FROM THE NEUTRAL MASK TO THE TRAGIC CHORUS (33h)
Friday at 18-21:00
(Including 1h lunch break)
Performers, teachers and directors, no matter what is your field in the performing arts.
Neutral mask is used as an educational tool in this workshop highly influenced by Lecoq-pedagogy. The aim is to awaken body conscious of the performer, to become more aware of the space around us and to learn about economy and ergonomy of the movement.
In the beginning we will work silently with pre dramatic state of Neutral Mask, enrich and variate our movement qualities with mimodynamics and prepare our poetic bodies to be in the service of the great stories. At the end of the workshop we will take of the masks and continue with text and movement chorus towards the territory of tragedy.
The high-quality Italian masks by Sartori, are used in the workshop.
