Stage composition workshop with Argyro Chioti
Using materials from music pluralism and traditional dances of the Mediterranean, we will focus on the composition of the presence of the performer on stage. A presence that combines different and perhaps conflicting elements of the performer’s identity such as the voice, the movement, the speech, the use of space and the relationship with the others. But always allowing the performer to maintain his/her special characteristics while working with others.
The workshop is open to anyone and leads to a sharing in the end.
