walls paris 200Astràgali Teatro (Italy), in collaboration with Maison d’Europe et d’Orient and in partnership with ITI Secretariat General-Paris and Un Vrai Beau Gars (France), is pleased to announce the launch of the Call for Participation in an International Theatre Workshop in Paris, within the project WALLS-Separate worlds,supported by the European Union “Culture Programme 2007-2013”.

An International Theatre Workshop will be held in Paris at the Maison d’Europe et d’Orient from 4th to 6th March 2014.

The International Theatre Workshop will be conducted by Fabio Tolledi and Astràgali Teatro’s experts.

It will explore theatre techniques related to physical training (awareness of body in acting, fundamentals on movement, awareness of space) and especially to vocal training (breath, relation between movement and voice, voice in relation to a text, singing). The workshop in Paris will focus on vocal exploration in relation with the physical movement, and will also use songs from traditional repertoires. The epic poem Metamorphoses by Ovid will be the text of reference for the workshop.

The main issue of the work concerns the question of walls, as concrete symbols of separate worlds in situations of conflict and of lack of mutual recognition. Within the project theatre is considered as a critical instrument against discrimination and conflict.

The workshop will have the following work schedule: from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm.

It targets a group of max 20 young professional actors and actresses from France, the European Union and other countries.

Dates: 4 -6 March 2014

Venue: Maison d’Europe et d’Orient, 3 Passage Hennel, 75012 Paris (France)  

The participation in the workshop is free.

Travel, room and board are at the participants’ own expense. The project cannot cover such costs.

On 16th September 2001, Edward Said was already writing what sounds like a call to reason in his article: “Islam and the West are not the right flags”. This title perfectly sums up Babelmed’s editorial approach since its creation: to fly no flags.
