PROFESSIONAL

The Laboratories are a professional context and participants are chosen on application and selection.

BUT the selection process is both open to all AND professional : what counts above all is open-mindedness and willingness to risk. It is much more a question of personality, quality of listening and expressive risk than of technical know-how - musical, actoral or dance, which are, of course, very welcome.

To apply please contact Enrique, and, if you have not worked with him, include a brief motivation note and CV. Or arrange for a talk with him.


DEFINITIONS

The notion of LABORATORY comes from far, and in particular from Alchemy: the experimentation of the links between matter and imagination. A notion renewed by Jerzy Grotowski in his famous laboratory theater. We are in this lineage - updated by the archetypal thinking of James Hillman.

See a 'classic' example of an Alchemical Laboratory, this one of the "family" type (the whole family at work)   LABORATORIO

For us it is a laboratory of CHOREGRAPHIC THEATRE: syntheses of movement, gesture, dance, on the one hand - and on the other, voice perfor-mance (inclusion of the Roy Hart work), with chorus and music.

It is with the inclusion of the WORK on TEXTS that the experimental nature of the laboratory (and its originality) reaches its strongest poetic and cultural completeness. The text as partner and not as "dictator". (See the 'catalog' TEXTS). This is the most 'advanced' work too, and it must be approached gradually...

All the practical work, laboratories, courses, master classes have a strong theoretical aspect. Alchemy stated that the Laboratory could not be fertile without the ORATORY: conferences, seminars, bibliography of CULTURAL STUDIES, especially in relation to mythology and the notion of magic. Pantheatre is developing a VIRTUAL LIBRARY on the internet.

Importance also of dialogues with contemporary thinkers and performers, including especially French philosopher Xavier Papaïs.

A framework also for TRANSMISSION (artistic and pedagogical) and research, shared with collaborators-artists: dance, clown, music, etc.

It is important to consider montage-performances on the principle of FOLIE A DEUX possibly with presentations (in progress or 'finished') during the Myth and Theatre Festival or at Studio DTM in Paris.

CONDITIONS   &   PRICES

Note from Enrique 25/09/2021: I want to include as many participants as possible who appreciate this work and wish to participate seriously in the laboratory. It is my main creation and research context and I hope to bring together a fully engaged working group. We had it in Paris until 2020 - but COVID dissolved it.

This is why I'm offering, at least to start with, a wide range of prices, from donations to discounts and scheduled payments. Please feel free to contact me to discuss this. EMAIL
