This is the second workshop conducted by Teatro de los Sentidos in a series of three, which will culminate in a dramaturgical sensorial construction at the end of the season. 

Design and intervention in spaces are fundamental aspects of the 20-year research of Teatro de los Sentidos. The group has made a landmark of its dreamy, oneiric spaces full of symbolism and evocative elements.  

Course description

This workshop is a process of acknowledging the space as a second skin, as a living organism. Taking the human body as the starting point, it will explore the art of designing and building spaces. Spaces, which can be “inhabited” by performers in a symbiotic relationship – receiving audience members with games as the key element of the dynamic. Spaces designed as devices for "listening" to its visitors rather than narrative instruments. Spaces for immersive experience, not for aesthetic or intellectual information.

When does a space become alive?

What is an "imaginary"? How is it different from a set-design?

How does the "imaginary"-"inhabiting" relationship work?

How can we integrate all our senses in the design?

How does a space change the perception of our body?

How can we signify an object?

Where is the memory of a space?

These are some of the questions that will animate the research. The workshop consists of practical individual and group exercises aimed at widening awareness on space in relation to the human body – as well as the different experiences, memories and feelings that this relationship can trigger.
