KURSE UND Workshops

Wir haben große Freude daran, das, was wir in mehr als 20 Jahren Erfahrung gelernt und entdeckt haben, mit anderen zu teilen und es uns so noch mehr zu eigen zu machen und tiefer zu verstehen. PerpetuoMobileTeatro veranstaltet Intensiv-Workshops, deren Themen von der Interpretation über die Improvisation bis hin zur Kreation reichen und die sich an Profis, Semi-Profis sowie Studenten der darstellenden Künste richten. Die Workshops entwickeln sich ständig weiter, und die Termine werden fortlaufend aktualisiert. Bitte setz euch mit uns in Verbindung, wenn ihr Fragen habt oder euch anmelden möchtet. 

Nächster Workshop: „MASQUERADE“, 6 bis 10 Dezember 2024.

Masquerade

A workshop focusing on acting with masks, starting from the body and its endless possibilities of gathering and developing impulses, transforming them into organic, mouldable material. 

A specific physical training that will prepare us to meet and embody the mask. A discovery and analysis of those elements that, starting from the body, will allow us to give birth to a character and chisel it, making it expressive and credible. An opportunity to get to know the company’s work, outside and beyond the shows, getting in touch with its research on physical theatre and mask theatre.

• Physical training
• Physical score as limit and opportunity
• Guide point, trace, tone and tempo-rhythm
• Improvisation and inner monologue
• The half-mask and the body-voice
• The full mask and the non-verbal
• The character and the plot

We will awaken and nourish the imaginative process, activating and developing the connections between tensions, body postures, physical sensations and emotions. We will cultivate sensitivity in recognising and giving space to inner and external impulses, and the confidence to use them as material for creation, in that space of freedom where everything is constantly changing. All this will be used to embody the masks and induce them to reveal themselves in a ball at once intimate and mundane, sacred and profane.

Location: Spazio ELLE, Piazza Pedrazzini 12, Locarno, Switzerland.

The Words of the Body

Residential physical theatre workshop. A learning and experimentation programme including physical training and movement research, improvisation and partnerwork, interpretation and composition. Each participant, starting from pre-existing material or a new idea, will have the opportunity to create and present their own narrative framework, putting teaching and practice to good use.

• Physical training
Proprioception and perception
• The qualities of movement
• Improvisation and partnerwork
• Dramatizing movement
• Creation and composition
• Staging

The body is deepness, space that welcomes, hosts and reveals. The aim of physical training is to discover and release the connections between its parts, refining perception and approaching a state of transparent and accurate presence. Through the exploration of the contact with the ground, the centres of gravity, weight, impulses and partner work, we will enter into a playful dialogue with the body and the space.

Body and voice, their many expressive possibilities in relation to a space constantly to be defined and a time to be dominated, will be the tools to translate ideas into theatrical actions that are both concrete and symbolic. Dramatizing movement means to create a composition that has meaning and tension, that is comprehensible and able to communicate with the audience on a physical, emotional and intellectual level.
