On Saturdays, 22 & 29 October 2011
5th floor - Young Theatre Workshop
30 € for the cycle (participants must attend both sessions)
A theatre workshop consisting of two sessions centred on the OPERA theatre company’s production of The Merchants of Nations, which is based on the novel of the same name by Alexander Papadiamantis. The workshop seeks to introduce the participants to Papadiamantis’ idiom and themes through theatrical improvisations and games. The OPERA theatre company’s actors will give the young people a behind-the-scenes look at the workings of the production and guide them in their exploration of the play, helping them first to identify scenes which are directly relevant to their own lives and then to develop them with the means at their disposal. In this way, themes like power, faith, religion, passion and transcendence will be related to the young people’s everyday lives prior to forming the basis for short scenes—some taken from the play itself—played out on stage in contexts proposed for their relevance to the present day.
creditsThe workshop will be led by the members of the OPERA Theatre Company.
