THE DAILY WORK WILL BE DIVIDED INTO TWO PARTS
First part -"PRE-EXPRESSIVE" MOMENT
This part includes psycho-physical training of the actor both in groups and as individual exercises inspired by the work of masters of the 20th century theatrical tradition (Konstantin Stanislavskij, Vsevolod Meyerhold, Michael Chekhov, Jacques Lecoq, Jerzy Grotowski and Eugenio Barba).
The work will focus on the study of scenic action: physical, vocal and inner.
Attention will be given especially to the physical action and the study of its three parameters (speed, volume, and intensity).
Every participant will be solicited and helped to express her/himself, through various theatre techniques with a physical approach. Through both individual and group exercises the actors will develop both their attentiveness and stage presence, rediscovering and exploring new creative possibilities of their own bodies, voices and imagination.
Second part -"EXPRESSIVE" MOMENT
In the “expressive” moment the work will focus on the theme “Elsewhere” as a creative starting point.
The creation of characters will be linked to the theme through elaboration of scores (sequences of actions) related to a text and props.
Participants will choose a monologue linked somehow to the theme proposed. The monologue can be taken from plays from the dramaturgical repertoire or from a poetic text of any author to their own liking.
With all these creative materials, helped and directed by the pedagogues, participants will give life to their own original staging, taking care of each detail, from the creation and composition of the scenic space to the choice of costume and objects used by the character.
