Introduction

Created in Madrid (1996), the school is aimed at people that, having a professional experience and a basic formation, want to go more deeply into a theatre of movement.

A physical theatre where body is always committed to mimics, using voice or acting a text.

Through the analysis of everyday actions and nature dynamics, we will go discovering the laws of life and art, laws that we will be using for dramatic creation in the actor´s game.

MOVEMENTS, VOICE, IMPROVISATION AND CREATION are the four school bases.

Firts year program

We will begin observing the normal life. We will find calm and balance with the neutral mask. We will get close to nature through the caring body to enrich ourselves of rhythm and kind of forms. Elements, material and animals will be our reference points. 

We will go through the way getting near poetry and picture. We will find the movement in everything that contains a body and we will build a body in things that don´t have one. We will get through objects and mask theatre in order to arrive to characters. 

We will be building characters through movement. We will take out passions, moods. All these goes with a vocal technical work and play where we will go exploring all the sound possibilities we have, looking for our voice limits, acute and deep, and boosting our natural resonators using them in speaking and singing voice.

We will also develop a musical work with instruments without having any previous musical knowledge.


Second year program

We will come into theatrical creation. We will have different theatrical styles as a reference, we will find out their rules to be able to develop a personal style.

We will begin with silence through the mimic language to follow with melodrama, comedy with masks and without them, jokers, and tragedy until arrive to clown.

We will support in dramatic texts already written and we will develop our own text creations. Our target is to offer a lot of possibilities in which everyone could find his own way.

During the second year, the pupil must have some availability in order to perform some quarterly small plays open to public.
