PHYSICAL on STAGE is an introduction to the use of Physical Theatre Techniques focused on performers —dancers and choreographers— who aspire to transgress the definition of the conventional performance and get into the field of experimentation. It aims to establish the basis for a physical language training understood as the main driving force for the dramaturgy of a postdramatic staging.

It intends to make the performer aware of his role in the creative process of an inclusive performance. To do this, we offer a guide that can help the performer to explore and develop his initiative and creativity and try to motivate him to deepen into his knowledge & experience.

A training based on exercises that generates creative answers from the dancers to concrete scenic issues and explore their skills and limits. A work that prompts and fosters the needs from the artists and its own world possibilities as well as explores the borders between dance and theatre. Intend to give extra tools to dancers in order they achieve their own way of understanding how to became a more complete performer.

Complementary MASTERCLASSES

We include three masterclasses [aerial dance, butoh & physical clown] which will support and enrich the main guide lines of the workshop.

BRAINSTORMING CAFE [on Dramaturgy]

Every evening there will be a talk-discussion in a warm Budapest cafe on a concret topic related to a non-traditional dramaturgy, and in one of them the group will attend to a performance in a Budapest venue. We might invite as well a choreographer/director to join the chat.

PRACTICE RESEARCH

We will ask all participants to prepare an exercise improvisation to be developed during the workshop and to be shown in an open session the last day with a guest audience.
