Therapeutic Theater on Mondays

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart” –  Helen Keller

HEAL YOURSELF via THEATER!

This course will be developed in monthly modules. Each module consists of 3 weeks, with 1.5
hour classes each week. Each module will work with theater tools in a therapeutic way, inviting participants to put their emotions into play, to learn how to deal with them from a different perspective. This course will use mindfulness tools, active meditation, improvisation exercises, biodanza, mimesis, among others.

In this course by our enlightening teacher Marcela Variani, we will have the opportunity to get to know ourselves through interaction with others, transforming the classroom space into a rehearsal and laboratory for unexpected life situations. Through theatrical exercises, we can become aware of the relationship between time, space and presence. So, the main question is: how to put yourself at the center of the stage, which is ”life”? How to find the courage to act in front of what we don’t know yet?

OBJECTIVES:

  1. Acquire broader understandings of the theatrical world coupled with a therapeutic
    sense
  2. Develop spontaneity and gain creativity and disinhibition.
  3. Activate the individual’s ability to truly and sincerely live imaginary situations and learn
    from them.

    expression in the areas: corporal, emotional, cognitive and relational

What is the difference between Acting & Improv theatre?

 We believe it’s important to know what are the main differences between Acting and Improv Theater:
1. Acting teaches you how to express yourself honestly and confidently in many different situations and roles. Improv teaches you how to be yourself and tap into spontaneity.

2. Improv helps you to connect with others, while Acting helps you connect with your emotions and thoughts in the way you express yourself physically.

Both Acting and Improv can boost your confidence, improve your listening and communication skills and level up your ability to actively and openly communicate with the world around you.
