Webinar on Theatre Anthropology with Eugenio Barba

On the film, after seeing a Japanese nô scene from the play Dojoji and an extract of Carolyn Carlson’s modern dance, Eugenio Barba comments.
“Let’s try to strip the actors of their costumes, mask and music, elements that intertwine in the total expression that affects the spectator’s perception.
We will then notice the level of scenic anatomy with three technical principles outlined by Theatre Anthropology: alteration of balance, oppositions and consistent inconsistency.”

Free participation. Registration at:

The webinar is in Spanish with simultaneous translation into English and Italian.

“Eugenio Barba and Julia Varley answer questions concerning Theatre Anthropology during a ten lesson course once a month.
The ten monthly lessons are free but registration is obligatory.
Before each lesson, participants will be requested to watch one of the ten films on Theatre Anthropology realised by Eugenio Barba, Claudio Coloberti and Julia Varley. The films include explanations by Eugenio Barba, excerpts from ISTA (International School of Theatre Anthropology) sessions since 1980 and other archive material. Having seen the film, participants will send written questions before the webinar to the address which will be given to those who register. “
