LEIMAY Ludus Lab with theater master Mario Biagini
Associate Director of the Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards
This LEIMAY Ludus Lab is open to actors, dancers, body-rooted performers, or anybody interested in exploring the elements of the actor’s craft. Within the whole duration of this LEIMAY Ludus Lab taught by guest director Mario Biagini, participants will explore fundamental elements of the actor’s craft such as organicity, relation, contact, impulse, intention, action and reaction, the relation between process and form, and strive towards an understanding of the difference between movement and action. Under the direction and guidance of Biagini, participants will work on the creation of individual and collective acting scenes, on singing ancient traditional songs, and learn elements of the physical training developed at the Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards over the past twenty-eight years. These modules will allow participants to approach the basic aspects of practical research at the Workcenter, and to discover their own individual and unique approach to creation. Modules will explore the basic but complex constitutive elements of the actor’s craft:
• Relation: precision / organicity
• Relation: tradition / individual work
• Relation: ritual / drama
• Composed movement and rhythm
• Vibration of the voice
• Body resonators and spatial resonance
• Awareness of space and reacting to its constituent elements
• Improvisation: the impulses / the vigilant mind
• Improvisation within a structure
• Search for a precise line and logic of impulses and physical actions: the score
