26 May Elements of performance – Intensive summer course 2nd edition (Jul 3-7, 2017)
5 days of intense training. What does it mean to present a theatre show? Which skills are necessary to become an actor/performer? How can we become “transparent” on stage? How to achieve trust and reliability as an actor? How to convince the audience to believe in you? During these 5 days, we’ll embark on a journey through the world of performing.
Every day we will explore different fundamentals of stage work. We will assist you to become aware of which skills are necessary to develop a theatre performance. Our aim is to give you the opportunity to experience all these elements and how they work together in creating the theatrical reality, a world that gives us a unique space to explore the diversity of creative process. In this 2nd edition of the workshop, we’ll travel again in an exploration of the pillars of theater work to discover its main elements: partnership, body, voice, character and presentation. Give yourself the chance to travel with us and have fun on the way, discovering the beauty that lies behind every performative act!
