Movement: Directing/Teaching Lab
 
 

August 15 - 21, 2018 

The international program aims at performance and movement practitioners from all over the world interested in movement directing and teaching.

The workshop is open to actors and dancers interested to expand and diversify their professional vocabulary, instructors who work with actors, practitioners from sport and holistic mind-body practices interested to improve their understanding of practical and theoretical aspects of movement in contemporary performance.

This course offers a special vocational teaching in the field of movement for actors and production practice for movement directors. 

There are opportunities for the development of individual movement skills and their application to the work with actors.

"ArtUniverse, IUGTE and the  Ostrenko brothers are doing a brave thing. In a world of increasing materialism they are investing in the technologies of the imagination and the human heart. They are connecting international dancers, actors and  live performers though the universal language of the moving body. Through their work;  
‘originates a spontaneous blossom in each artist’..." 
Jack Beglin, Ireland

"We had enchanting group of people, all coming from different countries, cultures, speaking different languages and still working together.

in appropriate measure and at the appropriate time. We enjoyed a rare experience of community during our time together.
This, combined with the accepting and open teaching style of the course teachers and the peaceful, relaxing environment that Retzhof castle provided, more than fulfilled my wish for a supportive learning environment and group"
