Seminar of Odig Teatrit in Athens – 30 / 06 to 03/07
The Multi-activel Art Group Fabrica Athens organizes a four-day, intensive seminar of the Odin Teatret in Athens, with Master Donald Kitt. During the seminar, Fanis Katechos, co-founder of Fabrica Athens and presenter of the “Theater of Research – Theater of Research” will collaborate with the Canadian Master – Performer.
Odin Teatret’s seminar “Sticks and Stones – a process in Search of Hidden Meanings” focuses on several aspects:
- the physical education of the actor – performer
- the evolution of actions inspired by the use of an object
- voice exploration: discovery of personal rhythm, spatial perception – consciousness and dynamism.
The work of the actors – performers in the seminar evolves from the creation of a personal material with the collaborative use of poles and is completed with an editing. Throughout the development of this material, the participating artists will combine it with texts, songs and the use of space. The seminar aims to encourage a personal process that unlocks hidden meanings.
The Odin Teatret seminar that will take place in Athens is addressed to actors, performers, but also to theorists who wish to be listeners of the seminar.
Participants must attend all 4 days of the seminar. Be consistent in its start and end time. In addition, they need to know a text and a song from the outside, as well as a phrase from an expression or a children’s song. Finally, for their participation they will need to wear comfortable, sportswear.
