„My work centers around the journey of going through an artistic and creative experience, which is in itself a process of awareness about our original self.“ Pasquale Esposito
The five senses are the ministers of the soul. (Leonardo da Vinci)
Sensory and Awareness is the base to start a research about what is real, what is original, what is an experience, what is happening right now. All those questions are important for an actor, for an artist to create.
In this intensiv weekend, we will explore the difference between sensations and perceptions. We will inquire and explore our own body as the field, the context, where sensations happen. We will work on individual and group’s exercises. Improvisations and scenes. We will go from Chi kung exercises, to martial arts exercises and Zen principles.
We will have a practical possibility to face our self and see that maybe we never really felt anything. We will be confronted with our using everything that is around us as a way to survive as an image.
The big cost we pay for that, is not living this game called life. Sensory Awareness is a practical, physical seminar on aliveness and creativity.
