You decide to work on the Edgar Allen Poe’s captivating and dark image-rich poem, “The Raven.” Shadowy impressions of that ebony bird posed upon the bust of Pallus had haunted your thoughts for decades but it was only recently that you imagined dramatizing it. Then when you find yourself tapping your feet to the rythym of a jazz musician’s trumpet at The Garth Gallery in Columbia, Pennsylvania, the idea bursts into your consciousness.
So you read the poem. How in Hell can you work this into a theatrical presentation? Theater involves a special kind of communication with spectators: the script is the guide, but the breath and the voice in all of their variations bring life to
The Raven visits the Garth
You are alone, in silence, in darkness, with your fantasies, all is a shambles, and sadness sees no light. A verse enters your memory, images flitter in the dim reflected light of the fireplace. Edgar is there slumped over and mumbling about a strange visitor, an illusion from the past whispers in your ear: “It’s the Raven, it has returned! Wake up! Oh, is it you my love, Lenore is it you?”
Night of poetry reading and dramatization of “The Raven.” Come read your favorite poem, listen to others read theirs, then grab your seat for Alfred Hopkins’ dramatization of Poe’s me... (... continúa)
Since Biblical times moneylending has been a source of profound conflict—and it continues to haunt financial, social and cultural life in most parts of the world. When William Shakespeare wrote “The Merchant of Venice” Christianity objected to charging interest on loans, an attitude that was not shared by the Jewish community. This gave way to numerous confrontations and was also used to flaunt anti-Semitism. Today, as well as in 1596, lending money gives the lender power to impose conditions on the borrower.
In Shakespeare’s play Bassanio, a young Venitian noble, is in love with the beautiful and wealthy Portia of Belmont, but having squandered his estate he needs 3

Barry Kornhauser’s life and passion is the stage, yet it seemed appropriate to start the interview in a more mundane way, so after shaking hands I said bluntly: “Hello Barry! Nice office you have here…Well, just to get started: who is Barry Kornhauser?”

It takes energy, impulse, determination and faith to achieve even what we might consider to be insignificant goals, on stage or in everyday life. What is essential, however, is the process leading up to the realization of those objectives. Peter Brook put it this way: "Acting begins with a tiny inner movement so slight that it is almost completely invisible." It then grows, turns into energy, energy into impulse, impulse into desire, desire into determination; for achievement to take place we need faith, we need to believe in our actions and in the possibility of success.
Is that not also what happens in a love relationship? First an inner movement appears. A message emerges in our most innermost self. It manifests itself in the form of excitement, a surge of energy causes our heart to beat faster, an impulse brin... (... continúa)
We all need to work towards clear objectives. First the group appears. They get to know each other limbering up body, voice and soul. Then the story appears.
"Dramatic literature requires a responsiveness, not just of mind,but of the whole body," says S.W.Dawson, "so that the whole work realize itself."
At one point it becomes necessary to invite spectators--that's how actors measure their achievements,that is the objective--to test their achievements in front of an audience.
Most of the participants in our demonstration class of theatre in English have had little or no previous acting experience. They have joined the workshop to i... (... continúa)

Summer is a time for learning in a more relaxed environment. Bearing that in mind the Färo theatre is organizing a workshop every other Saturday, starting Jan. 12th, acting out songs. The only requirement is an intermediate to advanced command of English.
"Participants are asked to bring in their favourite song," explained the California born coach of the event. "After working on voice and body expression, games, role-play and improvisations will be organized for the songs worked on during each encounter. The activity is aimed at enhancing vocal and physical expression but likewise uses acting technique to develop concentration, self confidence, projection, use of space and characterization."
The workshops will be held on January 12th and 26th and February 9th and 23rd, from 4 to 8pm. at the Färo theatre, 2151 Moreno street 2-B, Buenos Aires City. Participants ca... (... continúa)
It happened last Sunday evening. Everyone seemed to arrive at once: the actores, the spectators, the girl in charge of the lights, the coach, the directress of the Faro Company. Nora went about putting the last touches on her "Leg of Lamb." Kiran Sharbis was in a tet-a-tet with his acting companion, Verónica. Jessica, the social worker was dressed splendly, Marcia, the poor Italian immigrant mother began to move about with her "other" body; Cecily, looking as smart as could be in her business suit, asked the coach if her red carpet would fit in her role as narrator in "The Lover," and Gwen, Natalie and Gideon calmly went about putting the finishing touches on their costumes. "The Theatre Game" was about to begin.

Is there any common ground between theatre and sports activities? Here is what a number of important dramaturgists have said:
Martin Esslin: "Theatre can be seen as a spectator sport. And if you watch a very great actor like Laurence Olivier you will notice that his evident enjhouyment of the physical aspects of acting (as when be balances on the edge of a chair, fixing a light bulb in O?Neill’s LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT or tumbles down a long flight of steps as the dying Coriolanus, not to mention the vast voice range in his Othello) forms a decisive element in his impact as weel as in his approach to the art of acting....

A theatrical version of Edgar A. Poe’s "The Telltale Heart," acted and directed by Alfred Hopkins, will be staged Saturday July 7th, with the improvisation of musician Claudio Sánchez and painter Gabriela Fernández. The story is about a man who cannot stand the expression in the eye of his companion, so he decides to kill him; he says he loves him but just can’t stand the look in his eye. That leads to a consideration concerning what is behind the way we look at each other.
"The Telltale Heart," July 7th at 9:30pm.
Faro theater, 2151 Moreno street 2-B.

“Learning entails strengthening connections between neurons—by creating more connections between neurons as well as by enhancing their ability to communicate chemically. These changes link neurons in a chain that can be retraced to evoke a certain movement or feeling or thought...”

Men and women have been acting, role-playing and telling stories since the dawn of history. Today actors and story tellers (also teachers) use a wide variety of techniques to embellish the stories they tell or act out. The performer needs to polish skills related to breathing, use of the voice, mind, memory, emotions, gestures, body expression, movement, concentration, imagination, projection; performers should be good observers, cultivate an inquisitive spirit; they should develop open-mindedness, self-critical attitudes, flexibility and willingness to recognize the inevitable errors which pop up in the give and take of human relationships.
Actors need to get to know their own potential,... (... continúa)
There will be a free demonstration class of theater in English on March 31st at 1pm at the Faro theater, 2151 Moreno street 2-B, in downtown Buenos Aires. All those persons with an intermediate to superior command of English are warmly invited to attend.
Led by a native coach, the workshop is dedicated to using acting and creative techniques to improve language, enhance communication and bring to birth the hidden creator who lies inside us, waiting for his opportunity to express himself.
The workshop will continue during the year at the same theater, Saturdays from 12 to 3 pm., with work on diction, voice, use of space and energy, body limbering, how to create and tell stories and the staging of short plays.

Retelling is an essential aspect of communication. We use retelling when we talk about what happened to us yesterday, the movie we saw last night or when we consciously or unconsciously use role-play to enhance our description of something that has happened to us. In recreating our experiences or talking about those of characters in movies, stories or plays, we involve our feelings, our reasoning process, diverse timbers of voice, gestures and body language.
Acting technique therefore is an essential tool for language learners because it deals with how to come to terms with the big or little conflicts in our own lives or in the lives of characters in stories, plays, movies or even in our own experiences. Attempting to comprehend the way people communicate their ideas... (... continúa)

Starting this Saturday the Macondo theater in Buenos Aires will be the scene for a unique summer workshop acting out scenes from movies. "We believe theatre and creative activity can reinforce language, liberate body and soul and bring about a more positive response to life's unending challenges," say the organizers.
"After watching the scenes we will organize role play activity and do improvisations based on the characters and conflicts, adding to them our own creative reconstruction of each situation.
"The scenes will be filmed so as to compare our versions with those of the actors in the movie.
"Although the workshop will be in English, it is possible that those who feel their English is not polished enough may form a team to work in Spanish.<... (... continúa)
True. Everybody plays a role in life. Boss, employee, maid, domineering husband, nagging spouse; we become self righteous with some, self effacing with others; that loving father becomes a hard nosed capitalist in his office, a prime and proper lady turns into a sex pot at a swinger's gathering...We rarely act the same way, we are chameleons even though we claim to never change our behavior patterns.

Way back when men and women were living in caves or wandering around looking for some animal to kill and roast on the fire, they began telling stories and acting out their fears, dreams and beliefs. Not strange then that dramatic techniques, role-playing storytelling have become essential educational tools. They demand discipline, concentration, mutual respect, creativity, imagination, self criticism and inter and outer directed learning. Storytellers and actors must develop an inquisitive spirit, cultivate open-mindedness and learn how to work together. They must be good observers and be willing to explore their own possibilities as wee as those of the group. They must get to know... (... continúa)

Inside every brain an untold number of images flash on and off according to time, circumstance and need. They are the tools of creative people, of artists, actors, singers, dancers, writers and even philosophers, scientists and religious persons. Every instant our senses register thousands upon thousands of the "pictures" we take of the diverse situations we confront in our daily lives. These pictures are unique because some are visual, others auditive, others related to our sense of taste, smell or touch. Since they are so many it is impossible to recall all of them, or relate to them all at one given moment, so we conveniently store them away for future reference.
Not only individuals, but also nations and ethnic groups store images in their collecti... (... continúa)
Chi Kung practitioners claim that the mind can control and manipulate the flow of energy which one can create through proper breathing. Nobody has yet invented a way to stop the wear and tear of time. But the practice of daily breathing drills can certainly enhance our ability to lead a more healthy and creative life. The key is the circulation of energy, too often blocked by emotional crisis, stress or diverse forms of self denial. Here are a number of simple drills which, if practiced daily, can not only keep body and mind alive with adequate flow of energy; they can also enhance creativity and therefore are of great use for actors and storytellers....

Doing theater, playing, pretending you are the King of Denmark or a down-trodden office worker, screwing your face up, getting into the skin of the other guy, moving your body the way you never do in your placid every-day existence, using your voice to seduce a woman you will never fall in love with or lambast an unscrupulous boss...all is in the book when you enter the fascinating world of acting and storytelling. So...if you are in Buenos Aires sweating out January, why not give theater a chance?
The Hop-to-it Theater Lab announces a summer workshop in Buenos Aires, Argentina, starting January 3 at 2 p.m. The workshop is a wonderful opportunity to practice English while learning acting and storytelling.

You think of so many things before an interview, don't you? What questions to ask, what information you want to obtain...Sometimes also phrases flash through your mind. Such as this one by James Joyce: "The artist, like the God of creation,remains within or behind, or beyond or above his handiwork, invisible, refined out of existence,indifferent, paring his fingernails.” With those words ringing in his ears, the journalist approached Susan Cocimano, an Argentine who uses acting to teach English.
“I’m looking for a blond Argentine drama teacher.?
“Oh, really? Here I am!
“Well, Susan, I would like to ask you a few questions about your work.
“Well, to begin with, who is Susan C.?
