Acting between theatre and film: the performativity of the instant
Through the Meisner Technique of acting and its update within the context of Performative Theater, the workshop works important technical features for the actor in this theater-cinema border. Skills such as listen, impulse’s recognition and finally the organic reaction on the present. From practical exercises and improvisations, the workshop will introduce the concept of opaque actor: potential of silence, mystery, microperceptions, ambiguity and presence. This concept intends to allow the actor indentify his way to perform on stage and also mediated by a camera. The filmmaker John Cassavetes is the big inspiration for this search.
