BE PURE TOOLS – QUARTU S.ELENA – 23 TO 25 NOVEMBER
Part of “Theatre d’Autore”, The Crucible promotes theater workshop “Being INSTRUMENTS pure”, directed by Alessandro Berti.
Being pure means instruments do not push the words to the audience, not anxiously look through the rubble of the mind something to express. On the contrary, be pure instruments means leave pass to himself all things: the air first, then singing, body movement, and finally, and in particular the words. Allow this force in transit radiated all around. A pure instrument is silent: it sounds. It is a more simple and strong. A trunk cable is wound by the wind, a flower is open from the sun. Similarly, the integral body of the actor waiting let everything through it, and in this way you show something new, a new voice takes shape, an unexpected gesture takes place. The work will focus on finding a position (for that to happen), spiritual or physical location on the body and the voice playing and finally on short extracts of some of the great texts that allude, in terms not only aesthetic but also existential, this Our play (and in particular the Book of Job and the diary of Etty Hillesum).
It is proposed to pupils and students to memorize a piece of text (to read the references: teatrodipoesia.blogspot.it/p/workshop-2012-testi-di-riferimento.html) on which we will work in the laboratory .
