Classes / Workshops / Projects 
The music Matthias Flake creates for the stage comes into being primarily in rehearsal spaces, in close collaboration with the actor(s) in question. His work with acting students relies on open rehearsal processes and takes place at the crossroads between dramatic arts and music. The focus lies on a spontaneous and collaborative approach to music creation. In workshops, courses and projects the students develop an awareness for how music functions in scenic and dramatic contexts, as well as develop their individual music skills, and learn how to apply them to various theatrical settings. This approach to working with music on stage supports the notion that singing is the simplest and most direct way of transmitting music in theatre.

Classes / Workshops: Scenic music work / Gestural singing
Song / Chanson
Acting through music
