Oblivia’s the “Do what you saw method”

It is simple, it is fun and it is a brilliant way of devising material for performances.

The “do what you saw” method have been developed by Oblivia’s core members: Anna Krzystek, Timo Fredriksson and Annika Tudeer over more than ten years of collective work and it is the base for Oblivia’s wonderfully quirky and multilayered performances. The Do what you saw method is a process for creating and devising material. Through the distilling and sharing that happens in the work-shop, the participants creates an abundance of material to use in the “big impro” that ends each day. The workshop invites the participants to experience ways to distil and share ideas into action and text. They will encounter ways of working with subtlety, humour, presence and timing.

The workshop is taught by Oblivia’s members.

The work-shop has been taught a.o. at TEAK Helsinki, HKZ Berlin and is the basis for the project Structures for Love that is developed together with Pathos Munchen.
