The Craft of Directing 2 - Creating the Space for Acting

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.

The Craft of Directing 1 - The Art of Composition

Share

Type:

Description: 

Course for emerging and experienced directors - Part 1

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.

3 online sessions of 3 hours

Renaissance of the Dialogue - Dialogical Principles

Christine Schmalor
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.

Taller de performance art | CUERPAS EN LA URBE intervenciones performativas en el espacio “público”

Share

Type:

Country:

City:

Description: 

Inmersión al mundo del arte de la performance desde nuestro entender la vida a partir del amOr Subversivo y los Cuidados eXtremos. Se iniciará un trabajo desde la cuerpa como espacio (de vida/primigenia). La cuerpa como espacio acogedor y/o inhóspito, como tierra, como hogar, como lugar. Es desde esta corporalidad (como espacio propio) que surge la sensibilidad y entendimiento de los demás espacios. En esta ocasión trabajaremos poniendo énfasis en la urbe y sus ritmos.
Se darán herramientas para desarrollar activaciones tanto unipersonales como en comunidad, entendiendo que el espacio que ocupamos/habitamos determina todos los demás espacios (cuerpas-lugares) y vice versa. Se trabaja a partir de ejercicios de escucha eXtrema identificando y reconstruyendo la memoria corporal como geografía político-afectiva. El reconocimiento de lx otrx y del ser en comunidad heterogénea se explora mediante la activación de los espacios múltiples internos/externos. La co-creación de intervenciones surgirá a partir de esta exploración de empoderamiento con nuestrxs cuerpxs, energías e imaginarios.

Description: 

El arte de acción o performance es un acto/arte experiencial, vivo y mutante. En este encuentro sentiremos qué es el amor subversivo y los cuidados extremos, cuidarnos para ser cuidadxs y cuidadorxs. Crearemos una cuerpa de afectos, saberes y nuevas sensibilidades para conocernos, aceptarnos, subvertir los cánones impuestos y con ello ser cuerpxs rebeldes activadas hacia nuevos horizontes que ya se divisan.

El proceso creativo surge a partir de esta exploración de empoderamiento con nuestrxs cuerpxs, energías e imaginarios convocando formas alternas de conexión y relación. Mediante propuestas de exploración profundizaremos en nuestrxs seres para reaprenderlxs y revivirlxs desde otros ejes. Se trabajará a partir de ejercicios de escucha eXtrema identificando y reconstruyendo la memoria de la cuerpx como geografía político-afectiva. De esta manera nos insertaremos de una forma más vivencial a esta práctica viviente.

Se darán herramientas para desarrollar performance desde el objeto y el espacio. Se crearán performance colectivas e individuales, cuestionando esta dicotomía. Se utilizará la cámara como ente performático explorando los formatos de acción viva, foto performance y vídeo performance.
