Workshop Price 90€
This workshop invites participants to explore their own artistic “manifesto” and to reflect on the challenges creators/performers/artists face at the beginning of the 21st century.
It is intended for any person with an interest in artistic practices (theater, performance, film, dance, writing, painting, photography, etc…)
The work will revolve around a set of basic questions.
– What are your artistic visions and how can you turn them into performative material?
– How can we develop artistic autonomy and create a sustainable artistic practice?
– What can we learn from ‘do it yourself’ cultures?
– What does “being creative” mean nowadays?
At the beginning of the 20th century, the avant-garde movement, imbued with the spirit of the new age, fascinated by the technological innovations and the social and political revolutions of the time, decided to break with the academic legacy and canon that existed since the Renaissance and started to investigate and explore new paths in terms of aesthetics and critical discourses. And the way to share their findings and experimental creative processes was through the use of manifestos.
In addition to exploring some of the most significant manifestoes in the world of performance, participants are invited to write their own manifesto and investigate its scenic possibilities. We will explore the notion of “embodiment” as a key element in the process of developing original work. All participants are invited to make links between movement and emotion, life and art, the physical body and the poetic body. Moreover, we will work on basic aspects of composition and “montage”
The sessions will be a mix of discussion work, some movement exercises and individual work, conducted via online video meetings.
During each session, there will be some time dedicated to see individual work for those who wish to share.
As an integral part of the workshop, each participant will have an optional personal feedback session (if interested) and the possibility of a follow up meeting after the completion of the workshop. In addition, all participants will receive reading material and bibliographical references in order to complement the artistic praxis.
