The workshop, which has already been presented in 5 countries, is a result from Rodrigo Fischer’s doctorate research at University of Brasilia and City University of New York in 2013. The investigation was a discussion about concepts, procedures and cinematic aesthetic works regarding in particular its contribution to the actor’s performance in the theatrical context. It’s a proposal to identify the encounter between a theatrical performance with a cinematographic acting through the instant and its performativity.
When the actor’s performance and his composition reside within the instant, his expression, gesture, presence, and affection are devised with their all potentiality and materiality, and without elucidating their possible representations. Through a Meisner Technique and Theatre of the Oppressed updated within the context of Performative Theater, the workshop works important technical features for the actor in this theater-cinema boundary. It is developed skills such as listen, impulse’s recognition and finally the organic reaction on the present. From practical exercises, laboratories and improvisations, the workshop will develop skills such as listen, impulse’s recognition and finally the organic reaction on the present.
