Description

Workshop #1: Introduction to Spanish Classical Theatre and Verse run by Paula Rodriguez
11.15 - 12.45

This workshop is an introduction to Spanish Classical Theatre through the works of one of it’s most significant authors, Pedro Calderon de la Barca.

The aim of this workshop is to facilitate the understanding of the essence of Classical Spanish plays and verse, and to discover how they are still relevant in the present day.

First, we will talk about the basics of Spanish Golden Age Theatre: the most celebrated authors and plays, and the main themes that appear in the texts. Then, we will delve into the play Life is a Dream by Calderon de la Barca, including an analysis of Spanish verse and its best-kept secrets.

The course is an introductory level and no particular skills are needed. Please bring a notebook and pen if you wish to take notes.

This session will take place in English.


Workshop #2: Training for Actors; Bodily Poetics run by Paula Rodriguez
13.15 - 14.45

This workshop is an introduction to the physical and vocal training called: Bodily poetics, developed by our theatre company "Teatro Inverso". Our method explores how to find the connection with words through physicality when working as actors with classical text.

Through this work you will achieve better understanding of how to use physicality in order to allow the voice to reveal the emotions and thoughts hidden in every line, in an organic and personal way. For this we will use monologues from the Spanish Golden age play Life is a Dream by Calderón de la Barca.

In this physical training session we will practice a series of exercises we have created and developed through the study of Anthropological and Classical Theatre.

The session will be run in English using the translated version (by Teatro Inverso) of the Spanish original text.

This is an introductory workshop but previous acting training is needed (any level from beginners to BA students to professional actors or directors). Bring comfortable clothes.
