L'improvvisazione teatrale

BY DAVIDE L'OMINO
@ VOL 1 ON AUG 01, 2014

L'improvvisazione teatrale (qui presentata da un esponente dell'accademia bresciana di improvvisazione teatrale) insegna le tecniche necessarie per recitare senza un copione ed una scenografia; improvvisare aiuta a capire quanto sia utile ed importante, nel teatro ma non solo, ascoltare gli altri, aiuta a conoscere, a farsi conoscere e a riconoscersi. Alla base di ogni improvvisazione c'è inoltre la risata e il divertimento che fanno di questa disciplina una tecnica del buon umore!

Il 4 è rosso!

BY IL 4 È ROSSO
@ VOL 3 ON FEB 20, 2015

 

Il 4 è rosso” is an association founded in 2012 to support education projects through the theatrical experience, with particular care about social inclusion. The group is made up of four actresses and promotes drama workshops for children (aged 4 to 12) and for families. These activities differ from the traditional patterns of theatre, linked to roles and characters, and are person-centered: everyone can be the leader of his/her story and can feel free to be himself/herself through the medium of theatre, in its aspects of discipline and fun.
