International Workshop of Physical Theatre in Public Space
- If it was my street… -
in the frame of the Street Art Festival in Warsaw
Workshop is dedicated to people aged 19-30 interested in theater and performing arts, art students and young artists from Poland, France and Germany.
Leaders: Paulina Almeida (Portugal), Dawid Żakowski (Poland)
This year workshops will take place 24.06. – 07.07.2014 in the frame of the Festival Sztuka Ulicy (Street Art Festival - www.sztukaulicy.pl).
During everyday classes participants will learn basic issues of physical theatre. From the beginning they will take part in physical activities in public space (dialog with the public, improvisations, characters construction). On the basis of personal experience and inspiration related to urban spaces participants will develop solo and group actions, which will be presented in a performance during the Festival Sztuka Ulicy.
The work will be done on the basis of the texts of French, German and Polish writers. Selected texts are: "The Danton Affair" of Stanisława Przybyszewska, "The Passion and Death of Jean Paul Marat" of Peter Weiss and "Balcony" of Jean Genet. During the workshop will be developed theatrical structure which will use individual improvisations created during the project by the participants.
At the end of the workshop will take place a presentation of work - performance, which will be a part of the program of the Festival Sztuka Ulicy in Warsaw.
Languages of the workshop: Polish, French, German (translations will be provided)
