De Amagaki a Shibugaki, geography of an apprenticeship
The result is an opening up of the living process regarding the work of an actress who puts the spectator in the center of the cracks, efforts, searches and discoveries. An actress who dances and builds on the risk of the search, which is revealed through different disciplines, and offers fine edge of a body that perseveres in the game of physical and vocal actions, improvisation and composition. Performance shares the research behind the construction of a show that will serve as a tool for deepening and supporting other professionals dedicated to stage work.
In this case Carolina, under the direction of Julia Varley, shares what she has collected over the years of research: what she writes in her travel log. The knowledge she received in meetings with teachers is woven into the nerves of political vision according to her origins and social reality and approached from the point of view of who is learning.
Actress: Carolina Pizarro
Directed by Julia Varley
A co-production: Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium (Denmark) and Triskel Artes Escénicas (Chile)
"A live working log dancing among theoretical and practical, technical and creative, mental and experiential. A constant dialogue with the viewer, who is invited to know the routes for the preparation of an actress in continuous learning. An actress who travels seeking to develop their own theatrical language, keeping in mind the possibility and the consistence of theatrical and life experience´s transfer.
The oriental kaki is an ancestral tree dating from thousand years ago. You can take to a 70 or 80 years old tree and its fruits, without exception, will be bitter. Only when they are more than 100 years its first sweet fruits starts to ripe. Then, what does mankind do to have sweet fruits earlier?
They go to an old tree and tear the sweet fruit´s branch to graft it on a younger tree. Some on them will start to give sweet fruits, while some others will continue giving bitter ones. That´s experience handover to me."
