Course description

This course will be taught in person. If ultimately it is not possible to hold the course at the Sala Beckett, it will be cancelled.

Workshop aimed at actresses and actors interested in training, research and perfecting of a scenic truth in text-based theatre.

Through scenes from contemporary plays, we will be pursuing how to find this investigation of scenic (not reality) truth with a minimum of game rules.

The acting utopia as the goal: how to give continuity to the scenic truth of the actor in performance number 100. Or at the very least, a subjective analysis of what is shown, with no holds barred.

Within the GREC 2021 Festival of Barcelona.
