This workshop, “Escritas Performativas e Dispositivos de Criação”, explored different functions and writing places in performing arts creation and training processes. Traditionally linked to the work of the playwright and theory, writing here integrated diverse creative devices, involving traditional contemplative practices, body-voice exercises, readings and rewritings, production of texts in different formats, dialogues, reflections, scenic compositions and performance acts.

These strategies aimed to refine the quality of attention and presence, exploring different language games and ways of meeting the audience. It was therefore intended to create environments and situations that unveiled and produced other qualities of being together and of personal cultivation.

Some working topics:

– Writing as practice and training;

– Breathing, silence and quality of attention;

– Voice, sound, vibration, word;

– Reading, body and listening;

– Devices in pairs;

– Exploration and creation of spaces and environments;

– Crossings and walks;

– Investigation of habits;

– Text rewriting;

– Dreams, writing, scene;

– Word and absence.

 Literary and dramaturgical material was provided for the exercises and suggestions from participants were incorporated.
