Under the Master's project work in Performing Arts - present interpretation, the student at ESTC plans to set up an air theater show based in "A Dream" and "Hell" by August Strindberg, using techniques of circus apparatus.
The main objective of this final master work is to build an air theater show, based on a theater text where the "word" reigns. In this version the text is spoken narrative and air body movement of the actors will be the visual narrative. Because it is possible to Strindberg hanging from a trapeze and because you can make a Agnes, daughter of Indra, down to a vertical fabric while analyzing the heavy and human suffering of the Earth's inhabitants. Because a fixed trapeze can be a window of "a dream" and a vertical fabric can be slide to hell.
Because the Art should be rich in diversity and why is needed "a dream" and theatrical air.
And, above all, because a master's degree in performing arts there to risk and try, above all, innovate and contribute to a growing cultural diversity in our country.
