Ricerca Lab

Percorso Rosso

Frist Level

The personal growth and harmonious development of the individual are the goals of all our theater laboratories.


This lab is a personal research path leads us and reveals the pleasure of doing theater through individual and group work.


We explore the art of theater without giving ready-made answers and foregone solutions.


Theater is a complete and complex form of communication and makes others empathize with what we create in the laboratory and  «come to life» on stage.


There is no other art form in which the complicity between those who make and those who receive can be so intense and unique. Theater is the art of 

«here and now», the art of «being», without prejudice or  limitation.

Try... to be !

PROGRAM of Laboratory

Contents will be tailored to the needs of each participant and to the interests of the group.

The truth of theater lies in catching the essence of things, and it arises from the practice in the laboratory. At the same time, the truth of theater is nurtured in the moment of meeting the audience.
We build the work together. The exercises, theater games and improvisations are developed gradually. They are the basis of «theatrical grammar». The laboratory is organized in three parts.

First Part  PRACTICE

Acquire the tools and theater language through exercises, games and training, by developing the group's internal relationships, working on:

Body

perceive and listen to oneself in order to be aware of the expressive potential of one's body

Me and the others

concentration and attention on what is happening around to know how to move with others

Rhythm

explore the space-time dimension and the rhythm of the actions

Action - reaction

reaction times; dynamic concatenation of the action

Voice

explore the voice to free it and find the original intensity

Words

beyond the common sense and out of vocabulary to discover the density of the message

The actor and his dimension

deepen dynamics and mechanisms to cause complicity between the actor and the audience

Stage space

give shape and meaning to the scene with our actions and expressiveness

Improvisation

verbal and non-verbal, creating scenes on a theme, using everything assimilated so far

Second Part  STAGE WRITING

The script writing is inspired by the practice of improvisation. 

Creating text

  • The idea is the result of individual and group research and can be inspired by a play, poetry, short story, musical piece and more

  • It takes shape in the improvisation phase and continues with the table work: read-through, group discussions and confrontations, writing the text

 

Stage writing

  • Writing is a collective process

  • Learn to distinguish the necessary actions from the insignificant ones

  • Cut and clean up the work until it works and has the right rhythm

Third Part  PERFORMANCE

The performance is the phase in which we put into practice what we created in laboratory, we give life to our ideas and express our inner world.


The performance is different from the previous phases:
    • it is the bearer of new elements, new knowledge and surprises
    • draws a thin connection line between us and the audience

Everyone participates in the creation of the costumes of the characters, in the scenography, in the choice of props and music. Everyone is free to improvise and be creative with rigor and seriousness during rehearsals.

The performance as well as the whole path are the result of collaborative work, and the success of the individual is the success of the group.
