Theatre Summer Camp “Pelion Greece 2019”
Agios Ioannis Pelion Greece, 25-31 August 2019
About Freedom: personal empowerment through devising theatre techniques.
Sanja Krsmanović-Tasić, Theatre director, choreographer, actress, dance and drama teacher Belgrade, Serbia
There is a growing passivity amongst the young men and women in the world today. They seem to be unable to react to problems that they face in everyday lives, not exercising enough their right to the freedom of speech and finding their place as equal actors in social change and reacting to injustice and problems in their environment. Through work in process and devised theatre we undergo a personal change while challenging ourselves with new levels of body and mind techniques.
This workshop will have in its development these phases
- identifying the issue , problem or theme, both personal and social for every participant,
- research of the theme, finding texts ,and material in connection with the theme
- devising work on physical scores and dances,
- organic work with the voice, singing and sound, creating soundscapes
- writing exercises, work on songs, creation of short theatrical sequence
- montage of individual and pair scenes into a larger presentation
Each workshop session will start physical and vocal warm up and training, based on the rich expertise and experience of the workshop leader from the traditions of East European laboratory theatre, Japanese dance and theatre techniques and elements of Meyerhold`s biomechanics.
