In order to achieve an effective and useful theatrical action connected to what is happening or is about to happen, you have to be aware of many different factors: time, space, what was there before and what your aim is. Moreover, you have to train yourself to hold your attention for a long time, understand and introject different steps, such as coming to life, developing and bringing a theatrical action to an end. It is useful to know the rules of the game in order to break them whenever you need to.
Improvisation in theatre is a world of its own, it follows precise mechanisms. Practice develops your ability to respond to different situations in a short time and in a creative way, increasing your imagination and self-confidence on stage, which are important factors in an artist’s training.
The aim of the workshop is to provide the skills to create a theatrical scene, using improvisation as one of the possible tools. In the last part of the workshop, during a practical and experimental stage, students will analyze the differences between improvisation and “sudden” theatre.
Artists, actors, singers, teachers and anyone who is interested in developing his/her relational and creative skills.
