“Contact Improvisation” – Leonardo Lambruschini
The workshop is a continuation of the previous day session.
“Movement Research for Devised Theatre” – Nike Redding & Heidee Alsdorf
Our workshop will be focused on the use of improvisation as a movement research tool for devising. The goal will be to guide participants to their limits in the psycho-physical sense, find automatic reactivity in terms of group/chorus, and discover authentic and expressive stories which originate from the body itself rather than the cerebral/dramatic imagination.
LECTURES AND PERFORMANCES
“ACTING COMMEDIA – THEN OR NOW!” Philip Radice
Philip Radice talks about the role studying Commedia dell’Arte has to offer in the training of an actor and how it serves to understand theatre styles in staging a comedic production influenced by the genre.
17:30-18:30 “FILMARTE” – Sol Angelucci
Three short films will reflect different types of crisis that can be experienced by humans. In the first one, “Blasted”, the crisis hits the rock bottom, dark and brutally violent; in the second, “How to make a Shortfilm”, the character experiment a crisis, that could easily be experienced by any of us. Finally, “Desolation walk”, portraits a crisis that many lonely people in big cities experience.
20:30-21:00 “LA FAME” – Magda Pohl-Tontini & Anna Rasero
Two eccentric and grotesque characters at the edge of the absurd, locked in a room, a sort of no place, symbolizing the condition of the human being in today’s society. They undertake a metaphorical journey through the element of food, which wants to highlight the fragility and the difficulties of the “victims” of the consumer market. A show that wants to explore the problem of living in a society of “having” unless then a society of “being”.
21:30-23:10 “IL MALATO IMMAGINARIO REDUX by Moliere” – Atelier Teatro Fisico
An expressionistic adaptation of Moliere’s classic “Il Malato Immaginario”.
