Title: Dynamo/Rhythm – When drama and poetry are embodied by the actor

In order to achieve the possibility for becoming an author/performer, the actor has to delve into the possibilities of her body. The more mastery of the movement, the greater the scale of the performer’s expression. The Corporeal Mime technique of Etienne Decroux is a system concerning the learning and training of the body as an instrument by studying some techniques of articulations, weight and counterweight, and the dynamo-rhythm.
The rhythm of the dynamo-rhythm is not the rhythm as understood by Plato; it often has a particular cadence since it is drawn from human gestures specific to a task or concrete actions. The dynamic is the play that the actor engages with force and energy, the impulse and power of movements, channelled by the resistances imposed on them. Dynamics are, therefore, at the origin of each movement and an essential part of it. It is impossible to see force or energy, yet we perceive or deduce its existence. And it is there the possibility for the actor to embody the drama and, more than to interpret a character, to create according to her physical/emotional/imaginative experience in any style of theatre.
