research overview

  • Tamara Meneghini's research is focused mainly on performance practices, as professional actor/creator who devises new performance-related work or as an actor/performer working from established texts for theatre. She enjoys most the energy and complicity of collaborating with experienced playwrights/directors when developing new material. The bulk of her work pertains to the relationship between the actor/performance, actor/acting instrument - how the acting instrument (body/voice) is utilized best to communicate truthfully in performance. She has studied mask work extensively with some of the most highly regarded master mask trainer/teachers, including Antonio Fava, Joan Schirle and Giovanni Fusetti. She continues to be extremely interested in creating new ways to tell story utilizing a fully engaged and engaging physical theatre approach.
