Workshops 2019

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.

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.

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 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.

NOW YOU SEE IT... A class to work on the improvised stage.
Space, objects and characters live together in a place created befre the eyes of the audience and our partners. If you see it, they will too. In this class we will work on the concepts of use of the space, focus distribution, balance of forces and status and framing, using theatre plays, movies, photos and paintings as examples.
