PHYSICAL on STAGE
Summer Intensive 
A Workshop by Carlos Rodero
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 post-dramatic 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.

We will ask all participants as well to prepare an exercise improvisation to be developed during the workshop. We will explain what is this about.
We are considering to invite one GUEST teacher to join some session. I case we succeed we will announce it as well.
The second part of Friday session will be an open session when participants can share their exercise with invited colleagues and professionals.
We are working in a complementary activities programme which might include chats, performances and the chance to connect with other training. Follow this event and keep you informed.
We will accept students or performers who base and inspire their work in the body, movement or physicality [dancers, physical theatre performers], from any part of the world.
In order to work with a certain detail and deepness the maximum of participants will be 12, accepted by a strict order of registrations.
We do not want that money become an issue that prevent anyone from attending, so we offer some supported grants with a significant reduction of the fee. If you are in a tight situation, write us and let’s talk about it.
