International Physical Theatre Laboratory
16/05 – 24/05
Tuscany, Italy
The Lab is open to performers from different creative genres and techniques inspired by Physical Theatre as a bold, vibrant and multidimensional approach to contemporary theatre performance. The program is designed for experienced dancers, actors of physical theatre, contemporary circus performers, choreographers and directors – performing arts practitioners with professional stage experience working in various genres, techniques and styles – interested to find new international network opportunities and collaborators.

The Lab programme is focused on Ostrenko’s method of actor’s training, relying on the Russian Theatre Tradition and the newest experiments in performing arts. Performer’s physicality in the 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 to suit performers, directors and teachers contemporary needs.

Participants will practically explore performer’s physicality as the principal creative instrument, the key to form, style, atmosphere and emotional palette in contemporary performance, stepping beyond the limits of habitual text-based acting.

Practical sessions develop in the form of various exercises which progress from simple to compound. Gradually the group is proceeding to group improvisations and structures. Every day is setting advanced creative tasks, developing the preceding steps. Through the system of consecutive exercises the group is growing common language and trust, ability to collaborate and create together.

The Lab is a great opportunity to approach a unique methodological and practical material that will enrich your professional skills and will offer you the possibility to share an intense creative experience at a global level.
