simple objets, but also puppets and masks, in collaboration with Anne Lacoste.
Description and principles of the 'Academy
are asked to choose and bring a text of some 300 words or more, learnt by heart.
The choice of text and genre is free (it does not have to be a theatre monologue,
nor refer to mythology, not to the theme of Virgins), but
very important: learn it by heart - you will have your hands full while on the
floor, so it is essential to be free of memory struggles. Avoid texts which are
too poetically condensed or linguistically complex - please, dear Anglo friends,
try to refrain from Shakespeare, (unless you really cannot help it, in which case
we will thoroughly enjoy it...), and consider contemporary texts.
use very simple objects to start with: large materials, sticks, cardboard. Participants
who wish can bring their own working objects, and also consult Enrique Pardo on
leading up to the workshop
and June, Anne Lacoste will direct a mask, puppets and "object" construction
atelier. The idea is to create objects as it were "on the go". Anne
Lacoste will propose simple construction procedures, using cheap materials and
junk, as well as clay, plaster, plaster bandages, wood glue, aluminum paper....
55€ for 3 sessions of three hours, including basic working material, in groups
of three persons wishing to share the same construction procedures (especially
in a first phase: face masks or modeling.)
at 26 rue des Francs-Bourgeois in the Marais area (Métro : Saint-Paul).
Two working rooms of 40 and 30 m2, equiped for : carpentry, clay sculpture, sowing
Lots of odd materials to use. For the masks, the simplest procedure would be papier
mâché from a paster mould.
join this atelier, please contact Anne Lacoste via firstname.lastname@example.org
