International Physical Theatre Lab
July 1 - 7, 2012
The program is designed for experienced dancers, choreographers, actors of physical theatre and contemporary circus performers - performing arts practitioners with professional stage experience working in various genres, techniques and styles, interested to find new international network opportunities and collaborators.
Intensive practical training guided by the Russian theatre director and teacher Sergei Ostrenko. The programme is focused on Ostrenko's method of actor’s training, which is formed and inspired by the Russian Theatre Tradition. Participants will practically explore physicality as the principal creative instrument, the key to form, style, atmosphere and emotional palette in contemporary performance, stepping beyond the limits of habitual text-based acting.
Performer's physicality in the methods of Stanislavsky, Meyerhold and M.Chekhov, Meyerhold's Biomechanics Etudes, Tai-chi for actors, Training by method of improvisation, scene composition from exercises to performance: these are some of the elements uniquely transformed and combined in Ostrenko's teaching system.
The Lab is a great opportunity to approach a unique methodological and practical material that will enrich your professional skills and will offer you the possibility to share an intense creative experience at a global level!
Moreover, the Lab opens the door towards the new collaboration project in Russia in autumn 2012 -
the six-week period of performance creation in a Russian repertory theatre together with Russian actors and performers from different countries!
