As a mentor, my goal is to guide artists in creating innovative theatrical works using different creative mediums such as music, drama, body, video, light, and scenography. My approach focuses on physical theatre and total theatre language, a creation technique that is not typically taught in conventional art schools.
If you are an artist looking to expand your skills and explore new creative territories, then this mentoring is for you. Together, we will explore how to create theatrical works for unconventional or outdoor spaces, using different mediums to bring our ideas to life.
With over 25 years of experience in large-scale projects in theatre, opera, cinema, television, and performances around the world, I am excited to share my knowledge and experience with artists of all ages. My focus on physical theatre and total theatre language will enable us to create something truly unique and innovative together.
Led by Belgian artist Younes Bachir, stems from Bachir's fourteen years experience of working with the Spanish company La Fura dels Baus
combined with his knowledge of text drama and film actor. Bachir has created a method that is a successful transference of those theatrical skills to international performance makers - which is the workshop labelled Andante.
Bachir has given workshops in: Genova, La Habana, Brusel, Menorca, Barcelona, Melbourne, Brisbane, Darwin, Sydney.
The structure and main purpose of the workshop is the development of a unique performance that will be presented to the audience on the final day.

Andante Show / OjO ( James Waites, 5TH WAll Review )
It’s pure spectacle and music in Aristotle’s terms; with characters as primal archetypes
in mimesis, the barest of narrative as a visual catharsis.
