Sharing Secrets - The Art of Composition

Share

Type:

Description: 

Jurij Alschitz

With the Sharing Secrets series of the Online Theatre Academy, theatre practitioners have the unique opportunity to learn from the life-long international experience of a Master in theatre.

The Art of Composition is the art of construction - of the role, the performance, or a play. It is the art of the director to link scenes, word images, emotions, themes, light, sound, etc. and to connect them in the most diverse ways. It is the art of combination, of leading and subordinating, of harmony and chaos. Montage shows itself to be an important part of the art of directing. Where should one start? What is important, what is not? On the basis of which definition of composition do I ask my questions? Are you aware of the difference between composition and the structure of a performance?

Composition is a sort of artistic language - this language is understood without words. The art of composition is particularly important for the modern language of the stage, because it shows the clarity of directing as if under a burning glass. It is compass that gives orientation to everyone - the artists on stage and the audience. 

Before you begin with a composition, you must know its laws and way of life. Composition in contemporary theatre is not just a technical form, but also a living one: it breathes, speaks to us and conveys the content of the play and the idea. The largest percentage of the success of a performance is based on a brilliant, dynamic composition of the director.

With this practice-oriented course, you can expect to learn a number of things beyond general school knowledge: about the many different types of composition, about secrets of montage and energy management, and how to approach theatre from a compositorial point of view.

This course will be held in 3 zoom meetings of 2 hours each. In case you miss a session, you have the opportunity to watch the recording in the two following days.

Renaissance of the Dialogue - Dialogical Principles

Share

Course for actors with 6 sessions of 2 hours on
Friday 28 May | Tuesday 01 June 2021 | Friday 04 June 2021 | Tuesday 08 June | Friday 11 June | Tuesday 15 June |2021
always at 18:00 – 20:00 UTC+2 | Berlin time

With this seminar I would like to invite you to discover the beauty of dialogue.

For many years we have been seeing mainly monologues on stage, even though many actors are on stage together. We are talking about an age of individualism, in the meantime also about the selfi-generation. The desirable insight “being enough yourself” turns into an inability to communicate, which in turn has become a major theme on stage. The issue of monological existence is influencing the practice at large. Playwrights and authors stopped writing dialogues; directors and actors stopped practicing the art of dialogue. How long is this to continue? Is it not the task of artists to reveal alternatives to reality? Is it not much more interesting to develop thoughts and insights together?

It is time to rediscover and revive the art of dialogue. Especially in times of physical isolation, dialogue is the path to freedom. The stage, once the birthplace of dialogue, calls for a renaissance and rediscovery of the most beautiful ability of human beings – spiritual exchange. More, we are speaking about energy-flow. Possible at the computer? Let’s try it out. Digital media in particular not only requires a completely new approach, but also enables new dimensions and forms of playing with the dialogical principle.

The seminar begins by exploring various forms and principles of dialogue in art. We need the dialogue with the Dialogue. The wisdom of the Dialogue might help us to discover a new potential for artistic and personal development. The moment I open my shell I expose myself to the risk – of losing or winning. Without opening-up a dialogue is not possible and without risk there is no artistic life.

Pop Philosophy presents - The Inner Theater: Poetics of Self & Other

Share

Type:

Category:

Description: 

In a time when we are quarantined from others, separated from the world yet utterly unable to be separate from what’s happening in it, how can our imagination provide relief, pleasure, play, companionship and presence?

In this workshop hosted by collective.aporia, let’s have affairs with alter egos, witness the strangeness of the self, listen well, and process the present melodrama with our bodies and minds. This workshop will involve interactive readings.

[Please note that this is a two month workshop. Participants can sign up for December, January, or both.]

The goals of this workshop:

  • collaborate with the absurdity of this moment 
  • create an alter ego to play with
  • write, create, imagine, express, perform  
  • get out of our comfort zones, ask tough questions
  • connect to self and other
  • engage with our bodies to process

Materials:

  • paper & pencil or pen (we encourage writing by hand)
  • hashtags: #letsgetfamous #yourefamous #werefamous #risingstar #beastar

Bio:

Gabrielle Lessans and Danielle Ferrara are friends, poets and escapologists. Their collaborative contributions to the community include co-teaching college seminars, running memory care workshops and organizing underground poetry parties. Along with poet Marie Conlan, they founded Nocturne School of Lucid Writing.

Dani (MFA, Creative Writing & Poetics) is an experimental writer who wishes to obey nothing but the wild, all-consuming power of imagination. She feels called to seek joyful fascination in the face of finitude. From pseudoscientific philosophy to trance and shadow writing, her poetics engages with a wide spectrum of disciplines.

Gabrielle (MFA & RYT) is an experimental poet who fixates on dream, space, desire & birdsong. Certified in over 600 hours of mindful, somatic, & intuitive training, she orients toward the hearth where deep play & healing most intersect. Her pedagogy mirrors her poetic process; in that both tend to hinge on a contemplative, gentle humor toward the bodymind & other. 

Gabrielle and Danielle have remained in a state of perpetual shmooz since meeting at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics. Often, they masquerade as fictional former child stars Pam Swart and Perpetua Shnee, AKA Pop Philosophy. They have yet to receive free coffee on their shared birthday.
