Workshop Details

During the workshop with Mario Müller you are going to learn mostly two things:

Firstly: Physicality

Theatre-legend Peter Brook said that actors need to make a connection between their imagination and their body. While we naturally understand that an actor has to transform a message in their head into a signal of their body, the other direction is essential for excellent improvisers. Your body always knows the truth. If you can read it, like the audience does, you always play naturally and the characters you embody are true and credible – and funny. So the most work goes into creating different physical foundations for characters. They serve as perception filter, so you always feel how this character would naturally respond.

Secondly: Status

Energy, dominance, aggression – these are some of the first associations that come to mind when we learn about status play. But there is so much more to it than just that. And there is more to it than establishing status for a character on stage. An essential step in the development of an improviser is the transition from playing status to living and embodying status. Once you have the difference in your bones and understood that status is almost never transported in verbal messages, you enter the sphere of people that are able to move audiences and humans in general – both on stage and off-stage. Establish protagonists, play on the emotional chords of the audience and let them burst into laughter without thinking about it. Benefit in your real life as well: learning about status is key for being successful dealing with humans.

Mario Müller’s Biography:

Mario was first dazzled by Improvised Comedy in 2004 and is now playing around 80 shows internationally and hosts Workshops for around 30 to 40 days a year

Mario is the artistic director of the ‘Theater mit beschränkter Hoffnung – TmbH’ (‘Theatre Hope Ltd.’) which was founded in 1993 in Constance, Germany.
The renowned ensemble has been touring between Cairo, Egypt, and Rovaniemi (Finland) for many years.
Their actors and actresses have been on stage almost everywhere between Calgary and Melbourne- Chicago, Vienna, London, Ljubljana, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin – you name it.
Mario is also member of Improtheater Konstanz and COMEDYExpress, a Swiss integrative theater.
He has worked with people with dementia, with teenagers, professors, students, entrepreneurs and award-­‐winning cabaret artists, dancers, children and most of all – all different improvisers from all over the world.

1012984_790542521025834_6010276819675814890_nMario has trained with/ is inspired by some of the greatest international Improvisers, such as:

Charna Halpern, Joe Bill (Chicago); Patti Stiles (Melbourne); Sean Kinley (Calgary); Felipe Ortiz, Alberto Lasprilla (Bogota); Fabio Macchioni (Milano); Jim Libby (Maine/Vienna); Lee White, Steve Sim (Winnpeg); Roland Trescher (Munich); Doug Nunn (Mendocino); Katharina Butting (Hamburg); Marc Schloßarek, Roberto Hirche (Constance).

Mario is known for his physical style of performing, which excites both the audience and Improv grandest.
It was in London, when iO Chicago founder Charna Halpern reclaimed: ‘Among the best three physical improvisers I have seen in my life, you are one of them.62612_10151574468891176_1016389342_n

In his Improv philosophy, Mario focuses on the play of the body to help performers to get out of their heads-in to their body, to engage trustingly in their own physicality and on what is already present.
Authenticity, humor and depth in play result naturally and effortlessly by focusing on certain ways of perception.

We all know that ‘Made in Germany’ stands for top notch quality and Mario certainly is the living proof for it.
In addition, his English skill are impeccable as so are his presentation, approach and kindness.
