The objective of the workshop is to utilize the tools of the actor's craft to search for intentionally articulated organic behavior. We will explore essential elements of the actor's craft such as organicity, relation, contact, impulse, intention, action, and reaction as the students explore the fundamental difference between movement and action. Under the direction of Mario Biagini, who closely worked with Grotowski from 1986 till Grotowski’s death in 1999, the workshop participants will work on "acting propositions." Biagini will guide students in experiencing first-hand the basic aspects of the practical research at the Workcenter.

 

In advance of the workshop, each participant is asked to prepare a 3-minute "acting proposition," based on either a song or a short text from any genre, including plays, poetry, and prose. Alternatively, participants can also choose to utilize both a song and a text, inside the same “acting proposition." The "acting proposition" should be a repeatable draft, with a beginning, a development and an end: a short performance with its own inner dramaturgy. These "acting propositions" will be further worked upon and developed during the workshop. 


Feel free to bring significant objects or clothes needed for the "acting propositions”.
