[EN] Devising Techniques from the dramaturgy of everyday life
The workshop will focus on devising techniques from the dramaturgy of everyday life. Building on approaches used in Beyond Caring (national Theatre) Alexander Zeldin will work from source material from the participants’ daily experience of work... The thematic focus of the workshop will be on using theatre to interrogate the experience of being young and without work, or in precarious work, living in a crisis. He will also work from some set materials given beforehand, which will take the form of a documentary film, The Hermits, about a group of men living in emergency hostel accommodation during winter. Furthermore, the workshop will work on «writing on performers» which is to say creating a play from who and what each actor carries within them...
Alexander Zeldin (1985) is a previous assistant director of Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne. After productions in Egypt, Italy at the Naples Festival, Miryang Festival in South Korea, the Rustaveli in Georgia and two seasons directing operas in Russian at the Mariinsky Opera in 2011, Alexander formed an ensemble of actors in the UK with the aim of collaborating together long term in projects where he writes through a devising process. Their projects include Doing the Idiots (NT STUDIO 2012) (a response to Lars von Trier’s film The Idiots), Shemehe and Beyond Caring (YARD THEATRE, 2015) by Alexander Zeldin. Beyond Caring transferred to the National Theatre, where Alexander and the company will also début their new production Love in December 2016, in a coproduction with the Birmingham REP.
His work has been recognised by a nomination to the Rolex Mentor Protege Award in 2012, for the leading young artistic voices of the future.
Alexander is a recipient of the Quercus Trust Award 2015 and has been appointed Associate Director at Birmingham Repertory Theatre.
