Conference Dulcinea's LamentA (VERY SERIOUS) CONFERENCE : PICKING UP PIECES FROM THE CUTTING ROOM FLOOR

Every work of art is the tip of an iceberg. Underneath are many ideas that have been rejected, forgotten or absorbed into the final product. With this conference, Dulcinea Langfelder shares her creative process as well as the result of her research for Dulcinea's Lament into mythology, the evolution of the major religions, the origins of the notion of chivalry, and the Middle Ages as a period of transition between pre-modernity and modernity.

Required: DVD player or compatible computer and microphone, depending on the venue. 


ARTISTIC WORKSHOP : 
Masterclass acting with the whole body

AUTHENTICITY ON STAGE: ACTING WITH THE WHOLE BODY

[For professionals OR non-professionals] Inspired by some of Dulcinea's favourite teachers, such as Étienne Decroux, Yoshi Oida, Min Tanaka, Hideyuki Yano and Pol Pelletier, this workshop is designed to help artists trained in movement to act, and/or to help actors better use their bodies on stage. It is also open to other artists (sculptors, videographers, directors, etc.). Objectives:
• discover the enormous ‘orchestra’ which is the human body, and how the actor can conduct it on stage,
• develop credibility, authenticity and stage presence, no matter how stylized the level of playing,
• control the character in its physical interpretation.

Required: space of minimum 10x10 meters and a DVD player. 

Masterclass artistic and technical

ARTISTIC AND TECHNICAL CO-CREATION WORKSHOP

[For professionals OR non-professionals] Dulcinea's artistic workshop can be combined with a workshop in stage technique led by Vincent Santes (technical director of the company). The aim of these coordinated workshops is to foster a mutual appreciation of the two essential elements to any performance, in a creation space where interpretation and technique dialogue.

Required: equipped stage (basic lights and sounds)
