12th until 16th of April (Presentation: 17th. April 2004)
The concept of montage does not only imply a composition of words, images, or relationships, above all, it implies the montage of rhythm, but not in order to represent or reproduce the movement. By means of the montage of rhythm, in fact, one aims at the very principle of motion, at tensions, at the dialectic process of nature or thought. Or better, at the thought, which penetrates matter, meaning ‘energy’.
The concept of energy is a concept both obvious and difficult. We associate it with external impetus, with an excess of muscular and nervous activity. However, it also refers to something intimate, something that pulses in immobility and silence, a retained power that flows in time without dispersing in space.
This workshop will focus on a series of actions at work, drawn from individual improvisations.
These actions will then be isolated and set on a sequence or series of sequences, by the use of montage. The workshop intends to reveal and give to the participants, the resources and the means with which to approach and further develop their own dramaturgy, meaning to go from movement to physical action.
