Movement: Directing/Teaching Lab
 
 

August 22 - 28, 2017 

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. 

Tradition, experience, eclecticism and innovation summarize the understanding of movement training for theatre. This unique course was created in this spirit.

Practical sessions are designed to enhance the skills of movement teachers and movement directors.
Students may expect to encounter the techniques by the outstanding movement practitioners, such as Meyerhold, M.Chekhov, Barba and Grotowski.

The course is taught by the experienced professional practitioners, experts in movement pedagogy, movement direction and movement research in intercultural groups and projects.

The working language is English

discussions are enlightening and informative. I would highly recommend this workshop to any artist interested in learning about Meyerhold’s Biomechanics, ensemble 
building, directing, physical scoring and vocal scoring in the rehearsal process and how to implement it in rehearsal"

"I was thrilled by the way in which I encountered each member of the group in the flow of the exercises and how I found myself excited by the special connection I made with certain participants...I have made lasting friendships and potential future creative partnerships that have been earthed in unforced encounters on the workshop floor in a flow controlled by an expert helmsman"
