International Multidisciplinary Workshop

Trebnitz Castle - Germany  |   20 - 26 August 2020


This One Week intensive training is designed as the multidisciplinary intensive lab with participation and practice together with performers from different techniques and countries.


Students will be acquainted with training methods suitable for both actors and dancers, and rehearsing methods formed on the base of Russian Theatre Tradition, including "Physical Action" of Stanislavsky, "Psychological Gesture" of M. Chekhov and Meyerhold's "Biomechanics".  The core of this workshop is the investigation of the relationship in practice between the theatre director and the performer; the development of this relationship to the particular results. 


The program includes intensive practical training, lectures, and discussion forums under the guidance of the theatre director, choreographer and teacher Sergei Ostrenko.


Ostrenko will also introduce you to 

  • the approaches to work with actors on movement, and working with dancers on text, which helps each performer to make their performances more alive; 

  • the method of psycho-physical approach to performers training;

  • the method of active analysis of the play; 

  • the method of working on the text with actors and dancers. 

The workshop is highly recommended for those who are interested in learning about ensemble building, directing, structuring the rehearsal process, to clarify and hone what they already know and to get exposed to new techniques and methodologies, and ultimately, to network with practitioners from different countries and establish future creative partnerships with like-minded people. 

All students enrolling in this intensive One-Week Workshop should be aware that this is an introductory course. The limitations of a one-week course should be apparent, given that many people spend years studying and perfecting the craft.

The workshop working language is English.

There are several scholarships available, check>
