This workshop aims at working the awareness and spontaneity on stage.
This is a course that works the principles of Improv with expressive theatrical techniques. The methodology that Luana Proença applies aims at the units of space and time. It proposes a differential approach by combining "traditional" Impro techniques, that are taught and widespread around the world, with Viewpoints (developed by the directors Anne Bogart and Tina Landau from USA), and Physical Theater, Commedia Dell'Arte and Clown to understand the physical space: external and/or internal to our bodies to act, be in action.

Improvisation principles, instant scenic creation, character creation, presence, scene game and gibberish.
