Organized by ATELIER Mask Movement Theatre

9th - 15th  AUGUST 2020

SAN MINIATO - Italy

 

The mask simplifies, rendering readable and immediate the movements of the soul.

 

The mask, covering the face of the actor and all its myriad possibilities for expression, completely transforms our way of researching the body’s expressivity and its relation to the space.

This gives the actor a new sense of his own presence, an emotional fluidity, an amplified and richer dramatic expression, a gestural language full of emotion, a return to a more global perceptual experience, and it allows us to rediscover the innate dimensions of play.

The body and the space are the truly essential referents which allow us to find a deeper authenticity in stage presence and in performance.

This is fundamental for lively and authentic theatre makers.

This intensive course is an opportunity to explore theatre pedagogy based on the ATELIER Mask Movement Theatre and the research of Matteo Destro. It is open to actors, directors, playwrights, theater teachers and anyone wishing to deepen their knowledge of Mask and Physical, Movement Based Theatre.
