The pedagogic work is at the core of Manifesto Poetico research. We considered it a Pedagogy of Risk, Exploration, Enlightenment, Collaboration and Craft. Manifesto Poetico's original research and pedagogy has its roots in the School of Jacques Lecoq and his Pedagogy of Movement and at the Laboratory of Movement Study - L.E.M. where Carlos is an associate artist and a professor.
Manifesto Poetico workshops offer an insight into the Laboratory’s working/research processes. Manifesto workshops, special commission workshops, lecture demonstrations and research residencies take place all over the world with artists from different disciplines, interests, abilities and backgrounds, from professionals and students, to young people within and without the theatre community.
MANIFESTO WORKSHOPS: when the Laboratory is interested in a subject, Manifesto Poetico proposes an open workshop to which individuals can apply.
SPECIAL COMMISSION WORKSHOPS: when people or groups want the laboratory to work with their group on a particular subject, Manifesto Poetico will make a custom tailored workshop based on the groups interests and needs.
RESEARCH RESIDENCY: Manifesto Poetico opens its research on a residency basis and invites artists from different disciplines to share a time of reflection, research and immersion into the Laboratory's insights and content. Participation is under invitation. For more information contact us
