Monday 24 February 2014, 06:30pm – 08:30pm

 locandina-la-voce-del-corpoAn invigorating and interactive workshop through the art of gesticulation, led by film director, Luca Vullo: a unique opportunity to learn how to gesticulate and ‘speak’ Italian through the particular code of body language. The director will also introduce his docu-film, La voce del corpo (www.lavocedelcorpo.com)
and offer a behind-the-scenes discussion on his innovative work following the 30-minute screening, concluding with a Q&A session with the director.

The movie, followed by the workshop, has been presented all around Europe, in the US and Australia, and has been a great success.

In UK has been screened at King’s College, UCL, Bristol and at the National Theatre, where director Richard Eyre was staging Liolà by Pirandello. Vullo was asked to led a workshop on Sicilian gestuality for the Irish actors. So it would be really interesting for the ‘Italian Society Theatre Group’, that is now working on Pirandello, to attend.

Vullo’s work has been praised by the Guardian, BBC, (http://gu.com/p/3h2mg), Corriere della Sera in Italyhttp://www.corriere.it/esteri/13_novembre_18/italiano-che-insegna-stranieri-come-si-fa-gesticolare-69af669a-5051-11e3-b334-d2851a3631e3.shtml, and he has been hosted by Italian National Television (RAI 3) : http://youtu.be/PVqDKBSd75w.
