The two workshops are part of Magfest International Residency organised from 29 July to 2 August 2014 in the Maiella National Park.
“Presence space performance” with Jill Greenhalgh The workshop is composed of two modules: in the first module Jill Greenhalgh will alternate theory and practice to investigate the scenic presence in relation to space and to the process of artistic creation; the second module will be focused on the creative process itself and the participants will present and develop their materials or works in progress (this module is open to a maximum of 5 projects of single artists or groups).
“Kallistòs” with Sista Bramini and Camilla dell'Agnola The workshop is open to women working in theatre or to anyone interested in researching theatre elements and their relationship to nature. The work focuses on theatre as a tool and on the vital precision of its elements in specific relation to the natural space. We will investigate how this relationship to nature can open to forms of feeling and expression different from the ones at play in indoor performing spaces. This experience touches deep layers of the creative process and develops latent expressive potentials. It allows us to embrace our vulnerability while opening to the poetic integration of the unexpected and coming in contact with our 'memory body', in a state of receptive attention to the space and the performance partners. Through this process, even the indoor theatre experience will become more articulated and captivating.
