Project WALLS separate worlds
babelmed - 06/10/2013
Call for Participation in International Theatre Residency in Zakynthos within the project WALLS_SEPARATE WORLDS with the support of the “Culture Programme 2007-2013” of the European Union Astràgali Teatro (Italy) in collaboration with Theatro Tsi Zakynthos (Greece) are pleased to announce the launch of the second Call for Participation enhanced within the project WALLS-Separate worlds, with the support of the European Union “Culture Programme 2007-2013”.
The Call conceives the participation in an International Theatre Residency that will be held in the Ionian island of Zakynthos (Greece) from 28th November to 4th December 2013.
The International Theatre Residency includes an intensive theatre workshop, conducted by the director Fabio Tolledi and the trainers of Astràgali Teatro. The workshop focuses on: 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 Greece, European Union and other countries.
Dates: 28 November-4 December 2013
Venue: Zakynthos Cultural Centre, Greece
Travels, room and board are at participants’ own expense. The organizers will advise on best-priced accommodation and dining options.
