The laboratory is a real gym in which to train the muscles of the actor, with particular attention to the body, voice, presence in space, imagination, relationship with the partner and analysis of the script.
During the course the students approach the numerous tools of the art of acting, whether on stage or on set, they experiment, study them and begin to get an idea of how vast the field of study of an actor is, which comes to understand the most varied disciplines, which comes to potentially embrace the whole human being.
The cycle of lessons is placed in the initial phase of the training course, an extremely delicate moment of learning, where it is necessary to broaden the horizons on this magnificent art and allow the individual student to become curious and go in directions hitherto unknown.
Stanislavskij and Ivana Chubbuck are the reference points of the course, consequently the approach is theatrical. The activities in the classroom are very practical: during the first part the focus is on the body, posture and breathing; the teacher uses the neutral mask training.
In the second part the students study their relationship with the space and with the partner. The focus is on the activation of energy impulses, through exercises on trust and on the relationship with the other.
Subsequently, the concepts of improvisation and action / reaction and analysis of the scene are introduced. This takes place in detail and in a maieutic way with the students, in order to make them independent for future analyzes.
The course is intense and practical, students are encouraged to directly experience what it means to be on stage, they are encouraged to overcome their limits and, most importantly, they are stimulated to ask themselves the right questions about the script. The approach is exquisitely theatrical, this being the training of the teacher, but it is enriched with important forays from television and cinema, so as to offer students the opportunity to compare these languages and modulate the acting techniques according to the needs of the medium. .
As many instruments as possible on the various recitative methods are made available to the students, so that everyone can have the widest possible panorama and consequently deepen what seems most useful from time to time.
The goal is to indicate the path to be undertaken in a personalized way for each student and to underline the meticulous attention to be paid to the various aspects of the art of acting. For this reason, the teacher selects scenes from well-known films: thanks to the result visible on the screen, one can guess the journey to be undertaken and each student can immediately recognize the aspects in which he feels more knowledgeable and those that will require a more in-depth study.
