Dramaturgy of Physical Action (6-days International Workshop) - 1-6 July, 2020 - Berlin, Germany

This international program is suitable for both, - choreographers who work mainly with movement, as well as for directors who work mainly with actors in physical or text-based performances.

The main focus of the program is to answer the crucial nowadays question is “How to enrich dance performances with psychological tension?” and “How the physicality in acting enriches drama performances?”. Probably, these are two most demanding and most interesting questions that modern directors and choreographers are facing.

The program is designed as a full-day workshop lab, where students will practically / physically explore different techniques which will help them to discover answers on these questions.

The course may be valuable to practitioners interested in the processes of creating contemporary dance, movement or physical theatre performance — particularly artists wondering what it might be like to collaborate with a dramaturg, and even, how to take the role of dramaturg by yourself.

In parallel, students will touch “Theatre Biomechanics” technique of Russian avant-gard theatre innovator V. Meyerhold, “Psychological Gesture” of M. Chekhov, the “Physical Action” of K. Stanislavski and several different techniques.

The working language is English.

The training is designed as the multidisciplinary intensive lab with participation and practice together with performers from different techniques and countries. Multidisciplinarity and multiculturality is one of the most important principles of our programs.

OSTRENKO BROTHERS METHOD

The Ostrenko Brothers’ Method is internationally renowned, from Russia to the USA, from Iceland to South Africa, from Canada to Australia, from Singapore to Italy and beyond.

The Ostrenko Brothers’ Method is a systematic approach to performance, which generates innovative productions utilising concepts, ideas, and existing play-texts. It introduces some of the effective techniques and approaches towards contemporary performance practice in the context of the short rehearsal time and multicultural aspect of the creative team.

Ostrenko Brothers method offers the tools and support necessary for students to reach their full potential.

The programs aim to explore performer’s physicality, step beyond the limits of text-based acting through the introduction of V. Meyerhold’s “Biomechanics”, K. Stanislavski’s “Physical Action”, M. Chekhov’s “Psychological Gesture” and elements from modern techniques.

TheatreCraft is the UK’s biggest free offstage theatre careers event for young people aged 16-30.

The annual, one-day event is aimed at young people interested in a career in theatre, in any non-performing role. Attended by approximately 1,000 young people from across the UK, the event is filled with exciting workshops, thought-provoking talks, Q&As, practical demonstrations, important careers advice and a vibrant Marketplace full of stands from top UK theatres and theatre-makers.

At TheatreCraft, people aged 16-30 can gain ideas and an understanding of what they can do next to further their interest and/or career in theatre, including training or further opportunities, and discover roles in the theatre industry that they never knew existed. The event aims to inspire the next generation of theatre-makers and build connections between the professionals in attendance and our young delegates.

Building on the success of the past thirteen events, this year TheatreCraft returns to the Royal Opera House following its stunning redevelopment, alongside partnerships with neighbouring West End theatres for additional workshops.
