ENTRE DOS: ESPACIO EFIMERO PARA 'UN' ENCUENTRO Y LA MEMORIA

Is a two day workshop in which its participants will explore the ephemeral uniqueness of (on stage) encounters. Primarily through body expressions and within the field of contemporary performance, we will marginalize a space for fertile chaos and investigate in its liminal zone, different embodiments of memory. The three day exploration will end with a presentation of performance work on behalf of the attendees.

Theoretical and practical background of this workshop is derived from studies in performance, acting, and cognitive science; particularly the ideas of de Tavira, Mendoza, Schechner, Laban, Turner, Meisner, Varela and Rosch.

Please note that this is a two day consecutive workshop, so participants should attend both sessions.
