PHYSICAL ACTION ON STAGE
6-day International Workshop
26-31 August, 2019
Berlin - Germany
The international program aims at practicing theatre directors, choreographers and performing arts practitioners who are interested in practical investigations of performance making and physical theater.
This workshop is specifically designed to prepare participants for professional practice in a short time, both within the educational context and within the professional development of performer.
The workshop is open to practicing theatre directors, choreographers and performing arts practitioners who are interested to acquire tools necessary for director's to create contemporary productions through a practical investigation of the performance making process, actors training and ensemble building.
Performers will practically explore:
- how to build up images and characters playing with physical language of movement, relationships with space and partners;
- how to connect isolated elements into the whole performance fragments;
- how to unfold the actor’s creative nature and freedom in improvisation and spontaneity in the rehearsal process and the training.
This workshop is a simple way that can help you formulate your personal unique approach to work with actors and dancers on performance production, through the intensive practical training based on the Ostrenko Brothers Method of performer's physical training and rehearsal.
Students will be introduced to Meyerhold's "Biomechanics", M.Chekhov's "Psychological Gesture" and Stanislavsky's "Physical Action", with experienced professional practitioners, experts in performing arts pedagogy, directing and practice in multicultural groups and multidisciplinary projects - Ostrenko Brothers.
The working language is English.
