Workshop

The Dilated Body: Training for Actors

MonoFest’22

5. Uluslararası Tek Kişilik Oyunlar Festivali  (23-28 August 2022)

In a performance situation, the actor’s physical presence is modeled on different foundations from those applied to everyday life. THE DILATED BODY: TRAINING FOR ACTORS workshop explores different principles that regulate the scenic body found in different theatrical traditions, Western and Eastern, in a pragmatic way, so that the actor can practice them daily and apply them to their work, regardless of the different aesthetic approaches in which it is inserted.
