Play reading is the performance of a play by a group of readers. It is not just reading aloud it is an art in itself.
Staged reading is a form of theatre without sets or full costumes where actors read and incorporate minimal stage movements and other dramatic elements. A play in progress.
Both play and staged reading in theatre imply voice, written words, tone, intention, movement and feelings. The purpose is to gauge the effectiveness of the dialogue, incorporating movement, pacing and flow.
The audience also becomes an important actor because their feedback contributes to the process. When audience and readers interact, a communion takes place, and the play comes to life. A full circle.
This workshop will be divided in four moments
1. Introducing the Playwright
2. Reading and staging the play
3. Debate and reflecting in groups
4. Sharing our comments
