This workshop’s aim is to enter into the world of physical theater and, more precisely, the corporeal mime. Open to all levels, the workshop provides a space of discovery for all those who wish to explore the technical and artistic skills that help in developing interpretive skills, to improve physical control and expressivity, putting the body at the service of the imagination.
– Stage presence: muscle tone and dramatic intention.
– Physical and spatial articulation
– The rhythm and texture of movement
– The weight as dramatic tool
– Study of displacing
– Physical dialogues and relationships on stage
– Creation exercises
