THROAT: In Three Movements
This workshop is addressed to those who want to engage in a theatre experience that embraces both the point of view of the actor and that of the spectator. We are aiming to create a performance in three movements inspired by: Anton Chekhov’s short story Misery, the voice of forensic anthropologist Eva Klonowski and the ancient role of doula, a woman who provides support to another woman. Through exercises, in an empty space, a method of work will be used that puts less emphasis on the opus and more on the process of its development.
There is no age limit. Children can take part if accompanied by a relative.
The workshop (29–31 October and 2–6 November) will culminate in work demonstrations, in English and Polish, which will involve all workshop participants. Rehearsals will be held on 5 and 6 November, 2pm – 6:30pm. Works demonstrations will take place on 5 and 6 November at 7pm and 8:30pm. Participants must take part in all workshop sessions and performances.
Please bring the following
- • black clothes, modest and somewhat elegant, rather than clothes for theatre training or gymnastics (no lettering and graphics; skirts or long dresses are acceptable for women, but short skirts are discouraged – the ideal length is just below the knee or just above the ankle; no low-necks and short sleeves – long sleeves are ideal, elbow-length sleeves are acceptable
- • black shoes rather than running shoes
- • 5 walnuts
- • a completely white sheet
- • a torchlight
