Module 1: "Energy in action" by Carolina Pizarro
This module is focused on the research about “pre-expressive level of acting” in order to discover different kinds of ”energy in action” and how to apply this in a creative process. For that purpose, we gather and offer a dialogue between concrete tools of ancestral disciplines, like Kalaripayattu (Martial Art from India) with different principles such as repetition, composition and opposition based on the Theatre Anthropology.
The participants will use silence, diverse music and texts in order to dialogue with tiredness and develop resistance, patience and perseverance; increase effort capacity and keeping calm by being in present.
Module 2: The space in between led by Ariel Gutierrez.
In this module, the participants are invited to awaken their sensorial body, gaining a deeper understanding of the essential dynamic forces within any art form, their vital function in the construction of artistic work, and how to apply them to dramatic creation.
We will explore the idea of embodiment as a key element in the process of developing original work linking movement and emotion, life and art, the physical body and the poetic body through different elements such as music, poetry and architecture.
Module 3: Dwell the abyss led by Luis Alonso
In this module we will work in stilts, learning how to safely stand up, walk, fall and jump as if stilts would be our own legs.
During this process of understanding how to walk with "new legs", the participants will explore their creativity based on the notion of creating from uncertainty. We will venture far from the idea of preparing the necessary tools to be able to succeed on stage, confronting ourselves to the unknown and the difference.
By giving "First Steps" in stilts, the participants will deal with their resistances and fears through exercises that are designed to confront the doubt and improvise with their best dedication and disposition in face to challenges. In this way, create and generate new ideas, using their strengths and physical intelligence to ignite their individual art purposes. Having a new body could lead us to learn how to walk again.
