IMBUA is a group of 4 workshops with a focus on the artistic exploration with Suzuki Method, Viewpoints, Theatre Anthropology and Contemporary Circus, which are the main disciplines explored in our company. Framed as a sharing between artists, it aims to offer some tools of exploration and a moment of intense research and focus to artists of all performing arts: theatre, dance, circus and performance.
The 4 workshops take place in October and November, with 14 hours each (in a total of 56 hours), where each artist of the company will share his/her own tools with all participants. The exchange will intensify in the last workshop, conceived as a moment of experimentation and crossing of languages, where a final presentation will take place.
The common frame of all these workshops is a “focus as psychic energy” training – transformative as well as performative – and the ground of all movement. We all search the tuning of scenic movement as feedback, through every method and technique. The three – Juan, Pepa and Pupo – like to challenge the body to escape the quotidian, reorganizing freedom and scenic awareness.
The final goal is to challenge these languages to enter in dialogue and to serve “desire” as the engine of every creation. Mente de Cão is a company with members from various nationalities, who are developing scenic methodologies coming from diverse places in the globe (Japan, EUA, France, Italy, Scandinavia and Russia). We therefore envision these workshops as intercultural exchange, moved by an ideal of artistic encounter and expanding the horizon of both the company members and fellow artist participants.
