THE RETURN OF DIONYSUS - the Method of Theodoros Terzopoulos – workshop
Heiner Müller, Berlin, 1987
The workshop is an introduction to the renowned and influential method of Theordoros Terzopoulos that is being taught in International Drama Academies, Drama Schools and Universities, and has inspired actors all over the world. Terzopoulos’ Method focuses on the emancipation of the trapped energy and voice, and aims to reconstitute the lost unity between the word and the body.
This training paradigm, through a sequence of dynamic physical and vocal exercises, is created to cultivate the fundamental principles of the performer’s craft: diaphragmatic breath control, in-body concentration, strengthening and activation of the corporal axles in connection to the body center, liberation of the sound sources and resonators of the body. Participants will investigate the training elements through a rhythmic interpretation of a text (ancient Greek tragedy and classic texts).
