Ritual Performance - Dionysus and The Bacchae

Description: 

Course for actors, performers, directors, teachers with Dimitris Tsiamis

"Art and ritual, from the depths of antiquity, are inextricably linked. In contemporary theatre we observe a re-approach of the ritual through performances that seek a more substantial connection with the Other and the Unknown, focusing on the transformative and transcendental character of the artistic experience."
Dimitris Tsiamis

How familiar are we and how well do we know Dionysus, the God of Theater? Dionysus, the youngest and most famous Olympian god, the God with the dozens of names (Bacchus, Bromios, Eleuthereus, etc.) and the countless appearances (God of wine and ecstasy, god of fruitfulness and vegetation, etc.) is also the most enigmatic. Which versions of Dionysus do we meet in Euripides’ Bacchae and how much does the tragedy help us to understand him? To what extent could the understanding of Dionysus mean a deeper understanding of Theater?

In Euripides’ Bacchae, the arrival of Dionysus does not project a world “like a fairy tale” but a primitive world in which the forms of every creative and destructive element are revealed. Dionysus asks us to acknowledge his divine existence and to follow him even if we have not understood him. He introduces us to his ceremonies and cults so as the City can benefit from them. He punishes the political power – the tyrants – who do not honor him.

Continuing the line of online courses on the relationship between Ritual and Theater the aim of the course is to introduce the participants to the myth and spirit of Dionysus, as well as to Euripides tragedy of the Bacchae that – more than any other Greek tragedy – has been for a long time the focus of an intense interpretative argument. We will approach the Bacchae of Euripides through the principles of Ritual Performance practice and we will investigate practically – as a ritual – the arrival of Dionysus, his entry on stage and his first and so decisive monologue in the play, which announces the mysterious and contradictory elements of his nature.

Five Essentials for Directing

Five intensive meetings of two days each, online

We talk about the art of directing and the craft of directing. In summation, we will get the mastery of professional directing.

Jurij Alschitz, who has staged a multitude of performances all over the world, will combine the classical school of craftsmanship with innovative techniques in this course. Your own mastery can be seen when you can confidently deal with a wide range of options and start experimenting on a professional basis.

Directors ask actors to trust them. As artists we should not be afraid to take risks, but as directors we have an enormous responsibility – towards art and towards our actors. The greatest happiness is to create works together – and this process lies in the hands of the director. When it happens, we speak of mastery. There is no recipe for this, but there are professional ways to get there. This course invites you to do so, with 5 topics for 5 meetings over two days each. You can attend one or all of them:

Meeting one. Energy – a matter of life (18/19 May)

Meeting two. Composition – the road of life (25/26 May)

Meeting three. The space of events (1/2 June)

Meeting four. The director’s text analysis (8/9 June)

Meeting Five. The supreme discipline: The director’s work with actors (15/16 June)

In this workshop you will learn, explore and apply how we can use theatre as a way to create performance pieces from those who do not have a voice. Through the methodology of the Theatre of Yes, people’s creativity enhances their personal talent so that they believe in themselves and stop feeling that “I can’t, I’m not enough, I don’t know how to do anything.”

They can find themselves from another perspective and use their personal stories to help them escape the victimization in which they sometimes find themselves trapped.

 

To create theatre pieces from personal experience.
To understand how to unlock creativity from those who are marginalized.
To use theatre to break out of victimization and empower those who do not have a voice.

This workshop is for you if…

- You feel that you still have time to turn your life around so that the theatre is more present in it, bringing more happiness and greater personal and professional well-being.

- You want to awaken your body, your emotions and your creativity, which have been dormant for a long time.

- You would like to learn new theatre techniques to use with other groups and so that your life has a fuller purpose.

- You want to find a space where your sensitivity and creative intensity are understood in a group environment with other people like you.

- You long to contribute your grain of sand to society and you feel that creativity is a weapon against this neglect.

What is the Theatre of Yes?

A theatrical language with which to give life to high-quality works using the personal stories of people who are not professional actors but who have a lot to say. An honest, generous and beautiful language used with the result that the spectators present break their prejudices and we all become closer as a society.
The Theatre of Yes can help unlock your “Noes” and help other people to empower themselves.

Personal values ​​for the base of the Theatre of Yes

CREATIVITY

Creativity as a way to awaken consciences, share silenced stories and transform society. In all my years of experience I have seen how the Theatre has been an engine of change, transformation, realization and analysis, as well as a form of forgiveness and bringing communities together.

EMPATHY AND COLLECTIVE STRENGTH

I believe in the group as a way to learn, understand, share, advance and break prejudices and stereotypes. In the group you will find a safe, confidential and inspiring space for your learning process.

BEAUTY

Beauty as a means of showing traumas, metaphorical concepts and silenced stories. The processes of the Theatre of Yes are deep and at the same time vital, through which this beauty helps us to reconnect, enjoy, understand each other and move forward together.

SOCIAL JUSTICE

The work is methodical, analytical and validated by years of research and practical experience. This work is based on the use of the Theatre of Yes as a form of social justice, giving a voice to those who do not have one, hearing silenced stories and helping organizations in their creative transformation.

VITALITY

The positive, transformative energy that our body and its own movement give us, generating creativity. Vitality is important as a force for transforming lives, relationships, or past ideas.

Objectives

Break stereotypes and entrenched prejudices, bringing the most forgotten parts of society closer to a space of social and personal recognition.

Wake up and give a voice to the most silenced and abandoned stories in this world.

Create an “army” of creative Yeses to expand theatre as a tool to make the most oppressed groups in the world heard.

Sustain spaces where organizations can, through the creativity of the Yes, discover, reflect and transform entrenched, forgotten or muted themes.

Expand honesty, humility, generosity and simplicity as creative weapons for personal, social, and political understanding.

Re_Edit. La lingua del montaggio
Il re-editing può essere un ottimo laboratorio di sperimentazione ed affinamento del linguaggio audio-visivo per eccellenza: il montaggio.

a cura di Paolo Santagostino

DATE: dal 31 gennaio 2022 (chiusura iscrizioni 17 gennaio 2022)

DESCRIZIONE

Non è un caso che Premiere Pro, che si colloca esattamente al centro tra il "nonno" Avid ed il "figliol prodigo" Da Vinci, sia non solo da parecchi anni uno dei principali protagonisti assoluti della produzione audio-visiva mondiale ma abbia anche meritato l'attenzione da parte di alcuni dei più importanti professionisti del montaggio cinematografico. Primo fra tutti Walter Murch, montatore di capolavori della storia del cinema come Apocalypse Now ed autore di uno dei più importanti libri sul montaggio come In un batter d'occhi che in questi ultimi anni, durante le sue masterclass, ha spiegato i motivi che lo hanno spinto a passare da Avid a Premiere, non solo per l'evoluzione altamente professionale, costante ed esponenziale del software in sé ma anche per il continuo dialogo che i programmatori di Premiere mantengono e sviluppano con i Montatori stessi.

Con questo Atelier avrete l'opportunità di andare "a bottega" con un docente di montaggio della Civica Scuola di Cinema Luchino Visconti di Milano, che insegna Premiere da 7 anni e che da 20 lavora professionalmente nel campo dell'audio-visivo.
Naturalmente non ci rivogliamo solo a futuri studenti della Civica ma anche a tutti quei professionisti (od aspiranti tali) che sia nel pubblico che nel privato, vogliano rendere solide le proprie conoscenze di Premiere Pro e del linguaggio stesso del montaggio

Impareremo a conoscere e ri-conoscere i codici principali di questo linguaggio sperimentando con Premiere, cercando di piegarlo a nuovi scopi, non solo artistici, propri della nostra epoca.

PROGRAMMA

Scrive Andrej Tarkovskij nel suo libro Scolpire il Tempo: “Immagino così il modo ideale di fare un film: l’autore prende milioni di metri di pellicola (o milioni di ore registrate digitalmente su centinaia di Hard Disk) sulla quale, di seguito, secondo dopo secondo, giorno dopo giorno e anno dopo anno è stata seguita e fissata, per esempio, la vita di un uomo dalla nascita fino alla morte, e da tutto ciò, per mezzo del montaggio, tira fuori un'ora e mezzo di tempo sullo schermo […] e sarebbe interessante anche immaginare questi milioni di minuti passare per le mani di diversi registi/montatori in modo che ciascuno ne tragga il proprio film: quanto ognuno differirebbe dall’altro!”

Tarkovskij scriveva questo nei primi anni ‘70 e parlava di film. Allo stesso modo questa “provocazione” artistica può essere valida ancora oggi nell’epoca digitale non solo per i film di “finzione” ma anche per il documentario e/o per il cosiddetto “Cinema del Reale”, in generale per un qualsiasi reportage video, anche piccolo.

Benché nella realtà sia impossibile ottenere questi milioni di ore di girato, questa condizione di lavoro “ideale” non è così irreale e a essa si può e si deve tendere. In che senso? Si tratta di scegliere e di unire brani di fatti in successione, sapendo, vedendo e sentendo esattamente che cosa si trova fra loro, che genere di continuità li collega.

Attraverso la scelta di un argomento e di materiale reperibile sul web di tale argomento proveremo a montare e “ri-montare” dal blocco del tempo che racchiude le principali riprese da noi scelte attinenti all’argomento un nostro prodotto che riesca ad esprimere, attraverso l’arte del montaggio, la nostra personale visione dell’argomento scelto.

Non dimentichiamo che questa tecnica può essere utilizzata non solo dall'artista/regista ma per esempio anche dal conferenziere che voglia implementare l’esposizione di una sua relazione, dall'insegnante che voglia coinvolgere maggiormente i propri allievi nelle sue lezioni, dagli stessi studenti che vogliano rendere più performanti e multimediali i loro elaborati o tesi.

The Craft of Directing 2 - Creating the Space for Acting

Notification of expiration: 
Description: 

Course for emerging and experienced directors - Part 2

Creating the Space for Acting

Young Directors are full of ideas, concepts, imagination, energy … but there is one problem: how to transform it into a stage language, how to communicate with actors, how to organise one’s own artistic energy?

Jurij Alschitz, who has staged a multitude of performances all over the world, will reveal the secrets of his experience as well as the innovative tools for the new dramaturgical formats of 21st century theatre. He has choses three most important subjects for directors:

The performance as a space of events

We may have to repeat what we mean by a classical event, but we all know that the understanding of “event” has changed. Above all, the way we deal with it has changed.
Today we speak of the sphere of events, or of pixels of a performance … or of the non-event as the principle of artistic narrative … or of a performance as an explosion of images …
We are thus approaching so-called quantum cognition, which leads us to non-linear thinking. This cultural phenomenon is already anchored in young art production. How does one deal with it professionally? What does this mean for the art of directing?

Seven secrets of unfolding text and action

Text analysis is a cold word and yet it is the source of energy par excellence. What keys do we have at our disposal? Concepts have conquered the stage. Exciting as they may be, from the point of view of acting energy, they have quite a short life span. So how can we generate the vitality of the ideas that exist behind them so that they become the driving force of the play?

The mastery of conducting rehearsals

Are there rules for the relationship between actors and directors? Which ones lead to trustful creative work? How can the process be organised? What rehearsal methods do I have at my disposal? It is precisely because rehearsals in theatre and especially in independent companies are conducted in a non-hierarchical way that the question of the artistic sovereignty of the director arises in a very special way. It is the art of setting tasks, of mobilising the actor’s imagination, of forming an ensemble for a common artistic vision. 

3 sessions of 3 hours, Friday 3-6 pm UTC+1
If you cannot attend one of the sessions, you can watch it online until the next one.
The whole course is divided in three parts, each topic can be attended separately.
