Dance of Intentions - Roberta Carreri

The WORKSHOP is conducted by Roberta Carreri and is divided into two parts.

The first part concentrates on the actor's physical training - on the awakening of the actor's presence.

The second part focuses on vocal work, with exercises that awaken the sonority of the voice and develop the capacity to make vocal actions in space.

The aim of the workshop is to transmit, in a relatively short period of time, the basis of an actor's training that can help young actors to discover their stage presence through the exploration of a formalised stage behaviour, and to provide the experienced actors with a way to free themselves of their performing automatism and clichés.

The workshop focuses on the perception of the individual actor's presence in relation to space and to other actors on stage; on how to find ways to be present in the action one is doing and at the same time be ready to react; on how to find the axis of the body, work with the "in-tensions" and achieve a dynamic immobility. The workshop explores different qualities of energy of the gaze and teaches how to identify different points in the body where the leading impulse of a movement in space starts. The participants work with the creation of physical and vocal actions, and how to carry them out with different qualities of energy - for example slow motion. And finally the workshop focuses on vocal training with body resonators and on the relationship between vocal and physical actions.
