The Damn Vanity Theater



Creation at Crossroads of Thoughts 2021



This is an experimentation laboratory for actors that will fulfill all the phases of creating a show, including a three-role season in the programming of La Casa de La Maldita Vanidad

The Laboratory seeks to develop artistic and creative qualities through play and the discovery of the capacities of the body-voice, from the appropriation of basic concepts applied to the dramatic text, incorporating basic tools that allow confronting the theater as a total art; the approach to the work of creating roles, the introduction to the active analysis of texts and the different narrative elements of a staging, from the work with the stage space, the sound space and the lighting.



The three facilitators will contribute their own exercises from the stage work focused on; the creation of a group dynamic, the compression of the scene, the dramatic situation, the discovery and application of concepts for the development of a character. Dynamics and exercises based on the postulates of Michael Chejov in his book "Al Actor" and of Declan Donellan in his book "The Actor and Diana" will be applied. All this focused on the staging of a show that will have three seasonal performances at La Casa de La Maldita Vanidad Teatro. Each of the participants is understood as a creator who contributes his vision and creative concerns in the creation of the show.
