Devised / Collaborative theatre has a place in modern art today. Usually it is an improvisatory theatre wherein the story does not come from a script but rather from a collaborative group of artists.
This is a very similar type of theatre as Commedia dell’Arte, the main difference being Devised Theatre’s end result is presented to an audience in a fixed form. The improvisation is confined to the creative process.
Manifesto Poetico proposes a workshop on Devised Theatre.
The workshop will research different stimuli in order to approach the creative process of making theatre.
Those stimuli would be:
.The empty space.
.Cinematographic language on stage.
(framing, montage and editing – with no use of technology)
.Scene composition by: Rhythm’s principle and the Laws of compensation.
.Dynamics of the body on the space.
The workshop will be directed by Carlos García Estévez.
