matéria leve - Study group
- 13.09 — 02.10 2023
Alkantara, in collaboration with matéria leve, is calling for applications to join the matéria leve study group.
matéria leve is a scenic lighting training project coordinated by Leticia Skrycky. The project is directed at women, non-binary and transgender people. It aims to be a collective learning space that is crossed by three lines: research, experimentation and technique.
The Open Call seeks to form a study group interested in scenic design as a performative language. This group will watch a set of plays presented at the Alkantara Festival, analyzing the particular situations of each work.
matéria leve will have its first edition next year, and will start with a call for proposals that will open in January 2024. It is proposed as a collective learning space and participation will be free of charge. We encourage people with an interest in training to sign up for this first activity as part of the Alkantara Festival 2023.
