CHOREA Theatre Intensive Workshops

27.02-01.03.2015
Art_Inkubator in Art Factory in Lodz

BODY / MOVEMENT / VOICE – THE MULTIDIMENSIONAL ACTOR
Intensive theatre workshops organized by CHOREA Theatre
27,28 February, 1 March 2015

Target group: The workshop is intended for professional actors, dancers, musicians, theatre instructors and for amateurs who are passionate about theatre, dance and music.

The workshop organized by CHOREA is based on intensive acting training. The workshop focuses on waking up the “organicity” of an actor, by working with body, dynamic movement, voice, musicality, rhythm, and on applying all these means of expression simultaneously into a singular, complete artistic act. The workshop will be also inspired by the concept of collective actor, based on intensive work with partner, and multidimensional - polyrhythmic and polyphonic - ways of working with the group.

CHOREA's method of work has two main qualities: intensity and risk - both physical and resulting from the necessity to transcend the limits of one's abilities. CHOREA workshop is moving beyond the presentation of techniques and teaching. The workshop leads to activate the creativity of the group and to create authentic, dynamic artistic event.

The programme of CHOREA workshop includes:

Dance workshop:
-intensive physical workout with elements of acrobatics, martial arts and contemporary dance techniques
-working with partner and space, learning how to support and secure the partners
-working on body awareness, group awareness and concentration
-working on dynamics and expression of movement, and on ability to improvise
-learning choreographies inspired by iconography of ancient myths and iconography of contemporary culture, combined with intensive work with rhythm and musicality

Voice workshop:
-developing natural vocal possibilities, opening the voice by using basic elements of vocal and breathing techniques
-activating body resonators, working on individual timbre and group sound
-working with semi-tones and complex harmonic consonances
-working on polyphonic songs from various folk traditions arranged by CHOREA musicians

Rhythm workshop:
-working with irregular rhythms
-activating the musicality of entire body
-working with the pulse of the group
-working with complex coordination and rhythmic exercises which incorporate simultaneous use of voice and movement

Workshop pricing: 350 PLN
Payment: until 20th February
Participants must cover their own travel, food and lodging expenses.
Coffee, tea, water and snacks will be available on the premises.
Applications: chorea.warsztaty@gmail.com

"Wszędodomni / Panhabitants"

Wszedodomni

Creators: Julia Jakubowska, Dorota Porowska, Paweł Korbus, Magda Laskowska, Piotr Kowalczyk, Marcin Polak, Kuba Krzewiński
Premiere: 23.10.2013, Fabryka Sztuki w Łodzi

The performance "WSZĘDODOMNI / PANHABITANTS" is a result of a project created in 2013, by CHOREA artists and independent artists from Lodz with the residents of a center for homeless people in Lodz.
Artists and animators from CHOREA tried to get inside this difficult social area, and to identify life circumstances of this special community, they also tried to activate and motivate participants of the project. Meetings, discussions and regular theater workshops helped many people to externalize their own judgments, emotions and artistic skills in various art fields.
In terms of this project we organized a musical concert, work-in-progress shows of our joint work, we made a film about our actions and created a democratic performance, a unique theatrical experiment.

 

"Po Ptakach / After The Birds"

Po ptakach fot.D.Sypniewski

Performance created in cooperation of CHOREA Theatre (Poland) and Earthfall (Wales)
Based on text of “The Birds” by Aristophanes

Directors: Jessica Cohen, Jim Ennis, Tomasz Rodowicz
Music: Maciej Rychły
Choreography: Jessica Cohen, Jim Ennis, Suzanne Firth, Cai Tomos, CHOREA
Light: Gerard Tyler, Tomasz Krukowski 
Cast: Dominika Krzyżanowska/Joanna Chmielecka, Malgorzata Lipczynska, Dorota Porowska, Izabela Sliwa, Elina Toneva, Iga Zaleczna, Adam Biedrzycki, Hubert Domanski, Pawel Korbus, Tomasz Krzyzanowski, Maciej Maciaszek, Sean Palmer, Tomasz Rodowicz
Premiere: 09-14. 12. 200,5 Współczesny Theatre (Wrocław), Nowy Praga Theatre (Warsaw)
Performance duration: 60 minutes

Po Ptakach / After the Birds is the second part of the triptych created by CHOREA and Earthfall. It is a result of another international theatrical project which originated in Cardiff (Wales) in December 2005. Using two absolutely different aesthetics and working methods, the two groups jointly created a brand new language on the border of genres and styles. CHOREA and Earthfall confront ancient Greek choral songs with modern music, urban space choreography and fears of the modern world.

We have attempted to answer the question: what is left after Aristophanes’ The Birds, ancient Greeks and their culture, and what do we have in common with them? We must remember that Athens in Aristophanes’ times went through devastating wars with Sparta, collapsing democracy, political crises, plots and power struggles among different political factions. Social and religious values started to crumble. In such circumstances, there always appear some guides to a brave new world which may be created on the ruins of the old one thanks to utopian ideas, populist slogans, manipulations and operating exactly between the ones who succeeded and the ones who lost. Both these groups cannot exist without one another, so, in the areas where their paths cross, the power belonging to the first group and the dreams belonging to the second one must be taken away. Everything must be surrounded by a wall, guards must be employed and strangers must be driven away, as it happened in Cloud Cuckoo Land – the Aristophanes’ ideal new state. But from behind the tall walls, gods look like corrupted idiots, and people look like dwarfs deprived of dreams. Can a paradise on Earth be built only behind barbed-wire fences; do all world healing visions become equally bitter and dangerous when we start putting them into practice? During the play performed in a post-communist state, in the global terrorism era, we pose these questions not only to Aristophanes...
