About this Event

The Morning (09:30-12:30): DRAMATURGY ON PRESENT TENSE

LEVEL: ALL LEVELS

DURATION: 3 hrs

About the workshop:

A workshop that explores the narrative mechanisms of improvisation, invites the performer to search for a state of body and consciousness which allows him/her to discover narrative structure instead of building it, making the improvised story intelligible, coherent and meaningful without this becoming an obstacle to improvisation itself. The work focuses on letting go of formulas or structured approaches to become a more intuitive player, opening yourself and your partner to a world of possibilities and inspiration.

The afternoon (14:00-17:00): THE MAGIC OF REALITY - GENRE BASED WORKSHOP

LEVEL: ADVANCED

DURATION: 3 hrs

About the workshop:

Magical Realism is a Latin American literary genre in which stories are built from the magic that we can find within what we consider to be more realistic or natural. In this workshop we are going to explore the narrative emotional tension and poetics of this beautiful genre. finding fantasy and magic from the metaphor of our lives and reality.
