me a pastis. Then he did well.
So thank you for your energy, your commitment, your bite.
Nicole from Munich, acting workshop 24.03.2016
I thank you and your family from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful week in Nyons!

I came to enjoy playing again and have experienced exactly that.
A poem is not just a poem but grows with it "Who says this"?" In what situation? "My imagination blooms.
You opened up a rich treasure for me to continue working. My breath is expanded in all breathing spaces so that it does not jam next time.
You have found a wonderful place that awakens creativity and well-being with your vision, which is very lively and inviting.
Thank you very much for the much too fast past week with great lessons.

merci mille fois
(Steffi from Stuttgart, acting lessons September 6, 2014
my first acting course. such a gift!
I take so many impressions with me, not just for the stage, but much more for my own life. It was about the art of observation and this art developed so quickly, in Nyons, but especially in our group.
Moving moments, but also funny, funny, strange, difficult, light, relaxing and exciting. like in life itself!
I’ll take it all with you, you’ve made us richer. Thank you, grazie

Thank you for the great theater experiences that I was able to collect here. I played a lot of theater before, but I was able to learn a lot of new things. I wish you and your family all the best and would like to thank you again for the week that ended too quickly!
(Stefan from Herford, drama workshop August 16, 2014
You give so much!
Give yourself up for us so that we can fight on you, on ourselves and see something new. New things that are sometimes too new to take up without resistance. But you are preparing the way for us to tackle it anyway. If you dare and let things show you, you will see and understand and grow.
You have the gift of letting go of the struggling at the right moment and catching it again!
Thank you for this exciting week!
(Claudia from Lübeck, drama course August 16, 2014
It was my second time here and I was very happy to do so. I already knew some things, I was happy to rediscover them or to call them back. Everyone a great way to teach us participants to act!
It was certainly not the last time here. It was always a pleasure to hear your suggestions.
(Christiane from Stuttgart, drama workshop August 16, 2014
Your exact way of observing, your great knowledge of the acting profession and your way of picking up each participant sensitively and challenging wherever they are make your lessons a special experience!
Thanks 1000 fois
(Alma from Berlin, coaching for three July 2014
This course has brought me a lot as a lay actor. The insight into professional stage work has totally changed my picture of professional actors. I thank you for your commitment. The structure of the entire workshop couldn’t be better.
(Albert from Essen, acting workshop July 19, 2014
The week was very intense. I found it a great gift to immerse myself in acting for 5 days.
These days will have aftermath.
(Annette from Berlin, theater workshop July 19, 2014

Coming together is a start
Staying together is progress
Working together is a success
(Karin from Austria, theater workshop July 19, 2014
I think it’s one of the greatest things I’ve done in the past few years.
You write on your website that it is only about acting, not a means of self-awareness. That’s right and that’s not how I experienced the days. Nevertheless – to come out with emotions, even if they are "just" played and not felt deeply, but only modeled, it triggers something in you, not intended, but it happens to you. At least, that’s how it was for me, and I’m very grateful for that too, because – beyond the show – I was able to drive home with something that I wasn’t expecting in the least.
(Ralf from Munich, drama workshop April 2014
And since this day, like here, here, here and here, always finds a place on the blog, today two articles appear exceptionally in one day. *G*…
I am a Christian and believe in the principle of charity. I’ve believed in it all my life. I actually thought so cold-heartedly…
Aren’t old-fashioned relationships just wonderful? A man would actually try to keep his wife at the time, and the woman was hers…
School has now started again in Bavaria. I am allowed to continue my class and thus have a 4th grade this school year….
