the Method of Theodoros Terzopoulos
“The process of rehearsal in Attis Theatre is not the performance of a dramatic concept; it is an adventure on a journey to the landscape of memory, a search for the lost keys of unity between body and speech, the word as a natural unity”.
Heiner Müller, Berlin, 1987
The workshop is an introduction to the renowned and influential method of Theordoros Terzopoulos that is being taught in International Drama Academies, Drama Schools and Universities and has inspired actors all over the world. Terzopoulos’ Method focuses on the emancipation of the trapped energy and voice and aims to reconstitute the lost unity between the word and the body. This training paradigm through a sequence of dynamic physical and vocal exercises is created to cultivate the fundamental principles of the performer’s craft: diaphragmatic breath control, in-body concentration, strengthening and activation of the corporal axles in connection to the body center, liberation of the sound sources and resonators of the body.
The participants will investigate the elements of the training to a rhythmic interpretation of a text (ancient Greek tragedy and classic texts).
