The project WALLS-Separate worlds, promoted by Astràgali Teatro (Italy), with the support of the European Union “Culture Programme 2007-2013”, launches a Call for Participation in an international theatre residency that will be held in Șirince (Turkey) at the beautiful venue of Theatre Madrasa from 23rd to 30th September 2013.

The International Theatre Residency includes an intensive theatre workshop, held by Astràgali Teatro and Theatre Madrasa-PRA (Turkey). Core of the workshop is: an intercultural and multidisciplinary approach based on intensive physical training (awareness of body in acting, fundamentals on movement, awareness of space) and on vocal work (breath, relation between movement and voice, fundamentals on singing) as well as on the elaboration of art techniques, considered as a critical instrument against discrimination and conflict.

The main issue of the work concerns the question of walls, as concrete tokens of separate worlds in situations of conflict and of lack of mutual recognition.

The workshop includes an intensive work schedule (8/10 hours a day).

It targets a group of max 25 young professional actors and actresses from Turkey, European Union and other countries.

 

Dates: 23 September-30 September 2013

Location: Theatre Madrasa- Șirince-Turkey
