The freedom of our identity allows us to enter the power of PURE ACTION.
The mask can be considered the bone structure of theatrical art.
It activates the subconscious mechanism of reflecting and identifying with archetypes.
The mask can guide us to step inside and explore the infinite possibilities of our expressive self.
Being deprived of our identity automatically leads to an expansion of consciousness and the body reconnects with its expressive potential.
Introduction to body awareness:
posture - state / energy level - occupy space
Relationship and group dynamics: ‘The herd’ - Listening and limited visibility
Using the mask:
Neutral - exploration of the anonymous and its power
Larvaria - symbolic characterisation and gestures
Expressive - tragicomedy and conflictive interaction
Training is always accompanied by exercises to develop the sense of rhythm, precision of gesture and the 'colpo di maschera'.
End of Course
Throughout the course, students will begin to build pieces (solos, duos, trios, groups) that they will present in a masked cabaret at the Oracles Theater (December 2021).
