Contemporary Mime Workshop with Luis Torreão
How to transform a daily gesture in a stage action, in order to achieve precision, articulation and musicality of movement?
This course aims to study the different stages of devising a physical score. We use the word “score” in relation to musicality that we will apply to the movement. We will explore the foundations of a creative process in the field of contemporary mime, which finds its theatrical quality in the precision and dynamics of action. Through the technique of corporeal mime we will work on how to isolate different body parts to have a richer corporal vocabulary, how to represent the effort on stage, the observation of the world around us will inspire us to find rhythmic variations that stimulate movement. We will also work on the composition of an individual score or a duet.
The preparation exercises during the first sessions will be oriented towards the notion of the animal in movement, the awakening of the spine and the connection between the centre of the body with its extremities.
