About the laboratory
The pedagogic work is at the core of Manifesto Poetico research. We considered it a Pedagogy of RISK, EXPLORATION, ENLIGHTENMENT, COLLABORATION and CRAFT.
Over the last two decades and much travel Carlos has developed and refined an international pedagogy based in movement research and cultural study.
Carlos’ research and pedagogy incorporates different artistic disciplines (music, architecture, painting, dance…) and science (anthropology, philosophy, physics, geometry…) with the everlasting goal of developing and exploring new theatrical languages, influenced by the study of human movement, its' society and especially the essence and abstraction of "the mask".
The pedagogic work of Manifesto Poetico engages committed artists and students in rediscovering ways to:
. Serve the contemporary actor,
. Compose and frame the dramatic space,
. Articulate the emotional journey of the characters for an audience of today,
. Make a set that appears only in the imagination of the audience.
Carlos has taught in more that 20 different countries, over 40 American Universities, and in notable places such as Hollywood (AADA), Dutch National Opera Academy, Teatro de La Abadia in Madrid, Brown University, Wagner College and Sarah Lawrence in New York, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS), East 15 in London, Toronto University, Teatro Nacional in Bogota, In Teatro in Buenos Aires, among others.
Since 2011 he is an associate artist and a regular teacher at the L.E.M. (Laboratory of Movement Study) at the School of Jacques Lecoq in Paris.
Every workshop has a different theme but has in common the dramatic impact of the body on the space through everyday stories.
