(Maura Baiocchi in TRANS by Paula Alves)
Coordination: Maura Baiocchi and Wolfgang Pannek
Assistants: Alda Maria Abreu and Ana Beatriz Almeida
In 2015, Taanteatro Company reopens its rural headquarters in São Lourenço da Serra (SP / Brazil) offering a program of creative immersion into the taanteatro dynamics that aim to enhance scenic presence through actions that expand the limits of body & thought and encourage the participant to create a solo-performance.
Among the reflective activities we highlight Thoughts in Performance based on three axes: 1. scenic presence and will to tension, 2. the artaudian body without organs as a choreographic practice, 3. ancestry, self-healing and effectuation in the cyber era.
Dancers, actors, performers, professionals and students from other areas of knowledge interested in intense practices of expansion and effectuation of their expressive potentials.
