The formative path aims to provide the student with the awareness of rhythm and musicality in a theatrical action. The acquisition and implementation of rhythm, during the three years of formation, allows the student to develop and deepen the knowledge of their own physicality, transforming the rhythmic impulses (time, space, weight, resonance) to express themselves through movement. The course also allows the student to acquire a solid rhythmic and theoretical basis, as well as to appropriate elements that facilitate the identification and development of the centre of the movement, and to equip himself with an “archive” to draw on instinctively.
|During the first year, once acquired a few elements of music theory, the student is able to “read” a rhythmic score with the body, transforming into movement what is written in notation. This practice allows to improve coordination between mind and body, and to work on the balance and the ability to control one’s weight and limbs as well as to develop one’s listening skills. This first phase is structured with mainly group work and is dependent on the student’s musical experience.
The body is a musical instrument, which can be used to elaborate and produce sounds and rhythms, and which must be able to move with awareness and control. In the second year, students are dedicated to interpreting rhythm through movement and deepening their knowledge of the classic/jazz/popular repertoire as well as developing their ability to compose and improvise. In the third year the student is confronted with the creation of theatrical moments using the means acquired in the first two years of work (thematic block: Creazione Ritmo)
