This workshop is specifically designed to prepare participants for professional practice in a short time, both within the educational context and within the professional development of a performer.

This workshop offers special sessions in the field of physical theatre, directing and universal training for performers of different genres. Practical sessions are designed to enhance the understanding of improvisation, performance making, rehearsal processes, and skills in pedagogy.

​The workshop is open to practitioners 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 workshop is a simple way that can help you formulate your personal unique approach to work with actors and dancers, through intensive practical training based on the Ostrenko Brothers Method of performer's physical training and rehearsal.

Students will be introduced to Meyerhold's "Biomechanics", M.Chekhov's "Psychological Gesture" and Stanislavsky's "Physical Action", with experienced professional practitioners, experts in performing arts pedagogy, directing and practice in multicultural groups and multidisciplinary projects - Ostrenko Brothers.

The working language is English.

The Ostrenko Brothers' Method is internationally renowned, from Russia to the USA, from Iceland to South Africa, from Canada to Australia, from Singapore to Italy and beyond.

The Ostrenko Brothers' Method is a systematic approach to performance, which generates innovative productions utilising concepts, ideas, and existing play-texts. It introduces some of the effective techniques and approaches towards contemporary performance practice in the context of the short rehearsal time and multicultural aspect of the creative team.

Ostrenko Brothers method offers the tools and support necessary for students to reach their full potential.

The programs aim to explore performer's physicality, step beyond the limits of text-based acting through the introduction of V. Meyerhold’s “Biomechanics”, K. Stanislavski's “Physical Action”, M. Chekhov’s “Psychological Gesture” and elements from modern techniques.
