Art is a vehicle to shift society’s vision toward deep questions that involve our everyday lives.
Theatre can change time and space to let the audience find answers to deep questions unreachable in our everyday lives.
As creators, we have to find the way to become a connection for the audience with themselves.
We have to discover the path that will lead the audience to their own answers.
This is an inner development as a human being, but also as creators. We must redefine the language.
This quest will help us in creating the experience that hopefully will let the audience connect with themselves and find an answer.
This sincere and real dialogue that we wish to establish is an ethereal goal that needs specific tools, implication and, why not, a dose of luck to achieve it. Luck is not in our hands, so we focus on developing these tools in order to grow as creators and performers.
All the work is framed under the working ideas of our decalogue:
1. A creator must have commitment.
2. A creator needs courage and honesty during all stages of his work.
3. He has to develop his imagination, stimulating it and training it daily.
4. Knowledge opens the door to the imagination and sets the limits and rules of play in relation to each work process.
5. A creator needs a body and a spirit trained and ready for the possibilities of the imagination. A body and a spirit must not become an obstacle but rather a vehicle.
6. The work of the actor is connected to his present state and it must serve to improve his self-knowledge and the knowledge of his surroundings. On stage, this knowledge must allow him to transcend, becoming a physical channel for the audience with themselves through the life on stage.
7. The final goal of an actor-creator is to become this physical channel, which means embodying what is required in each moment of the performance. If it is a realistic work, for example, it will be necessary to create a sample of behavior giving it physical, psychological, emotional and verbal life.
8. Deep knowledge comes from the entrails. Life cannot be transmitted through any other way.
9. The impulses, instincts and the management of these constitute life. An actor can only live through the action.
10. The world changes, and the art changes with or ahead of it. The audience changes. There are universal images, but there are perceptions and values strongly linked to cultures. Only through these images and cultural perceptions will we reach universal values.
