Relationship Between Text and Physical Actions

WORKSHOP dealing with a particular physical approach to text and the text’s presentation, conducted by Tage Larsen.

The workshop is based on a dynamic, visual and sound preparation of an actor through physical and vocal training. The training explores and challenges the actors’ physical ability, imagination, and capacity to create and mould expressions. The actors learn exercises and then begin to create some of their own. A personal set of actions is linked together to be repeated in various ways, working on space, rhythm, volume, resistance, opposition, colours, humour and so on. Improvisations and compositions are fixed and refined in their physical form and then confronted with a text. The texts are chosen by the participants: something they are eager to explore and transmit. The text will be realised in different ways. Text and action will give and take from each other.

For: 16 participants and 4 observers

Each participant is required to learn by heart a text before coming to the workshop.

The workshop can be conducted in English, Italian, Spanish, Danish and French.
