Viewpoints

From 15 from February to 21 in June of 2023
Wednesday and Friday from 9.30am to 11am
With Mar Medina

To do theater is, among other things, to stage the body with all the expressive and communicative burden that this decision entails: a body located in the space offered to the gaze of the other for a time is already a transmitter. There is therefore a drama that from the physical point of view considers the body as an essential element for structure and composition. A body that functions as the backbone of action and interacts through movement and word. Viewpoints, scenic points of view, offer us the possibility of understanding and practicing this language, differentiating aspects that give meaning to the action itself.
The performer deploys listening and the ability to make decisions here and now in relation to architecture, topography, form, gesture, tempo, duration, repetition, and kinesthetic response. This work is inspired by the Viewpoints of the choreographer Marie Overlie that Anne Bogart and her theater company, SITI partner, have led to the training of the performer and the creation. It is an essentially practical course, in the format of an improvisation laboratory, which aims to open up a space for play and exchange between students of acting, drama and other performing arts professionals.

Alexander individual technique

Schedules to be specified with the teacher
50 min sessions
With Mar Medina

The Alexander Technique is a method through which we can learn to use ourselves more efficiently, coordinating thought with movement, releasing tension, and saving energy. A gentle system that helps us detect and change habits, both postural and use, that interfere with the ordering and coordination of this indispensable tool for life that is our body.

Through simple activities and from the movement, we will raise sensitive receptors found in the muscles, tendons and skin in order to improve our own perception and the sense of kinesthesia and thus improve the use and quality of the movement itself .

The sessions aim to provide tools that, from the Alexander Technique (TA), allow to improve the quality of movement of those performers, such as musicians, dancers, actors or actresses, who use their body as means of expression. We will learn to use ourselves more freely from a conscious body oriented towards availability.
