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.

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.

Logistics:

  • This workshop runs from December 1, 2020-January 31, 2021.

Description: 

Hello,

We hope you have been well and are finding moments of joy in the craziness of these times <3

Collective.aporia is currently seeking facilitatators for our 2021 online workshops: 

What is collective.aporia?

Collective.aporia is an international, online arts collective focused on fostering radical peace and creativity through accessible arts workshops, *apo-press, and professional development support. We began our journey in August 2019, and have already seen substantial growth, including fully-booked workshops, an increase in global followers, and the ability to expand our reach in the community, such as with our Innisfree Workshop Series. You can read more about our mission in our manifesto.  

 

What would facilitating a workshop entail?

Our workshops are a month long and require the facilitator to record four 45-60 minute videos (one video per week). We also ask that you be available for at least one round of feedback for the participants, as well as help facilitate discussion on the designated Slack channel at least once a week. The topic of the workshop can be about anything you are interested in, as long as it aligns with collective.aporia’s overall mission for inclusivity, creativity, and accessibility. 

In addition to the four videos, you will be asked for the following: 

  • A promotional video (less than 2 minutes) introducing yourself and the workshop
  • A workshop description, including goals, materials needed, the amount of participants you would like, etc. 
  • Your photo and bio
  • A marketing image with a CC license. If you cannot find one you like, we are happy to provide you with options. 
  • A required debrief/feedback meeting at the end of the workshop

Collective.aporia will take care of all the marketing and promotion for the workshop, but we do encourage you to share the posts on your own social media platforms. 

 

Will I be paid?

YES! One of the main goals of collective.aporia is to actually pay artists for their work. That being said, we operate as a small nonprofit, meaning we survive on donations. All donations given by your workshop participants will be split with you 50/50 in a co-op model. Our 50% goes back into the collective to pay for marketing and operation expenses, as all of the collective.aporia team works on a volunteer basis. You will receive your stipend after the debrief/feedback meeting at the end of the workshop. 

 

Where do I sign up?

If you would like to facilitate a workshop, please send the following details to collective.aporia@gmail.com with the subject "Workshop Proposal":

  • A short (2-4 paragraphs) proposal explaining the idea for your workshop, how you will engage participants working with different art mediums, and at least 2 overall goals. Please also inlclude how your workshop relates to collective.aporia's overall mission. 
  • A short explanation of your prior teaching experience and pedagogical values. It is okay if you have never formally taught before. Explain the experiences that you believe have prepared you for leading a workshop. 
  • A short bio.

Thank you again for your interest. We are sending lots of love and magic your way. 

 

Sincerely, 

 

collective.aporia

Description: 

Starting this September, STUDIOBOOK {ONLINE} is a new eight-week short course for artists based around the UK, led by Mark Devereux Projects. Practical, discursive and tailored to every participant, each workshop will address key aspects of developing your creative practice.

Made up of twelve, 2-hour workshops and two, 1-hour one-to-one mentoring sessions, STUDIOBOOK {ONLINE} will address the participating artists’ key questions and concerns; providing information, advice and guidance alongside open discussions and peer-to-peer sharing.

Marking the return of our successful STUDIOBOOK artist development programmes from 2015/16 & 2017, we’ve made some changes to ensure our work is more accessible following the recent impacts of COVID-19. We’ve simplified the way we are operating and transferring this year’s programme to be produced completely online. We hope this will widen our reach to those artists that may have parental, caring or other work commitments that would affect physical attendance.

The full cost for the programme is £380, with payment options available to spread the cost of the workshops across 1-3 months.

September - October 2020
