This workshop aims at being a summer educational context focused on empirical learning, that is, on the practice of “doing”. During the first years of improv class, it is important to make experiences, know new people, know yourself. The teacher will give you some usefull contents and tools to strenghten everything you learnt so far, practice it with other improvisers coming from a different educational path, and acquire new theatrical tools, as if they were new toys, ready to be displayed on a stage. Installations – Solo and choral scenes – The body – The vicissitude – first person narration – Timing – Free style = your own style – Playing with strangers. Omar Galván, during his non-stop Improtour, has developed his own internationally recognizable poetics: magical realism, elegant transitions, poetic body, multi-level reality, these are only some of his personal footprint that will be the basis of this workshop. “I bought a book on juggling. I read it more than once, I studied it. I still don’t know how to juggle.” Keith Johnstone. During the workshop, a non-format will be created to make a final performance, open to the public.
