International Acting and Movement Workshop

25-29 August 2025 | Berlin, Germany

The international workshop, based on the Ostrenko Brothers' method, is designed for professionals and pre-professionals—dancers, choreographers, actors, directors, circus artists, and other performers. The curriculum includes exercises on improvisation, space exploration, and partner interaction, methods for ensemble building and enhancing physicality, approaches for analyzing plays and integrating movement with text, and exposure to Meyerhold's "Biomechanics," M. Chekhov's "Psychological Gesture," and Stanislavsky's "Physical Action."

What is the curriculum?

The "Body and Emotion in Acting" is a multidisciplinary intensive workshop that emphasizes practical participation with performers from various techniques and countries, reflecting NIPAI's core principles of multidisciplinarity and multiculturality.

The curriculum includes:

  • Various exercises focusing on improvisation, space exploration, and partner interaction, progressing from simple to complex.

  • Methods for building ensembles and enhancing performers' physicality and creativity.

  • Approaches for analyzing plays, working on text with dancers and actors, and integrating movement and text to make performances more dynamic.

  • Exposure to Meyerhold's "Biomechanics," M. Chekhov's "Psychological Gesture," and Stanislavsky's "Physical Action."

This workshop is ideal for professional artists seeking to improve physicality in acting, ensemble building, rehearsal structuring, and networking with practitioners from different countries. Participants will gain exposure to new techniques and methodologies under the guidance of the experienced Ostrenko Brothers.
