U svojoj umjetničkoj praksi, Serafin je zainteresiran za rad s različitim stanjima bivanja i utjelovljenja. To biće može biti drag, likovi u animama i računalnim igricama, bića iz fantastičnih i znanstveno-fantastičnih filmova, striperi, kulturne ikone pojedinačnih država, figure u klasičnim tekstovima itd. U ovoj radionici predlaže da se radi sa sljedećim pitanjima u strukturi improvizacije:

S kojim materijalom ili procesom netko ulazi u određeno stanje bivanja?
Jednom kada smo pristupili tom stanju, kako ono utječe na pokrete tijela?
Koji fenomenološki osjećaj i značenje ti pokreti stvaraju?
Koje emocije prepoznajemo i puštamo?
Što činimo s time ili činimo li uopće išta s time?
I koliko toga možemo zahvatiti u zadanom vremenu?

IMPROVISED EMBODIMENT OF STATES

In his artistic practice, Serafin has been interested in working with different states of being and embodiment. This could be being as a drag, performing characters in anime and computer games, creatures from fantasy and sci-fi movies, strippers, cultural figure representation of a country, figures in classical text, etc. In this workshop he proposes to work with these following question in a structure of improvisation:  

With what material or process does one use to get into a specific state of being?
Ones accessed, how does each state of being affect the movement of the body?
What phenomenological feel and meaning does these movement create?
What emotions do we acknowledge and pass through?
What do we make of this or do we make anything out of this.
And how much can we tackle in given time?
