International Physical Theatre Workshop
January 3 - 9, 2019
Is any Theatre Physical?... 
Any kind of theatre is physical by its essence. 
It speaks universal language. 
The creation comes from the actor's body. 
The actor’s body is involved in creating physical space for the spectator. 
The actor's body is at the centre of the storytelling process. 
What is Physical Theatre Today?...
International Physical Theatre workshop is specifically designed to prepare participants for a professional practice, both within the educational context and within the professional development of performers.
Primarily aimed at high-level dancers, choreographers, directors and actors who wish to extend their knowledge and skills through a practical research of:
  • how to tell story through dance and movement, performance and acting; 
  • how to be choreographer, coach, director of movement and dance; 
  • how to create ensemble and professional performance in a limited rehearsal time and many more.
Practical sessions are designed to enhance understanding of performance making and rehearsal processes, and skills in pedagogy. 
This workshop is a simple way that can help you formulate your personal unique approach to work with actors and dancers, through the intensive practical training based on the Ostrenko Brothers Method of performer's physical training and rehearsal.
Students may expect to encounter the techniques of such outstanding figures as V. Meyerhold, M. Chekhov, K. Stanislavski which got incorporated into the method by Ostrenko.
The course is taught by the experienced professional practitioners, experts in performing arts pedagogy, actors’ training, theatre directing and movement research in intercultural groups and projects.
