Lernziele / KompetenzenThe course is primarily intended for students enrolled in the MA in Physical Theatre at the Accademia Teatro Dimitri. Rather than a printed drama, the starting point of this historical and theoretical introduction to theatrical forms will be the actor’s body on stage.
InhalteWe will investigate the artistic aims of the 20th century reformers who opposed institutionalised theatre – most famously epitomised by Antonin Artaud’s call for “No more masterpieces!”, in opposition to “fixed” dramatic texts that belong to the realm of literature rather than to theatre. The contemporary aesthetics of Physical or Devised Theatre are indebted to the historical attempts of stage artists to constitute the theatre as an independent art form, not an animated library. It should be noted that the word “drama” is derived from a Greek verb simply meaning “to do/act”. In this sense, the aim of the course is to train our ability to think theatrically. The theory will observe the practice: The students will be asked to present their master projects in the seminar, offering their ideas, influences, artistic aims for debate in the group. Can we find a common aesthetic in the different projects? A theatre of creative actors, “cre/-attori”?
