Singing Session

The Workcenter has researched ancient songs based on African and Caribbean traditions. It follows the songs that one leader calls and repeats, transforming each actor's action into energy, and also allowing the inner energy to flow to another actor or the surrounding environment without clogging. 

Acting Proposition

Each accepted participant will prepare a three-minute acting proposition prior to the start of the class, based upon either a song or a text. It should be repeatable, with a beginning, a development, and an ending, like a short performance. Thomas Richards and actors propose deliberate feedback on the performances and make sure the artist is precisely aware of why he or she is doing such acts, freeing from pumping and cliché. It will be further developed under the guidance of Mr. Richards and his assistants throughout the Workshop and presented on the last day. 

Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards


The Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards founded in 1986 by Grotowski who one of the most important and influential theatre practitioners of the 20th century in Pontedera is developing a line of performance research known as Art as vehicle. After his death in 1999, Thomas Richards has been leading the Workcenter, developing Grotowski’s work, comprised of 25 artists from 12 countries each working in a distinct team: the Focused Research Team, the Open Program, and the Workcenter Studio in residences.
