This is because it contains so many elements from the environment.  These are things such as taste, smell, sound, real space, time, humans, history, religions, and governments."

The Laboratory program was designed for professional performing artists inspired by the teachings of Stanislavsky, Meyerhold and M. Chekhov, interested to establish deeper understanding of their approach and to integrate their ideas into contemporary practical work - rehearsal process, performance and teaching. It focuses on the practical and playable aspects of theatre training, particularly in terms of exercises .  

 



News about Performance Art in , Caracas, Venezuela. Performance project developing until March at wonderful speed here at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Caracas. Not a Workshop but a personal piece.  Workshops didn´t do too well this past year (yet the 2 "video-forums" did!), but, as teaching is my goal, hopefully things will come across soon enough. It´s fixed on my mind (teaching) and I´m still working hard on it.! (hopefully, this "show" will be a good grounding for the workshop project)
