    The 16th session of ISTA - The International School of Theatre Anthropology - will take place in Greccio (Italy) during the period 5-15 August 2020. Its theme is: The Actor’s Scenic and Social Presence.

    Masters from different theatre and dance traditions, in collaboration with Eugenio Barba, will introduce the participants to the pre-expressive level of their styles, i.e. the level of scenic presence. The technical principles which govern the craft of an actor/dancer are never present in a pure state, but always appear in the guise of a style. When the guises belong to styles and traditions which are foreign to us, there is the danger that these principles can remain hidden from us because of the strangeness of the form which contains them. When the guises are familiar to us, it is this very familiarity which weakens our attention.
    An actor/dancer’s first days of apprenticeship are decisive. It is on this threshold that the principles of scenic presence meet. The scenic presence is the base on which actors and dancers build the relationship with the spectators and consequently a social presence. 

    PERIOD: 5-15 August 2020, Greccio (Rieti), Italy

    FEE: 1.150 (one thousand one hundred and fifty) Euros, inclusive board and lodging in shared rooms. For those accepted, the fee must be paid not later than 25th March 2020 

    DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: 28 February 2020. Answers to applications will be given not later than 10 March 2020
