Theater of Movement

Elefante Elegante focuses on interpretation based on the theatricality of movement. We offer training that explores attitudes, body language and movements which daily life does not allow us to perform. Through playful improvisation, the Theater of Movement uncovers and develops perception, intuition and the body´s own spontaneity.

The Theater of movement allows the actor to approach theatrical interpretation in a progressive manner, constantly nourishing the more technical aspects of different theatrical techniques with the richness of dramatic states.



The first level

Expressive work
The first level of expressive work consists of integrating the body in space so as to rediscover its plasticity. This means recognizing the body, its dynamics and possibilities of movement.

The second level

consists of identification
The second level consists of identification. The human body is capable of imitating absolutely everything that exists in nature. By “imitating” we mean “transform into”, “be”. In this way, through the actor´s suggestion the audience does not see a body, but sees water, the wind, a forest, or a mountain. The human body in movement is even capable of suggesting a sound, a color or a material.
