Actor’s Training: Energy and Precision

Workshop led by Maša Jelić, PLAVO Theatre actress

September 18 – 24, 2022

Workshop consists of introduction to different aspects of the actor’s training of mind, body and voice, through specific approach, based on the principles established by Jerzy Grotowski and actors of his Laboratory Theatre, which has been practiced in Plavo Theatre for more than 25 years.

Maša bioParticipants will learn how to train their mind, body and voice to articulate their inner, emotional content, by reflecting impulses directly and organically, without premeditation. Actor’s training helps us to get out of the trap of clichés and masks, caused by prejudice, fear and too much rationality in creative process. It allows our expression to become more authentic and truthful, by revealing our irrational, playful and energetic capacities, through precision of vocal and physical actions. Training will also include work on partners’ relation, improvisation, text and singing.

We welcome you to research your expressive capacities within our theatrical laboratory!

The work will be held every day from September 18-24, from 10:00 – 13:00.

Participants should have a notebook, wear comfortable working clothes and should know by heart:

  • Short text (about 5 – 6 sentences long) – any text or a poem, in their mother tongue or in English;
  • A traditional song from their country.
