Main topics to be discussed

Neither Us, Nor the Others : The Body, The Mask, The Stage

Workshop on the Commedia dell’Arte.  What does the Commedia dell’Arte represent for us today ? This is neither a rescue operation nor a history of the theatre. On the contrary, the instruction will concentrate on the work of the actor. The framework, comedy, typecasting, the use of the mask; all these represent a fundamental artistic exercise. The workshop offers a knowledge of the principal characters, their expressiveness, their voice and their ability to move on stage.

Workshop 1 : Francesco Facciolli - 20th to 23rd August

To communicate through body language or mime

To learn to develop the five senses, to reach out to the imaginary and to imitate, to discover the principles of freedom of movement, breathing, relaxation... To understand the technique of mime, to imitate animated or imaginary objects. To explore body language, dramatic no-verbal construction, as well as pantomime for one, two or three actors... The instruction will concentrate on these themes, from the simplest to the most complex task, best suited to the various levels of the participants and the available space.

Workshop  2 : Juraj Bencik - 25th to 28th August
