Four of Aluna's international guest artists are offering master classes while visiting Toronto to present their work at RUTAS 2016, Daniels Spectrum, Toronto.
Playwright workshop with Carlos Satizábal of Colombia
Saturday 1 & Sunday October 2, 1:30 p.m.- 6:30 p.m.
Explore dramaturgical approaches to creating alternative, socially motivated theatre. We begin by making a list of spaces and the emotional moments that we have lived in those spaces. Each participant will then write small scenes based on those emotional spaces. Next, the participants will create a dramaturgical structure for these scenes and assemble them into a short play. Primary Language: Spanish.
Rhythm Writings with Jackeline Rago
Monday October 3 & Tuesday October 4, 2pm – 5pm
A two-day intensive in which participants will explore polyrhythmic body percussion and interdisciplinary collective creation. This class is geared towards artists working in the disciplines of theatre, dance, spoken word, visual art and/or music, who are interested in hybrid, collective creation processes. The class will take participants on a creative journey incorporating games, dances and folk songs from several Latin American and Caribbean countries.
Building the Scene with Teatro de los Andes
Saturday October 8, Sunday October 9 & Monday October 10, 10am – 2pm
The creation of images on stage and improvisation are the basis for Theatre of the Andes’ collective creation approach. The goal is to create poetic metaphors that are close to our hearts and that synthesize a moving and haunting singular vision of a particular theme. The exercises in this class will give the actor the ability to develop a stage presence, concentration, the use of theatrical space; and to experiment with improvisation. In Spanish, with live translation.
Writing with the Body with Cristina Castrillo
Saturday October 8, Sunday October 9 & Monday October 10, 2.30 – 6.30pm
This class focuses on creating a physical language inspired by our personal lived experiences and transforming them into poetic theatrical images that allow us to write with or without the use of words. The fundamental element of Castrillo’s theatrical work is memory; not only with a reference to what one remembers or thinks one remembers, but rather as that often imperceptible network of cues through which an emotion or a reaction directs movement. In Spanish, with translation.
