6-days International Workshop / Residency
24-30 April, 2020
Laubegg Castle - Austria

The international program designed for performance makers, directors, choreographers and those who work directly with performers for professional stage. It fits for already professionals as well as those who just entered this field.

24 - 30 April, 2020
Laubegg Castle, Germany

The program is designed for performance makers with experience of performance/show production. You can be director, choreographer, acting coach, movement director, stage combat instructor, dramatist or performer who is keen in learning about the movement in performance.

The main question which will be explained practically, through the series of technique and improvisational exercises, is how to work with actors in order to help them build their movement, body angles and body placement in performance in accordance with their characters.

The workshop will be beneficial for those who work with both dancers and actors. The techniques which you will explore will open you new approaches of working on movement for actors, and working on monologue and dialogue for dancers though technique of psychological gesture, method of physical action and theatre biomechanics.

Students will explore practically:

"Theatre Biomechanics"of Vsevolod Meyerhold, "Psychological Gesture" of M. Chekhov, "Physical Action" of K. Stanislavski, training by the method of improvisation, dramaturgy in movement, scene composition and more.

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.

The Director and The Actor
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.

During the workshop participants will become acquainted with Ostrenko's method of psycho-physical training and rehearsal, formed and inspired by the Russian Theatre Tradition.
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
emotional palette;
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.

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.

Tagungssprache: Englisch

"The Other Body?" ist eine eintägige Konferenz über Tanz und Rassismus. In Vorträgen und Panels sprechen Künstler*innen, Tanzpädagog*innen und Zuschauer*innen über Etikettierung, Objektivierung und Entmenschlichung des tanzenden Körpers unter Berücksichtigung gesellschaftspolitischer Identitäten und aus der Perspektive der Entkolonialisierung. Im Zentrum der Konferenz steht die Analyse rassistischer Strategien in der Geschichte der Tanzpädagogik und in den ästhetischen Traditionen des choreografierten Tanzes. Drei Sessions bieten Raum für Diskussionen, ein abschließender Slot eröffnet die Möglichkeit des performativen Ausdrucks.

English version:

“The Other Body?" is a conference for dance artists and educators on the issue of dance and racism. It is an attempt to let artists, educators and spectators speak out against the labelling, objectification and de-humanisation of the dancing body, while considering the transformations of socio-political identities and the perspective of decolonisation. Central to the one-day conference is the analysis of the strategies of racism within the history of dance pedagogy and the aesthetic traditions of choreographed dance. Three sessions offer room for discussion, and a final slot opens up the possibility for performative expression.

Mit/with: Nora Amin, Josep Caballero Garcia, Michael Freundt, Nina Hänel, Holger Hartung, Tümay Kilicel, Hannah Ma, Amelie Mallmann, Zwoisy Mears-Clarke, Sandra Noeth, Livia Patrizi, Mey Seifan, Anna Volkland
