Live performance takes place in a three-dimensional space. The way we approach this has a direct and strong effect on what we communicate as performers. By exploring ways in which space is manipulated and expressed in pictures, images, and other two-dimensional representations, we will develop new tools to play and transform the way we address the stage.
This workshop is an exploration of ideas that aim at empowering the use of space in order to enrich the visual aspect of our stories. We will play with conceps such as proportion, framing, balance, time, and others.
As we are inspired by images this workshop is accompanied by a series of images and videos that help ilustrate the use of space choseen by artists. We wil look at the work of masters such as Goya, Picasso, Rembrand, Velazquez, Michelangelo and others as a reference for the exploration of a visual language that will enhance the poetic quality of our work.
This workshop was born in Berlin in 2014 as a special request for a festival. It’s constantly evolving with new ideas and new ways of approching preexisting knowlege. It has been taught in more than 12 diferent cities around Europe, Asia and the Americas.
