Dezső Virág (Netherlands)

Musicality of Movement | 17-22 July

Mastercourses, 2022
Information

Practical lesson based on a physical approach to deepen music interpretation, to increase quality in stage/concert- and music theater performance. The program is focusing on training the musicians/composers/performers in body and spatial awareness, physical dialogue. We start from discovering and understanding the body and its musicality in relation to space, working on neutrality as a basis, articulation in all aspects and interaction. "musicalité de mouvement" is the core issue of contemporary mime and movement theater as further developed during the 24 years laboratory work of the Moving Academy for Performing Arts (MAPA-Amsterdam) and further designed as a study program for musicians in the Conservatory of Amsterdam by Virág Dezső. It includes all performing art qualities as clear focus, rhythm, energy and intensity, sensitivity and sensuality as well. This particular pedagogical program is based on training the musicians/composers/ performers in physical, spatial awareness, physical dialogue and feedback through individual, partner and group exercises. In an advanced level using instant composition as a challenge of recognizing the special qualities of the given moment and be able to make instant decision without any doubt relying on developed skills and trust. The final result shows vulnerable, playful musicians, able to surprise themselves and the spectator by a combination of preciseness and originality. www.musicalityofmovement.com
