The pulsating actor – Alexandra Kazazou – 17-20 / 09/2020
The Multifunctional Art Group – Fabrica Athens collaborates for the second time with the distinguished actress and director Alexandra Kazazou.
New workshop with Alexandra Kazazou at the Fabrica Technopark, for a small number of young actresses and performers, from 17 to 20 September.
By working accurately on the anatomical approach to the boundaries of the body and its sound vessels, any kind of aesthetic language can be stripped. This seminar aims to reunite the physicality of the pulsating performer, the musicality of the body and the physicality of the sound, as it emerges through the energy of the ensemble (Ensemble Energie).
A suggestion will be made:
- In cultivating the awareness of the body parts and its vessels, as well as in its expressive possibilities
- In the strengthening of the respiratory vessels
- In the embodiment of sound-text-song and in the creation of physical actions
- In the composition of the body
- In the rhythmic scores of the body and the voice
- In the harmonization of the horizontal with the vertical axis of the body and the voice
- In the deepening of the coordination technique (Coordination)
This seminar is addressed to actors, dancers, students and graduates of drama schools. It is important that participants wear comfortable clothing.
