It is an experiment for us as well, so we would ask you to do your own research on how your bike should function regarding on your physical condition and endurance.
We try to organise as much as possible, but to make this trip as a whole group we are depending on your initiative.

In collaboration with the Bike Kitchen Vienna you will have the possibility to participate in workshops to pimp your bike for the tour. There will be a general workshop for bike repairing and adjusting plus a workshop to build proper bike bags, if you don’t have the luxury of owning a pair. The workshops will take place in the week before the kabaret (last week of july). We are still arranging the precise dates and will update you on that soon.
Luggage: take only what you can carry on your bike. We only take your tents and film equipment in the cars. Clothes and personal stuff has to be transported by you. Think about tying everything to your bike, bike bags on your rack, or bike trailers. Its a pain in the ass to carry stuff on your back. We suggest you to not take more than 10kg with you.

More about the workshop
Acting is like any other discipline such as dancing, sport and music. You need to practice and train to keep up in shape and maintain a high standard of performance. Tsungaï Garisé, the acting trainer, intends to have regular workshops so that actors and students can continue developing their skills. Students work at their individual levels in the group; they go through a series of exercises and scenes in their own pace.

Tsungaï’s training is a mixture of different techniques used by successful actors; these techniques include the effective use of sense memory, improvisations, repetition and imagination exercises, how to develop a character and scene work. The actors use their real life experiences, in order to explore and discover situations that ignite emotions, thoughts and sensations that touch them the most. In so doing they are able to bring out the reality of the moment demanded by the writer or director.

Open to beginners as well as to experienced actors&actresses.
