Training by Francisco Camacho




Organized in three distinct parts, with an intensive rhythm, of about 54 hours each, it's targeted at those who develop or intend to pursue professional activity in the performing arts and aims to focus on the interpretation related aspects. The limited number of attendees suits the purpose of enableling sharp attention to each participant, in order to overcome limits and achieve a singular performativity.

The parts will focus on contexts determined by areas of artistic interest of the trainer. Together, the attendees will reflect upon the common requirements of a creative process. The program contemplates the transmission of the dancer's artistic practices, with focus on issues of domain and expansion on expressive potentialities of movement and gesture, creative response and mechanisms to stimulate the imaginary, and modes of scenic presence. Simultaneously, some work sessions will be guided by invited professionals, whose contributions will be strategic in the development of the knowledge and skills.

In order to enrich the process, it will also contemplate the dissemination of practices and results of the different parts of the project to the public interest and to the artistic community. Following this purpose, an informal public presentation will also be held at training closure.
