The last few periods have been occupied with preparation and experimentation on physical theatre.
We have been looking at ways to create meaningful movements as inspiration from a piece of art.
As you can see below, we chose as our inspiration, Jackson Pollock’s piece.
We first started experimenting with Franctic Assembly’s techniques of in-by-through in pairs. Sam and I ended up creating a fight scene, while at the same time Giulia and Malene were creating harmonious movements. And through this experimentation, we started making connections to the painting and creating a plot.
The greatest difficulty was to resist the temptation to create movements out of a story, but rather create a story out of the movements.
This assignment is quite demanding since it requires time, discipline and cooperation, but at the same time it is an enjoyable process since it is something I am passionate about.
