I feel a religious emotion when, while reading poetic works, I discover, beyond the virtues of fullness, harmony, and correctness, the initial vagueness of a germinating style, the first vague smile of a new young muse. It is the promise that the world will be increased for us.
José Ortega y Gasset
The performing arts are currently in a process of profound transformation. The public seeks unique, exclusive, unforgettable experiences … Artists, more than ever, must be able to adapt to different environments and develop very personal styles with their own, unique touch.
To that end, without neglecting the work of scenes and theatrical styles, we focus on training creators. The C.E.C. is an education that mixes areas such as physical theater, mask work, text analysis, and theatrical styles with other areas as diverse as architecture, movement, painting, site-specific creation…
We want to train actors and actresses, but not only as mere interpreters; rather, as creators capable of analyzing scenes and using distinct tools for each situation. Our intention is not to offer classically styled training, yet we will provide students the necessary tools to face any theatrical project.
We seek to train the actor-creator, capable of seeking out their sources of inspiration, recognizing the dynamics and the way to transpose them into a theatrical language through Movement and the use of Space. We give actors the ability to be self-sufficient in their work, whether for the creation of a character or for a scene or play.
