As part of the project The Body’s Journey, we have the pleasure to invite you to a conference/demonstration followed by a Master Class of Elizabeth de Roza, teacher of Lasalle College of the Arts, School of Theatre and Dance, Singapore.
Exploration of the body-in-motion through Kalaripayattu (traditional South Indian Martial Arts form).
How the training of Kalaripayattu leads to the embodiment of physical awareness of an actor. Investigating ‘the point of resonance’ that is akin to ‘presence’. Through this investigation, the actor develops a physical score that works on 5 basic rules of the body-in-space (soft fireworks). This active visceral response paired with the intellectually vivid physical vocabulary of Kalaripayattu retrained the actor’s body awakened to the creation of the body in performance (image-actions).
Topics addressed will be:
- Exploration of the ideology of Kalaripayattu as a vehicle for the embodiment of physical awareness and breath-in-motion
- Investigation of the heighten spine as a tool for the development of physical action
- The exploration of the 5 poses in Kalaripayattu as an active visceral response to ‘awaken’ the actor’s body to the creation of the body in performance (image-actions).

We are excited to announce an event of corporeal improvisation that will surprise you, MetaFora:
Saturday, May 14, 2016, 8pm

Public : Tout Public Durée : 90 – 120 minutes

BRINGING METAPHORS TO LIFE THROUGH CORPOREAL IMPROVISATION
MetaFora presents a form of improvisational theatre based on corporeal and vocal expression. Unlike the ‘battles’ that focus on virtuosic performance, the stage intensity result from the challenge of bringing to life a metaphor. In front of an audience, the actors/dancers/singers/musicians have only a few minutes to transport the audience into a poetic universe. Metaphor, “Meta” derives from the Greek meaning “across, and after,” and “phor” (pherō), meaning “I bear, carry”. “Metafora” is the Portuguese translation. While it carries the same sense as in English, “Meta” can also mean “goal” and “fora” mean “outside”. Thus, the goal of the metaphors is to stretch the boundaries of the imagination beyond the habitual and the mundane. It is going “in through the outdoor” according to Led Zeppelin. The event takes place in two parts: In the first part, a group of selected or “invited” performing artists play together based on random hat selection. In the second part, the “invited” performing artists improvise with volunteers of the public in duo, trios.
