A work demonstration with Ana Woolf (Argentina)

What is behind the curtains? The magic world of theatre and presence; the real world of obstinate daily training, so as to be able to say "I am here and now" on stage; the actress standing on her feet, wearing the shoes of her characters.

This work demonstration is an invitation to follow the years of training necessary to acquire a craft. It speaks of chaos, difficulties and ways to solve them, attempts and failures; and it tells about the encounter with the actor's teachers, touching upon topics like discipline and emotions during preparation and at the moment of facing the spectators.

The actress will present fragments of some of her performances with the intent of understanding and of better visualising the all-mysterious moment of passage from technique to stage fiction.
