5/07 - 9/07
The neutral mask develops the presence of an actor in the space that surrounds him. It allows to get rid of physical tensions and develop corporal plasticity. The mask puts an actor into the state of discovery, openness, availability to receive. It allows to see, to listen, to feel, to touch fundamental things with a freshness of the first time.
We will work on the basic concepts of body movement (economy, articulation, accentuation, breathing, rhythm, projection) and fundamental acting skills (stage presence, urgency, receptiveness, action – reaction, movement of the body in space and a dramatic image).
