Social control, theatre of the absurd, dreams and imagination. Every room of the Roosevelt headquarters of the SP Drama School – Training Centre for the Performing Arts was shaken by the ideas brought by the Red Module students. Yesterday (5), the nine groups presented their drama projects, helped by their teachers.
This action is part of the process started last month, during which each group dialogued with a thinker at a meeting promoted here in the School. Under the epigraph “The world is composed not only of what already exists, but also of what may effectively exist,” by geographer Milton Santos, the nine groups were provoked in nine themes. Among the guests of the occasion were Luiz Fuganti, from anthropology; Guto Lacaz, from visual art; Aimar Labaki, from communication; Patricia Nakayama, from philosophy; André Martin, from geopolitics; Ladislau Dowbor, from the environment; Celso Nascimento, from music; Sergio Zlotnic, from psychoanalysis, and Cláudio Novaes Pinto, from sociology. Later, the groups departed from the themes and organized their first ideas, shown yesterday.
“This meeting was the result of the research conducted by the groups. The teachers brought new triggers to outline the present phase and the next actions,” said the pedagogical coordinator Joaquim Gama.
The executive director Ivam Cabral was excited about the event: “I believe that this is the most important moment. Defining these projects will tell us what their future will be. This is the most pleasurable moment for us all because it reveals the students’ aesthetic gaze and how magical this movement has become. To me, this phase is more valuable than the final result, though they always surprise us at the end,” said Ivam.
