Finding Your Identity
Instructor: Gonzalo Rodolico from Buenos Aires/Argentina
The workshop will be taught in Spanish with English Translation
Duration: 12 hours
As improvisers we fulfill three roles simultaneously: We are the author, the director and the performer of our scenes. It's a lot to handle all at once and it can be difficult to give each role the credit it deserves. The role of the director in particular often gets neglected. We focus on what to do next but not on how to do it. We move forward but we do it in a generic way. We become simple executors of ideas entering into a repeated dynamic. We lack identity.
This workshop is all about discovering your unique way of transforming an idea into a scenic move. We will focus on your ability to direct while you act in order to add important interpretive skills to your narrative skills. The same idea delivered by two separate minds should look very different. Each scene you play should have your individual finger print on it. This workshop provides you with the tools to find meaning and purpose and your identity as an artist.
