info and registration:
Groove Performance Lab is a 9-months training process for performing artists and people with strong interest in artistic expression organized in Berli; a final performance is planned in June - July.
GPL overcomes the labelling of the performative expression that divides theatre from dance, dance from theatre, music from theatre, singing from dance and it is aimed to create an expressive language that belongs to the whole organism.
GPL's work includes physical theater, contemporary theater, imagination - inner visualization, breath awareness, viewpoint training, voice work, text and singing work, techniques of embodiment, composition tools - devise theatre.
We are interested in working with the mythology of the organism, in terms of the all stories, memories, poetic images, colors, ideas and everything that constitute the human being. We want to share this mythology with the colleagues and with the audience.
The work includes also a theoretical part in which the trainees will be invited to read certain books of theatre theories and history, and share their contents with the group.
This artistic path - research is alive and based on true commitment of the trainers and trainees.
It is based on the joy, urgency and surprise of the performative expression.
It is alive and must remain alive in order to be a “live performance” discipline!
It is nourished by love and the desire to glimpse mystery.
It wants to touch borders, hang out and try to deal with them until a natural process brings us to overcome those borders and to discover something new.
It is aimed at creating a real community of people who share a common artistic and human language and understanding.
The lab is articulated in TRAINING sessions: 3h + STUDIO sessions: 5h.
The STUDIO sessions are meant to develop composition skills and to work specifically on scenes, improvisation, device theatre.
Trainings and studio sessions are going to be mainly guided by Daniela Marcozzi. There will be some focused trainings guided by external experts in different performative arts disciplines.
