LFacting presents “REVERSE DRAMATURGY”

Los Angeles, USA

January 26th 2019

Location: Zebulon, Los Angeles

Date: Sat 26 Jan

Time: 2-5pm

A Stage Performance Workshop by Labros Filippou for actors, directors (cinema/theater), writers, and also performers, musicians, singers, dancers and poets of all kinds and levels of experience.

* Directors, yes this workshop is all about the work you do with the actors. It’s about the Architecture of Relationships.

* Writers, the word Dramaturgy describes your creative identity in its whole, as the Dramaturgist is actually the Writer. So, this workshop is also about you.

* Please, feel free to bring your musical instruments, if you know or don’t really know how to play one.

“REVERSE DRAMATURGY” opens a new circle of Workshops for LFacting and Labros Filippou in Europe and the US. This is an exercise about freedom of expression and an educational task about breaking free of all the behavioral patterns and comfort zones that obstruct expression. This is a work about the revelation of the on stage character through the on stage relationships.

A Reverse Dramaturgical Analysis and Approach, where the performer won’t get in the on stage relationship obeying to all the characteristics that the theatrical condition suggests nor will they walk according to the theatrical forms that “make sense” due to the genre of the theatrical, musical, dance or so act.

The performers will walk on stage naked and clean from all the pre-decided characteristics and behavioral elements of the role, in order for them to witness their own revelation by engaging to the relationships through dialogue.

This revelation will “dress the performer up” with all that the here and now suggests.

NEW Teaching Section!

31 October 2018

Good morning people!

I’d like to announce right away that a new section of group classes just opened for LFacting. I strongly desire to teach and organize performance classes and artistic acts everywhere around Los Angeles, Greece, Europe, the US and the World.

The workshop I intend to do is an exercise about freedom of expression and an attempt to apply musicality on speech and communication, in order for expression to become a game and communication to become joy, like an investment to building relationships (also check the “Reverse Dramaturgy” paragraph at the Teaching Philosophy of this website). We will invest to stories that ask for storytellers – both the performer and the audience will be the storytellers.

Expression owes to be nurtured with truth and freedom, from the moment one starts to learn how to write and read, in order for one to be ready to welcome social syndromes with love and compassion and no fear.

These workshops gear towards directors, theatrologists, school teachers, basketball coaches, coaches of all sports, prison officers, youth leaders, tutors in orphanages and rehabilitation centers and so on.

The class will take place in three stages.

Stage One:

Young children 7-12 years old will be the students and all the above tutors and teachers will be the audience and assistants of the class.

Stage Two:

The audience-assistants will become the students of the class.

Stage Three:

The students will become the Teachers and I will be their assistant.

More than ever, I’m open to collaborate with foundations, universities, drama schools, art schools, football clubs, basketball teams and all sports teams, rehabilitation centers, orphanages, prisons, monasteries, conservatories, theatre organizations and so on.

Please, feel free to share the news with people who could be interested in these workshops! Refer people and connect us with them. Let create something beautiful.

Thank you!

Good day!

Greece has always been taking care of me and I’m doing my best to treat her (as mother land) with my best way of showing gratitude and care.

Let’s start from point ‘zero’, where there is nothing. But, most of all, there is no fear.

Where there is no fear, what’s left is freedom.Let’s do this.

Human existence balances between the fear of loneliness (rejection, failure and so on) and the possibility of freedom.

Where there is fear, there is no possibility of freedom. Where there is no fear, what’s left is freedom.
