  • Atelier Francophone

  • Jun 6, 2011 at 4:15pm to Jul 25, 2011 at 6:00pm
  • Location: Pearl studios, 519 8th Avenue
  • Description:

    L'atelier Francophone est un cours de théâtre en français basé sur des exercices d'imagination qui sollicitent le corps et la voix pour arriver à un jeu créatif et "réel".

    Le cours intègre des méthodes diverses d'apprentissage du jeu (Meisner, Stanislavski, Chekhov, etc) pour que l'acteur puisse découvrir les outils qui marchent le mieux pour lui.

    L'accent est mis sur le travail en groupe. L'intérêt est de créer une troupe d'acteurs construite sur cet art qu'est le travail en commun, composée d'individus qui apprécient et essaient de nourrir autant le travail de la compagnie entière que de leur propres personnes.

    Nous travaillons aussi sur des scènes diverses écrites par des auteurs contemporains francophones.
