The international program aims at performance and movement practitioners from all over the world interested in acting, movement and physical theater.

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 performer.

This workshop offers special introduction session to the field of movement for actors and production practice for movement directors.

​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.

Practical sessions are designed to enhance the understanding of performance making and rehearsal processes, and skills in pedagogy.

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

Students will be introduced to Vsevolod Meyerhold’s “Biomechanics”, Michael Chekhov’s “Psychological Gesture”, and Konstantin Stanislavski’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.

Ostrenko Brothers Method

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 Vsevolod Meyerhold’s “Biomechanics”, Konstantin Stanislavski’s “Physical Action”, Michael Chekhov’s “Psychological Gesture”, and elements from modern techniques.
