The Bridge of Winds, an international theatre research group
directed by Iben Nagel Rasmussen (Odin Teatret), invites actors,
dancers, and students to participate in an actor's training
workshop, "The Heritage of the Wind".
The workshop, led by Iben Nagel Rasmussen and the actors of The
Bridge of Winds, founded on the pedagogical research the
group and its master have developed during their 20 years of
experience. The work involved the following: the wind
dance, the four types of energy, the vocal
training and the creation of dramatic scenes. The
Bridge of Winds and Iben Nagel Rasmussen also presented
performances and work demonstration every evening.
The workshop took place at Theatre La Maloca, directed by
Beatriz Camargo, an important reference for Colombian culture, in
particular for the colonial town of Villa de Leyva, known for its
cultural and environmental richness.
This workshop was part of the cultural project "Canto de
Amonitas", supported by the municipality of Villa de Leyva with the
goal of cultural animation of the local population and involved
seminars and a final cultural feast in the streets of the town. The
participants of the workshop took part in this event presenting
scenes and figures created during the work. The event concluded
with the performance "Ur-Nat" with The Bridge of Winds in the main
square of Villa de Leyva.
