During the organisation of the ISTA/NG session scheduled on the island of Favignana (Italy), 12-22 October 2021, the economic contingency created by the corona virus has been taken into consideration. To help all those who are unable to find the financial resources necessary to participate, ISTA/NG offers a remote digital course on theatre anthropology for students, scholars and professionals who cannot attend in person.

The digital course of ten lessons is entitled:

LEARNING TO SEE
INTRODUCTION TO THEATRE ANTHROPOLOGY

The presence of the actor/dancer
and the perception of the spectator

The course, conceived and directed by Eugenio Barba and Julia Varley, consists of ten lessons for a total of fifty hours.

Each lesson is introduced by Eugenio Barba and includes:

  • a part with archive material and films from previous ISTA sessions,
  • a part with direct live streaming from the theoretical-practical lessons, explanations and demonstrations happening during the ISTA/NG session in Favignana,
  • an interactive part of one hour of dialogue with the artists present in

The ten lessons deal with the main topics of theatre anthropology: the technical principles that actors and dancers of different cultures have in common, the difference between daily behaviour and extra-daily behaviour, the pre-expressive level and the construction of stage presence, animus/anima (vigorous and soft energy), the actor/dancer’s strategies to capture the spectators’ attention, and the effect on their kinesthetic sense and perception.

 

The actors and dancers invited to teach are

Keiin Yoshimura (kamigata mai, Japan);
Parvathy Baul (vocal technique and Baul dance, India);
I Wayan Bawa (Balinese dance);
Yalan Lin (Chinese opera Nanchuan);
Juliana Pardo and Alicio do Amaral (Cia. Mundu Rodá, cavalo marinho, Brazil);
Lydia Koniordou (classical tragedy, Greece); 
Caterina Scotti, Alessandro Rigoletti and Tiziana Barbiero (flamenco, kathakali and odissi dance, Teatro tascabile di Bergamo, Italy);
Julia Varley (Odin Teatret, Denmark).

 

Practical Information

The course costs 300 euros and will be in English and Italian (with subtitles or simultaneous translation).
