I always dreamed that life had a soundtrack, so I would know what the hell is happening. So powerful is the music. Dress with music like a second skin and she will be the inspiration that moves you. Let the music penetrate you and possess you and from her, the stories will be born. Music, body language and word mixed with a single Objective, to thrill.
About Ignacio Grinstein
Searching for a way to break with the chronic shyness that persecuted me as a child, I started with theater in 1999 at the age of 15 years old, since then an endless world was discovered before my eyes. I have not stopped studying, researching and trying different things since this moment: theater, clown, masks, circus, and acrobatics, physical theater, pantomime, always on the pursuit of finding new and different ways of express and communicate. In 2005 I moved from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Israel, where I live for the last 14 years. Here I found myself again in improvisation walking in a beautiful path that opened me the desire to know more and the closeness with Europe led me to study physical theater and Commedia del Arte in Italy, soak in physical theater courses of techniques such as Lecoq, Laban, Decroux. Delve into the work with masks, from the neutral mask, Balinese, expressive, Trans masks. Develop my clown persona from various types of clowning. and continue working on my performance and improvisation until I had the opportunity to participate in the International Diploma of improvisation at El Bosque University in Bogota, Colombia. I am a fervent believer that words as they say also hide. Those letters creating symbols that are presented to us different from each other and that eventually end up confusing more than they help. the body does not lie. the body is emotion and emotion is the body. In the last 2 years, I felt the need to start transmitting everything I had learned and what I believe. merging experiences and knowledge in the transmission of physical improvisation. I began in Israel teaching children and adults workshops focused on the physical and then, after the diploma in Colombia, I started a tour on Latin America (Argentina, Colombia, Peru, and Bolivia) teaching workshops of physical improvisation in particular and different ways of storytelling. I speak 4 languages but the one I like the most is the Gibberish and the body language.
