Naket Stage: More Than 2
We all have a neighbour, a roommate, a friend or a coworker that we find peculiar, unusually interesting, mysteriously exciting, attractively kooky. In More Than 2 Gonzalo Piñán and Paula Galimberti give life to this kind of characters. They tell their most intimate stories, the things that only happen inside their homes. Come and inspire the performers with the people you meet in the elevator, the people you see in the garage, come across in the doorway of your house or have shared an apartment with. Maybe this kind of people and characteristics live also within you and you might dare to take a visit to this part of yourself. Welcome to our new neighbourhood!
Paula Galimberti is an actress, improviser, director and teacher. She studied at the Cristina Rota Acting School in Madrid and received additional training by Jordan Bayne. She has been professionally active since 1996 and works mainly on the Madrid – Berlin route, where she currently lives. She is the founder of the impro group Jamming in Madrid. In Berlin she collaborates with the company Esimpro and the project Esimprocine and she co-creates the duet with the artist Inbal Lori. The performance More than 2 is her latest work, premiering right at the Naked Stage.
Gonzalo Piñán is a member of the Berlin based company Esimpro and the founder and the artistic director of the school of performing arts and improvisation Esimproescuela, which has been operating in Berlin since 2013 in English and Spanish. He is an actor, musician, composer and psychologist by basic education. He gained theatrical and improvisational knowledge and experience through working with theatres and artists El Club de la Impro, Die Gorillas, Quinto Parpadeo, Al Tran Trán Impromusical, Paula Galimberti, David Razowsky, Tim Orr, Inbal Lori, Carmela Leotta and Camila Edwards. After moving to Berlin, he actively co-created the Spanish-speaking artistic community there.
Goran Završnik learnt piano as a child and after three years he ran from music school and never came back. Then he discovered the synthesizer with lots of buttons and everything became fun again. Now, after thirty years, he works with incredibly interesting impro artists and groups, musically co-creating events like the Improvision Song Contest in Ljubljana and Graz, Moment festival in Vienna or Improvention festival in Canberra, Australia. He is trying to push the right button or key at the right moment, not to interrupt too much the almighty impro actors on stage. The best accompanying music, they say, is music you don’t hear. But sometimes impro musicians need to be loud and full of initiative. From a punk singer and a keyboard player in a high school band of the Yugoslavian Army to the biggest (110 kg) Slovenian impro theatre musician.
