Behind the Curtains
What is behind the curtains? The magic world of theatre and presence; the real world of obstinate daily training, so as to be able to say "I'm here and now" on the stage; the actress on her feet, wearing the shoes of her characters.
This work demonstration is an invitation to travel alongside a theatre woman through years of training to acquire her craft, meeting different faces of her own face. It speaks of chaos, difficulties and ways to solve them, attempts and failures; and especially, it tells about the encounter with her teachers, touching upon topics like discipline, and emotions during preparation and at the moment of facing the spectators.
The actress will present fragments of some of her performances with the intent of understanding and of better visualizing the all-mysterious moment of passage from technique to stage fiction.
