This workshop aims to bring together trans*, inter, non-binary, and agender creatives to share skills and empower each other to tell our own stories on screen <3.
If you have an interest in acting, directing, camera work, sound recording, or screenwriting, regardless of your experience level, we invite you to join us in the Casa Kuà garden for an afternoon of learning and experimentating together!
We will begin with warm-up exercises and an introduction to the basics of staging a short fiction scene. We will focus on the flow between directors and performers, experimenting with improvisation, and using the camera to choose the shots that convey the energy of your scene.
Afterwards, we will split into small groups to shoot three short scenes. The goal is not only to achieve the final result but also to learn and explore creative ways to tell our own stories and make each other shine, all through a trans* perspective behind and in front of the camera!
Please note that for this first workshop, we will be able to work with a limited number of 15 participants. If we receive more applications than spots, we’ll activate a waiting list and send you a confirmation email when your spot is confirmed.
If you enjoy writing, you are welcome to send us or bring a short scene that you would like to film. The scene should be no longer than 2 minutes, involve 2 protagonists, and be 1-2 pages of script maximum. We will provide the camera and sound recording equipment, but please bring your own headphones if you have them for sound recording.
The workshop will be in English, we can also mix with German and Spanish if needed.
Casa Kuà aims to create a safer space primarily centering BIPOC trans, inter and queer and is also inclusive towards white trans and inter people.
About the facilitators:
João (he/him) is a white transmasculine filmmaker, with a European passport. He works and studies as director, screenwriter and in film production for experimental fiction and documentary films. He sees the collective making of fictional narratives as a space to create potentials of resistance and solidarity, to translate our own sensorial experiences of space and time and dreams of manifesting together on screen the spaces and narratives we need to thrive.
frān (they/none) is a nonbinary audiovisual artist & producer. They grew up in Nicaragua but left the country in 2018 due to the sociopolitical crisis, and relocated in Berlin. They are a person of color with a stable migration status and a steady income. The way they relate to documentations of reality has evolved over the years and has significantly shaped the way they understand themselves and their own history. frān’s current work explores the intersections between formats, identities, and individual memory.
