Hambre y Vida
Hambre y vida – theater laboratory of antagon theaterAKTion
march 03-20 2017
We would like to invite you to Hambre y vida our full-time theatre laboratory dedicated to yearly refreshing of the antagon reality & your possibility to get in touch with it.
For 17 days we´ll live, train & create together in a desert mountain landscape near the coast of Andalusia.
You’ll experience the process of being part of the creative antagon collective, as well as the daily live structure – people interacting with each other in a complex group:
Each person for him- or herself; each person for the group; the group for every individual.
Daily teachings of improvisation-, dance- & theatre-techniques, stilt walking & acrobatics, emotional theatrical work, improving our perception.
Using this learned skills directly in creation, trans theatrical expeditions & much more will be on our daily agenda.
antagon is 25 years experienced & lived vision of professional physical theatre in public spaces – based on a group process of living & working together.
antagon created numerous shows & performances & toured them internationally.
From the first day of our existence – antagon was motivated by the actual & political issues. They are the origin of our shows. At the moment we have 6 Shows in our repertoire. In 2016 we will focus on 4 of them.
The creative work of antagon includes:
Transformation of the public space into a confronting poetic theatre atmosphere.
Using organic theatre in public spaces as key to touch audiences emotionally.
Understanding the nature of human being.
Searching for answers to the fundamental & actual questions of life.
* Where do we come from?
* Where are we right now?
* Where are we going?
* Where am I & where are you?
The red hot issue concerning the time we are living in: What is the aim of the theatre in times of upcoming 3rd World War & intercontinental refugee movement?
For example our show GINKGO – reflecting the situation in Hiroshima in the 2nd world war – has now gotten again a new macabre actuality.
A lot of things happened & influenced the process – at the moment the fact of children & coming babies in the group creates a new energy. They may be the 3rd antagon generation but for now its challenging our organisation & course changes inside the ensemble.
We are looking for people who are interested in our vision & who are open to get involved in a process with antagon.
Your process could begin with this experimental & intensive laboratory in spain.
