Workshop Eva Geatti in cooperation with LETÍ Theatre and TWB

LETÍ THEATRE AND TWB 24. 5. - 26. 5. Káznice GENRE: Industry program

The Geography of the Gut is the original method of Italian performer, director and author Eva Geatti, which consists of self-creation and mental geography. Self-creation represents an individual’s effort to maintain a fixed position in time while searching for spontaneous and original movement. The individual learns to perceive every part of his body, including the internal organs, without resorting to automatism, and practices the perception of the body as a machine. Mental geography is an exercise in which the individual, in constant movement, does not stop talking (memories, hallucinations, experiences, discoveries, images, dreams…) and tries to transfer his thoughts to the body, to the depth of his organs. In the spaces of the Káznice, the workshop will also deal with the relationship between man and the environment that affects him.
The workshop with Eva Geatti is part of the two-year European project Fabulamundi: New Voices, in which LETÍ Theatre in collaboration with Theatre World Brno is preparing an immersive production involving six authors and four directors of the young generation. The intensive workshop will culminate in a public presentation of the work in progress.

Eva Geatti (*1981) is an Italian author, director, performer and scenographer. In 2003 she founded Cosmesi Theatre Company, with which she has presented her work at many national and international festivals – including Santarcangelo, Drodesera and Short Theatre. She currently teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna.
