mike hentz - emotional logic systems, Vienna Poetry School 2018

emotional logic systems - atmospheric and poetic staging

a writing and performance class with Mike Hentz

How to create atmosphere with sound, light, image, text, body, voice?

mike hentz developed “climate” as an artistic technique that he uses and applies already for years in performances, events and stagings.

during its course, a narration is created and is characterised by dramaturgy, expectation, framework and techniques of synchronisation and extends as far as warmth, cold, smells, light, time & timing and  room design. It’s about practising how to sensibilise, create an atmosphere, develop a topic in work groups. during half time: all participants eat chinese hotpot with first performance.
