    RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEXT AND PHYSICAL ACTIONS

    A 2 week workshop led by Tage Larsen (Odin Teatret)

     

    The workshop deals with a particular physical approach to text and the text's presentation and is based on a dynamic, visual and sound preparation of an actor through physical and vocal training. The training explores and challenges the actors' physical ability, imagination, and capacity to create and mould expressions. The actors learn exercises and then begin to create some of their own. A personal set of actions is linked together to be repeated in various ways, working on space, rhythm, volume, resistance, opposition, colours and humour. Improvisations and compositions are fixed and refined in their physical form and then confronted with a text. The texts are chosen by the participants: something they are eager to explore and transmit. The text will be realised in different ways. Text and action will give and take from each other.

     

    For 16 participants and 4 observers

    Needs: Each participant is required to learn by heart a text before coming to the workshop.

    Language: The workshop will be conducted in English. Tage Larsen can communicate with the participants in Italian, Spanish, Danish and French.
