Course on monologues

Categories: Events and Teacher at Companies, Schools.

The monologues arise at every moment. On our walks and trips we dialogue with ourselves in order to elucidate the mysteries posed by the day. This internal dialogue, this andante soliloquy, can take shape on the scene through the tools of theater.

Words, gestures and actions allow us to transport the stage this look inside, turning introspection into a complex and brilliant theatrical genre: the theatrical monologue.
