Step by Step by Step
Demonstrates fragments of training forms, to highlight the different principles of the actors's physical and vocal training, as seen in the theatre anthropology. It invites the viewer to see the journey from a technical exercise to an expression of the actor's body mind imagination.
A phase where the actor creates physical and vocal sequences, drawing on inspiration from various aesthetics such as poetry, artworks, dance and various genres and styles of music and theatre. The sequences are created with a personal logic for the actor, a dramaturgy, and naturally incorporates the principles of the training which the actor embodies.
The composed sequences are used in the context of first stage of scene work. The actor's individual dramaturgy is added another 'layer' to – when the compositions are combined with a dramatic text, a comedy, a tragedy, a song, with an object or performed as a dance with music.
“Mia’s work introducing students to the training methodologies of Odin Teatret has been invaluable in allowing students to develop their practical understanding of the ways in which training can shape the perception of the performer, as well as their physical and vocal skills. Students found Mia an excellent tutor, inspiring their work in the studio through her thorough and generous attitude to their development.”
