The Summer Physical Theatre Intensive at the Accademia dell’Arte offers artists opportunities to spend two weeks or one month inside a conservatory training program. The focus of the summer courses is on self-generated work and devising from various perspectives. The course offerings vary every summer and give artists tools from diverse fields of physical theatre in order to explore different approaches to storytelling and devised performance. In the spirit of inter-pedagogical exchange, participants will also have the chance to engage in discussions with master teachers from both the dance and physical theatre tracks regarding their philosophies on art making and choreography.
Participants can choose one of the two courses that will run concurrently over a two-week period:
WEEK ONE & TWO:
- Commedia dell’Arte
- The Devising Grid: Generating performance from time, body and voice
WEEK THREE & FOUR:
- Cirque Clown Performance
- Body Memory
