LECTURES CUM DEMONSTRATION
 

Year: 1985 / Director: Renzo Vescovi

A lecture cum demonstration on the art of acting between East and West


Contemporary scenic culture defined a new epistemological category: theatrical Anthropology.
Born on the Grotowskian current of the “body” as a primary  tool of theatrical expression, it subsequently developed feeding essentially on Eugenio Barba’s artistic work and on the methodological observations developed by ISTA (International School of Theatre Anthropology). Its main feature, on the background of the European and Italian history and theatrical practice, essentially consists of privileging the “executional” side of the show (with particular focus on the art of acting) as opposed to the importance given to the verbal and textual side.


TTB’s theatrical work proposal consists in approaching this new category and cultural sensibility. It’s about investigating the historical passage from the play intended as a mainly vocal "translation" of a "theatrical" text to its nature of organized composition of actorial "energy", to concentrating more explicit sensorial stimula in which resides the feature of the most conscious contemporary theatre. 


In this reference framework “Fuochi d’Artificio” (Fireworks) is an open structure work that (as the title suggests) shows the bipolarity that characterizes the artistic fact and especially the theatrical one. On one side the primary energy and the instinctive strength, on the other the technical measure that controls and shapes them: what, as a matter of fact, is etymologically expressed in the word “art”. 


The performance is composed of a series of varied theatrical pieces connected by visual material and by a series of introductions and explanatory comments.
