The work will follow a short story by Gabriel García Márquez - The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World. We will create images inspired by the short story and create an alternative imagery and interpretation for the story. We will work with clear instructions and tasks. The participants will work alone, in pairs and in groups following clear scores in order to develop scenes that create small stories. Parallel to that, the participants will also learn movement material which will enter the choreographic score. We will examine how a story can be relevant to what will be creating in the studio. There will be textual assignments, and there will be use of objects and text in the work.
