The program includes Intensive Physical Theatre Workshop, lectures and forums

with world-known teachers - Ostrenko Brothers

and the program of IUGTE Annual International Conference with performing arts academics and practitioners from all around the world!


The workshop programme is focused on Ostrenko brothers approach of actor’s training, relying on the Russian Theatre Tradition, as well as the newest experiments in performing arts. Performer's physicality in the methods of K.Stanislavsky, M.Chekhov, Vs.Meyerhold's Biomechanics, Tai-chi for performers, training by method of improvisation, scene composition from an exercise to a performance. These are some of the elements uniquely transformed and combined in Ostrenko's teaching system to suit the needs of contemporary performers, directors and teachers.


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

Practical sessions develop in the form of various exercises which progress from simple to compound. The group gradually proceeds to group improvisations and structures. Every day sets a spectrum of advanced creative tasks, developing the preceding steps. Through the system of consecutive exercises, the group establishes a common language and trust, an ability to collaborate and create together.



Practical workshops, presentations, works in progress, lectures and discussions with performing arts teachers from all around the world. Check the conference program here...
