8 October 2023 to 28 January 2024
The aim of this section of the module POR 1 is to facilitate the student’s artistic autonomy in methodological processes and the consolidation of an artistic identity. Through an organization of their knowledge and skills (creative, sensory and cognitive) the student will be able to develop interpretative operatic roles taking in account previous dramaturgic assumptions for the purpose of live performance.
- Master a variety of techniques of movement and acting.
- Develop somatic and emotional body-mind approaches to performance practice
- Increase awareness of the poetic universe of the performer
- Develop the singular nature of each opera singer during live performance and during collective interaction.
The main purpose of this module is to consolidate the performer skills, giving a particular focus to the work on stage in the interaction with the director and the maestro. Issues of scenic presence in relation with the scene/stage will also be explored. Scenic experimentation through body movement, improvisation, vocality and the arousing of emotion will bring the student a new approach to Opera and Opera making. This module will enable the student to experience a live performance in front of an audience.
