CORE SUBJECTS

Puppetry scenography and technology


PUPPETRY SCENOGRAPHY AND TECHNOLOGY

Teachers:
PROF. ANNA CIGÁNOVÁ – PODOBOVÁ
ING. ARCH. MARKÉTA PLACHÁ
MGA. EVA FARKAŠOVÁ
MGA. PETER ČISÁRIK

The students acquire the knowledge of various forms and techniques of puppet material theatre and non-verbal stylised theatre: mime show, clowning, theatre of masks, abstract physical theatre. They accomplish and perform the staging in all its artistic components to create a coherent art form.

They study different materials and explore the possibilities of using them in the puppet theatre, as well as materials, objects and solid mass as art symbols and semantic elements in scenography. The original role of the object and material on stage and its role in the puppet theatre – creation of the artefact, puppet, scenery, props. They uncover the visual metaphor and modify objects and materials to create a new artistic statement.

Puppet theatre in “the shadow and light”, music as an image, a moving image.

  • Shadow theatre and its scenographic/material options (exercises with hands, the body, space, sound, light and with different materials)
  • Music in the puppet theatre, image accompanied by music, music accomplished by image
  • Creating the puppet as an art object

The students explore specific possibilities of various sources of light, materials and movements.

The theme of this course is based on the model of the “kindergarten play” as a specific genre. The “kindergarten play” in creative solutions urges the stage and costume designer to consider the possibilities and limitations of atypical non-theatrical spaces, schools, to minimise and vary scenic elements, to take into account effective storing of theatrical scenery due to its frequent transport. The artist aims to create a complete scenic design displaying artistic unity and comprehensive stylisation in view of the age of the audience.

PUPPETRY + PUPPETRY SCENOGRAPHY – THEATRE IN NON-THEATRE SPACE

Teachers:
KATARÍNA AULITISOVÁ,
ING. ARCH. MARKÉTA PLACHÁ

The course aims to create site-specific art reflecting a distinctive character of the site or an individual action set in its context. Artistic production is defined by space and space is fundamentally involved in its final form, not only visually but also dramaturgically.

The result is a performance or a happening that expresses one’s own emotions and the relation to a specific environment, its problems and milieu. Theatre in non-theatre provides the first contact with site-specific art. Work will be produced in all accessible environments – streets, churches, pubs, castles, cellars, old factories, parks, supermarkets … The students will move about these spaces, watch the atmosphere, listen to their rhythm, their speech and eventually use all the feelings and knowledge acquired, and transform them into a theatrical presentation. Emphasis is placed on creativity, improvisation and a variety of professional artists, directors and actors who work together on the same assignments and influence each other.

COSTUME IN PUPPETRY SCENOGRAPHY

Teachers:
PROF. ANNA CIGÁNOVÁ,
MGA. EVA FARKAŠOVÁ

The studio is a workshop enhancing creativity and skills associated with the reflection on the costume creation of puppetry scenography.

The actor-puppet relationship, their semantic transformation, doubling of the character, the costume as an artistic attribute of the stage. The costume composed as scenery and a tool joining mutual relationships with the figurative subject. The puppet and the figurative object, the mask connecting actors on stage.

The technological connection between the artistic solution and the technical functionality of costumes in favour of imagination of dramatic models.

PUPPETRY – SCENOGRAPHIC PROJECT

Teachers:
PROF. ANNA CIGÁNOVÁ
ING. ARCH. MARKÉTA PLACHÁ
MGA. EVA FARKAŠOVÁ

The students are provided with a general overview of the figurative theatre, its creative attributes and applications of the synthetic form of the modern theatrical genre. They analyse the text and develop their own concept of scenography, and then prepare it artistically, technically and technologically for presentation.

PUPPETRY – GRADUATION PROJECT

Teachers:
PROF. ANNA CIGÁNOVÁ
MGA. EVA FARKAŠOVÁ

The course aims to create scenography for the graduation production. It provides the students with a complex preparation of the staging – from the scenographic concept to production. The purpose of the course is to verify and use the knowledge and skills the students acquired while working on previous projects, and to apply them in the design and staging of the bachelor’s production.

STAGE PRACTICE

Teachers:
PROF. ANNA CIGÁNOVÁ,
MGA. EVA FARKAŠOVÁ,
MGA. PETER ČISÁRIK

The aim of stage practice is to apply acquired knowledge in the professional theatre with professional artists, to create productions from the first reading to opening night.

DRAWING AND PAINTING

Teacher:
MGR. ART. JOZEF KURINEC

The aim of the assignment is to understand the importance of proportional volumes and their relationships, for instance the construction of the human head, to start from their geometrical arrangement, to create volume with light and shadow as a preparation for painting. The assignment develops and supports the course on modelling. Part of the assignment is the study of anatomy, the knowledge of colour theory and its application in practice, the composition and construction of the picture, a broader range of technical and expressive resources, the ability to use adequate techniques, processes and materials in the process of creation.

MODELLING

Teacher:
MGR. ART. JOZEF KURINEC

The programme focuses on the acquisition of theoretical knowledge and artistic and technical skills and craftsmanship in working with materials, on understanding the importance of proportional volumes and their relationships in the construction of the human head, based on their geometrical arrangement. These skills are important in puppetry. The students are provided with a wider range of technical and expressive resources and the ability to use adequate methods and materials in the creative process. Three-dimensional expression is one of the essential communication tools of expression of the stage designer. The study is based on work in the studio. Assigned themes are subsequently connected with the course on drawing – painting. An important prerequisite is the knowledge of perspective, anatomy and drawing of the head following the course on drawing –painting. The aim of this course is the acquisition of skills and the mastery of work with the materials, which cannot be restored.

PUPPET TECHNOLOGY

Teacher:
MGA. MIROSLAV DUŠA

The aim of this course is to teach the students how to think in context: character, art form – design of puppets. To understand technology not as a primary option of the movements of puppets, but also as a secondary option, as a possibility of predetermining its character. To see a compromise between the idea and the possibility of production. To acquaint the students with all types of puppets and relevant scenes with exercises of technical drawings of skeletons of puppets and constructions of scenes.

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.

Masterclass Gemmy  Jackson,
production designer-ky Game of Thrones

Fest 2016 / 20. – 27.6.2016 / Portugalsko

Another big name confirmed for this year’s Training Ground.

Art director and production designer Gemma Jackson – who was nominated for an Oscar and BAFTA for her work in Finding Neverland (starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet) – is the most recent addition to the list of guest speakers that will attend and share their knowledge at FEST – Training Ground.

Having recently finished Guy Ritchie’s Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur – which stars Jude Law, Charlie Hunnam and Erica Bana – Jackson has worked with directors such as Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal), Mark Herman (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), Marc Forster (The Kite Runner), and is a frequent collaborator of director David Mamet (The Untouchables).

But Jackson has also lent her expertise to TV. She is well-known for her work on Game of Thrones’ seasons 1, 2 and 3: she was responsible for designing, building, and dressing the sets used in filming the series, including the Iron Throne itself and the sets for TV-history-bond episode “The Rains of Castamere”. For her work on the series, Jackson was awarded an Emmy for outstanding art direction and an Art Directors Guild Award for excellence in production design.

In 2008 Jackson worked as a production designer on the TV mini-series John Adams, which got her an Emmy award. Jackson’s most recently seen design is the disquieting environment for the TV series Fortitude (2015), staring Stanley Tucci.

This will surely be an excellent and insightful masterclass.
