Training as a bridge to the creation of actor material
A workshop led by Carolina Pizarro
This workshop aims at researching different aspects of theatre interpretation. Carolina Pizarro will share her experience as an actress in search of autonomy and her vision of training as a bridge to the creation of actor material. Carolina Pizarro will teach exercises from her personal training, emphasizing how they intervene in the actor’s creative process.
Relation between the physical level of presence and the level of narration.
Presence based on physical and vocal training, applying principles of different techniques. The participants will create training sequences according to their needs.
Narration based on creative training, during which participants explore physical and vocal material that allows meanings to emerge, while differentiating between action and movement, seeking a natural presence in a scene without being realistic, awakening concerns and references through improvisation, and widening the possibilities of working with a character.
