The silent-film style
The students are ready to get into the language gesture. To search the most true and most universal expressivity through the body to tell stories and create situations of acting.
We will work on the « attitudes » (the climax of a movement) to find images and immediate expressivity, then we will touch on the larges human emotions and we will see how could we express them in the organic way.
The silent-film style on stage push us to find the right tools and thanks to his constraints we have the great opportunity to be creative. So the students have to be clear on their creations on stage and they work on the gesture dramaturgy.
Technical exercises, improvisations and creation at the end of the workshop are on the program.
[Not mandatory but we recommend to follow the previous workshop about the Comic style]Neste módulo o universo do Cinema Mudo servirá de inspiração para o trabalho de composição dos actores que irão investigar a poesia, os códigos, o humor, a ingenuidade, a musicalidade e as possibilidades dramáticas do género.
