InhalteHow to do research for a documentary project? Where to start? How to do field work? Who to interview? How to organise the material? How to bring an archive to life?

In this workshop, we start from an investigation to write a documentary work based on archival material (found footage, interviews, or any kind of personal research)

During the various steps, the members of the workshop develop a common concept. The group work of research and organization of the material will be the starting point of a scenic exploration of the archive. Through procedures such as playback, audio-visual projection of materials, storytelling and re-enactment, the performers will find performative strategies to make of this archive a living creature.

Lola Arias (Argentina, 1976) is a writer, theatre and film director. She is a multifaceted artist whose work brings together people from different backgrounds (war veterans, former communists, migrant children, etc.) in theatre, film, literature, music and visual art projects. Arias studied Literature at the Universidad de Buenos Aires, and Dramaturgy at the Escuela de Artes Dramáticas (Buenos Aires), the Royal Court Theatre (London) and Casa de América (Madrid). In 2014 she completed the Film Laboratory Programme at the Universidad Di Tella (Buenos Aires).Arias’ productions play with the overlap between reality and fiction. “Sitting in the theatre, wandering a site-specific location or watching a film, we are inculcated into others’ narratives, wound into their complexities, joys and disappointments. At the same time, we are also invited and at times confronted, in an extraordinary and acute way, to reflect on the contingencies and fragilities of our own stories, individual and collective, as well as on our shifting, unresolved relation to the precarious and dangerous machinery that is social and political history.” (Etchells, in Re-enacting Life, 2019).
