International Multidisciplinary Workshop
Berlin - Germany | 09 - 14 April 2020
The workshop offers a stimulating environment in which students are able to develop their own movement skills as well as to learn how to direct movement in the performance piece.
Students may expect to encounter different movement and directing techniques varying from the principles of traditional theatres to modern approaches. Practical sessions are designed to enhance skills as both a movement teacher and movement director.
Methods of Stanislavsky, Meyerhold and M.Chekhov, Meyerhold's Biomechanics Etudes, Tai-chi for performers, 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.
Participants will practically explore:
how to foster connection and cohesion among performers and guide them in the creative process;
research the connection between physical action and voice, gesture, movement, dance and word;
explore performer's physicality as the key to form, style, atmosphere and
the ways of building up the scene composition and performance atmosphere of the performance;
approaches to develop character and images through movement and improvisation;
how to encourage performers' relation with artistic space, freedom in improvisation and spontaneity;
approaches to unfolding the actor’s creative nature and mounting contemporary professional performances.
The program includes intensive practical training, lectures, and discussion forums under the guidance of the theatre director, choreographer and teacher Sergei Ostrenko.
