First call

Residency organized by Katedra kultury in ŁÓDŹ, Poland.

November 17th - 21st 2009.

Lasting 5 days residency will be an intense acting training based on Chorea Theatre's experience. The participants will concentrate on working with the body, voice and rhythm and on searching for the ways in which the actor can use these means simultaneously. The aim of the workshop is to develop a diverse language of expression and communication as well as original, innovative theatrical forms within the group of participants.


Each day will start with intense physical training. The next step will be introducing elements of acrobatics, therein, the basics of working with a partner and the space, mutual attention, assurance, body consciousness, group consciousness and interaction with partner. We will also take up choreography, which is a result of many years of the team's study of ancient iconography, drawings on ceramics, bass-reliefs and ancient mosaics. Musical polyphonic and polyrhythmic patterns will be built on the movement structures elaborated by participants. Part of the work will be devoted to building up the musicality, dynamism and energy of the group.


Basic breathing exercises, controlling the diaphragmatic breath, activating resonators and working on the timbre of voice will serve to develop the natural vocal capabilities of participants. The next step will be building the compound harmonic consonances and learning to sing chants coming from different circles of tradition, including ancient Greek.


The significant part of the workshops will be devoted to working with rhythm and its meaning in the theatre. The main emphasis will be put on irregular rhythms - specifically found in Antiquity, Balkan music, Middle Eastern and Jazz... Working with rhythm will allow us to introduce our method of playing out text and music on stage. We will introduce uneven rhythms, by means of simple steps, clapping hands, voice and rhythmic gestures - so by concentrating on finding the rhythm of our own body and consequently the rhythm of the group. We will use original passages from ancient Greek tragedies and ancient chants as well as compositions from our performances. The final phase of the workshops will be binding all of the above described elements of Chorea's acting training and creating a short theatrical form.


Activity of the CHOREA Theatre Association is a continuation of work started by two groups in the "Gardzienice" Center of Theatrical Practice: The Anctient Orchestra and The Labirynth Dance Formation. After three years of an intense, international activity, the theatre found its permanent residence in Lodz and, together with Lodz Art Center and the city of Lodz, created in the year 2007 a new cultural center - the Art Factory in Lodz.

At the beginnings of its artistic activity Chorea drew from the ancient tradition. Researching the sources of dance and music it explored the culture of the antiquity. The results of its researches were confronted with modern theatrical forms and resulted in innovative, dynamic performances in which the tradition meets the modernity.
