Workshops 2018

IMPROVISED DRAMATURGY
This workshop is aimed to every improviser wanting to improve their narrative skills. As improvisers, we are more than just actors; we are also writers and directors of a unique, original play. In this workshop we will work on different narrative structures and different alternatives to build theatrical characters and reaching more complex improvised stories.

THE TINY GLASS PERSON
Based on Gianni Rodari's "Grammatica della fantasia" chapter where he explains how to create characters based on different elements. In this class we will work the infinite possibilities and combinations of elements, objects, animals, sensations and feelings to achieve stronger and deeper characters.

THE MOMENT
If we don't know where we're going… why hurry?
Some people think that improv is speed, dynamic, immediacy. But it's not just that. It's also pause, harmony and silence. It's a play written and performed on the spot and, like every play, it has its moments. Through this workshop we will try to find the joy of the scene. The joy of stopping and looking at the scenery, to develop inner and outer conflicts, to enjoy our characters, to deepen the dialogues and to consciously delay the resolution through the use of music.

THE INVISIBLE DIRECTOR
The use of a sign language based on a simplification of the soundpainting technique created by Walter Thompson allows the director to sidecoach with compromising the theatrical experience. We will also explore the role of the director in the complex improv triad (actor-writer-director) and the creation of our own structures and formats.
