Our body remembers, our body is memory. Our entire life is written in the lines of our hands and in the light of our eyes, as well as the history of those who preceded us, of those we never met before, of our forebears, is secretly held in ourselves.
Memory contains our direct experiences of the world. It contains tales, images and scents that we have simply heard, seen and perceived from afar.
All that creates an enormous wealth of experiences from which actors draw inspiration to give a unique and personal soul to their creation.
Sometimes we are not conscious of this, sometimes it is not our mind, but our body that remembers.
We awake physical memories to give voice to what has been forgotten.
We get in touch with other bodies and together create a concert of souls that share experiences pointing towards a common story. It is a meeting of physical memories that speaks about the universal history of life. We will meet in a common place where childhood, love and death, solitude and old age coexist to inspire our creation.
We will travel through a creative process that turns complexity into simplicity. This process will remove instead of adding until we reach the essence as a meeting point for diversity.
Act in space to change it. Act and react to others and together build bridges. Physical memories of others are like mirrors that open forgotten doors inside you.
In the silence and solitude of work you can find connection with your lost personal world.
The old objects of memory come back to life with new and unexpected forms and a distant song accompanies our childhood dance.
Keep your eyes open, don't close them. Breath. Be simple.

DAILY WORK

The workshop will focus on the study of stage action: physical, vocal and inner.

Participants will work on the three parameters of physical action (speed, volume, and intensity) through group and individual exercises.

Using the actor’s psycho-physical training actor each participant will develop attention and stage presence.

Working in relationship with music (live or recorded), students will rediscover and explore their bodies, voice and imagination in a creative way.

The length of the workshop can be:

-  1 day intensive session ( 6/8 hours).

-  2 day intensive session (6/8 hours per day).

-  3 day intensive session (6/8 hours per day).

   (in this case participants can present a small open work demonstration)

4 day intensive session (6/8 hours per day).

   (in this case participants can present a small open work demonstration)

5 day intensive session (6/8 hours per day).

   (in this case participants can present a small open work demonstration)

The length can change according to the organisers’ needs.
