ANALYSIS OF DRAMATIC TEXT

Teachers:
doc. Ján Štrbák,
PhDr. Tomáš Surý, ArtD.

The students analyse key dramatic texts of world and Slovak drama, acquire the basic knowledge of composition, genres and techniques of dramaturgy, examine the possibilities of producing the text in the theatre and are given an overview of various possibilities of analysing dramatic texts. They are taught how to deal with the analysis, formulate basic dramatic situations and the motivation of characters, and how to anchor the work in time and space. The students are led to understand the structure of text, compose and write its analysis and subsequently interpret dramatic text. The main aim of this subject is to reflect on the visual and scenographic solutions after the previous complex analysis of dramatic text.

HISTORY OF CLOTHING

Teacher:
Mgr. art. Eva Hasalová

This course aims to provide the students with a comprehensive overview of clothing in different historical periods, to trace the changes and origins of the culture of clothing in historical styles. The students are led to recognise reasons for clothing and fashion, and view clothing as an expression of societal, social, national and mental differentiations. A series of lectures on the history of clothing provides the students with the basic information on artistic transformations of clothing. They learn to perceive clothing in wider cultural and historical contexts. Theory is combined with practice: visits to museums, to the textile depository of the Slovak National Museum – the Museum of History (they can see historical artefacts, gain hands-on experience in materials, styles, cuts, accessories and so on).

THEATRICAL SCENERY PRODUCTION

Teachers:
doc. Ing. Viliam Gruska,

The students are introduced to the basics of orthogonal depiction of simple objects made of wood and metal, and to the principles of preparing documentation in drawings with focus on theatrical scenery. Wood is understood as an elementary material, and they learn about its sources, processing, use, behaviour and treatment. They are encouraged to search in the real environment and literature for the architectural elements and their arrangement with respect to materials, historical periods, social environments: fences – doors – gates – sketches in 1:50 scale. The students make drawings after a sketch or photograph of the chair used for its production.
They focus on and provide the production documentation of the element after reality – the entrance gate. The students find information in literature and make a list of all basic elements of stairs, staircases and balustrades with respect to different materials, historical periods and social environments.

Workshop svetelného dizajnu

s lektorkou Pascale Bongiovanni

Organizátor: Anténa, sieť pre nezávislú kultúru
Termín: 3. – 5. 2. 2017 (začiatok v piatok o 17:00, koniec v nedeľu o 18:00)
Miesto: Záhrada CNK, Banská Bystrica
Poplatok za workshop: 50,- / 40,- €

Tento víkendový workshop nebude zameraný výhradne na techniku, ale predovšetkým na výskum fyzikality a estetiky svetla. Budeme sa zaoberať zmenami tela vo svetle, pokusmi, ako ho urobiť starším v plnom osvetlení, ako rozpohybovať to, čo je v realite statické. Pokúsime sa zmeniť pohľad na svetelné zdroje tak, aby sa stali hercami / ľuďmi, zvieratami, robotmi. Je to ako hľadanie významu poézie a braku za hranicami svetla.
