Creative work in this session focuses on:
The woman destroyed – Monologue – The age of discretion, by Simone de Beauvoir, and aphorisms, phrase book, letters with her daughters or colleagues by Marie Sklodowska Curie.
Participants must read these texts before the session and, if possible, bring a copy in their own native language. Participants must chose and learn by heart a fragment from Simone de Beauvoir and one from Marie Sklodowska Curie.
The session will be structured into two main fields:
  • Training: Physical (plastics, dynamic-impulse-relation, rhythmic body,  actor's acrobatics, dance improvisations based on African styles) Vocal  (breathing and emission techniques, physical resonators, vocals, dynamic and agogic) and Singing (monodic and choral singing, chironomia, pitch and modulation, voice-movement-space relationship)
  • Creative Work: improvisation and dynamic use of space, composition’s exercises, Actor's composition and dramaturgy, creative pathway, techniques of montage. A final montage, based on the proposed text, will be show as conclusion of the work.  
Working sessions are held every day from 9 AM to 1 PM, and from 3 PM to 7 PM. Other individual sessions will be held at different timing, according with the development of the work.
During the evenings work demonstration, videos, and lectures complementary to the work program, will be offered.
