Ostrenko Lab Program

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, principles of Meyerhold’s Biomechanics, 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.
