Announcement for a second research team creation and one artist or group residency. #online #classes

Thank you so much for you interest in regards to my recent calling about the team I wanted to create, that will consist of people who will work with us as a research team and collaborators on the dramaturgical analysis on a specific project chosen by the artist in residency.

The submissions were more than I could fit in for this project with the subject: “woman in tradition and how we can redevelop her status through art”, that the artist I’m coaching chose.

This encouraged me, though, to go on and announce the creation of a second research team.
But first, I’ll have to find the next artist or group in residency.

Artists need to send me a proposal for a project in development or ready to start developing. Please, send me your proposal at lfacting3@gmail.com.

Then, I will proceed with the formation of the research team that will work for this project. The team will consist of 5-7 people. The participants have to understand and speak English fluently and be professionally related to one or more of the following fields: Theater, cinema, dance, music, poetry, literature-linguistics, psychology – specializing in group therapy, sociology, political science, neuroscience, architecture, anthropology, physics, chemistry, biology.

Classes will be two-hour long and will take place every Saturday, 12pm NY time. This is an open call worldwide. This workshop will start on the 11th of April for the artist/group in residency and the 18th April for the research team. It will go until the 20th of June.

The cost for the artist in residency is $550 (+$150 for every artist, if it is a group) and for every participant in the team $120 total.
Thank you and looking forward to receiving your submissions.
Please, tag, forward, share this with your friends.

Από την επόμενη Πέμπτη, 2 Απρίλη, στις 7μμ Ελλάδας, θέλω να ανοίξω τα μαθήματα που κάνω σε μια θαυμάσια Ελληνίδα καλλιτέχνιδα με βάση το Βερολίνο.
Το άνοιγμα-κάλεσμα αφορά σε μια ομάδα ανθρώπων που θέλω να δημιουργήσω, που την ονομάζω «ερευνητική ομάδα και συνεργάτες στη δραματουργία», που θα αποτελείται από 5 έως 7 ανθρώπους. Οι άνθρωποι αυτοί θα παρακολουθούν το μάθημα, θα κρατούν σημειώσεις και θα παρεμβαίνουν συμβουλευτικά ως συνεργάτες-ερευνητές, στη διαδικασία της ανάπτυξης και του σχεδιασμού του project.
Το θέμα της παράστασής της είναι «η γυναίκα μέσα στην παράδοση και πως μπορούμε να αναδιαμορφώσουμε την εικόνα της στο παρόν, μέσω της τέχνης» και τα βασικά μέσα της είναι η μουσική, η φωνή και το performance.
Το κόστος της συμμετοχής θα είναι 10€ κατ’ άτομο, ανά μάθημα.
Τα μαθήματα γίνονται μια φορά την εβδομάδα, το κάθε μάθημα έχει διάρκεια 2 ώρες, και οι συναντήσεις θα διαρκέσουν ως το τέλος Μαΐου.
Δηλώστε συμμετοχή στο lfacting3@gmail.com.
Ευχαριστώ,
Λάμπρος

Next Thursday, April 2nd, 7pm Greece time, I’m opening the class I have with a brilliant Greek artist based in Berlin.
This opening-calling is about a group of people I would like to create, which is going to be a research team and a collaborator on the dramaturgical analysis. This team will consist of 5-7 people who will audit the class, keep notes and get involved in the development of the project of the artist as consultants.
The project’s theme is “woman in tradition and how we can redevelop her status through art”. The basic means of the performance are music, voice and performance.
The rate will be 10 euros per person, per class and the classes will take place weekly for two hours, until the end of May. This classes language will be Greek for dramaturgical reasons.
Submit at lfacting3@gmail.com.
Thank you,
Labros

Scholarship announcement:
Throughout the years, I’ve been offering scholarships to artists that needed to take a workshop or several classes, but couldn’t afford it at that time. It’s time for another one.
I announce a full 3-month scholarship for one artist or theatrical/dance/music group (band), starting this March.
This isn’t part of the monthly workshops I’m doing in New York, but a separate worldwide calling that occurs to private coaching for an artist or group from around the world. Classes are going to take place in a weekly basis, through Skype, in English or Greek.
I’ll be assisting the artist(s) to better understand, manage and lead their craft in its best volume.
The artist/group needs to send me a cover letter, including age, artistic field and anything you’d like to share about your vision and work. Also, please, write a paragraph describing why you’d like to take these classes, as well as why you can’t afford them at the moment. There will be a review of your email followed be an interview and if it all looks like a good fit for this calling, then we start working.
Send your email at lfacting3@gmail.com.
Thank you and looking forward to your messages. Let your friends know.
Best,
Labros

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!
