THEATRE LABORATORY 2022-23
Who am I? Who are we? What is a "we"? Although these questions sound very philosophical, they actually arise in many familiar situations.
This theatre laboratory will be a journey of discovery and creation guided by these questions. In the protected and magical space of the laboratory, participants will have the opportunity to explore them both individually and in groups.
The lab is open to participants of all ages (18+). Having at least one previous experience in the performative field (dance, music, theater, etc.) is recommended, but not necessary.
The Lab will take place at the Espace Pôle Sud à Lausanne
Free trial lessons on Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 October (7-9 PM)!
We will generally meet once a week from November 2022 until the end of March 2023

2021-22 THEATRE WORKSHOP SERIES
For the 2021-22 season, Sarvàn Teater organised "Le Chantier de l'Acteur", a series of workshops exploring the physical foundations of acting.
During each workshop, we worked on a different aspect of the art of the actor, from the use of space to physical improvisation, from the embodiment of a text to the use of theatre masks.
More than 15 participants with various levels of experience and from all over Switzerland attended one or more of the workshops. Thanks to each and every one of you!
Below are some pictures from our last workshop "En Masque !" which took place on Sunday 22 May 2022.
THEATRE RESIDENCY AT THE GROTOWSKI INSTITUTE - JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2022
In January and February 2022, Michele has been artist-in-residence at the Instytut Grotowskiego in Wroclaw (Poland), as part of the Institute's training and residency program for individual artists.
Michele's project aimed at exploring the troubled relationship between rationality and spirituality in the context of the human search for knowledge. During this exploration, textual and figurative sources from popular science books, as well as poems, religious songs and interviews to astronauts became sources of inspiration to develop performative materials through physical and vocal improvisations.
On February 10th, the result of this work was presented for the first time with the provisional title "From the closed world to the infinite universe: a journey of knowledge" at the Na Grobli Studio in Wroclaw.
Tutor of the residency: Kamila Klamut (Zar Teatr)
Costumes and artistic advice: Stefania Casiraghi
Stage design and technical advice: Francesco Zenoni

SARVÀN TEATER LAUNCH EVENT IN LAUSANNE - MAY 2021
"Sculpteurs des Métaphores", Sarvàn Teater's first theatre workshop in Lausanne, took place at the Espace PÔLE SUD on May 22-23 2021.
Participants joined a theatre training aimed at reawakening the body, exploring its creative potential, and learning how to control and guide it.
After experimenting with several physical improvisation exercises and games, they built a sequence of physical actions and used it to start working on a monologue or a poem.
