United Productions: Dramaturgy of Space interweaving the Body and Time, April-May 2016

This workshop will allow participants to create practical, spontaneous and intuitive theatrical-performative vocabulary to quickly generate a theatrical piece.

During the workshop students will use different tools from contemporary theater performative techniques such as "Viewpoints" to explore the theatrical codes of space, time and movement. At the same time, they will use elements of "devised theater" to create a theatrical production without having to start with a play. Finally, attendees will build scenic compositions with or without a text and share their work in the workshop.

Participants will need to bring as working material a significant visual image, a music composition of any genre (classical to contemporary), and a copy of an extract from a text (no more than one page), dramatic, literary, poetic or journalistic.
