Movement for Actors / Acting for Dancers

6-10 January 2025 | Berlin, Germany

The international workshop by NIPAI, based on the Ostrenko Brothers' method, is designed for dancers, choreographers, actors, directors, circus artists, and other performers. The in-class session is intended for strong, disciplined professionals and pre-professionals who are ready to fully engage from start to finish. This multicultural, and multidisciplinary program caters to those focused on the "movement part" of performance, and is ideal for creators seeking tools, approaches, and methods to create physical performances in any genre.

What is the curriculum?

It focuses on using the body expressively, blending physical actions with emotion, and experimenting with new performance styles. The curriculum includes:

  • Improvisation and spontaneity - as a tool for rehearsals and making a performance.

  • Learning to use the body expressively and effectively in performance.

  • Techniques to seamlessly blend physical actions with emotional expression.

  • Ensemble building and creating performance pieces in limited rehearsal time;

  • Movement training, floor-work, and animal technique.

  • Physical Theatre through a prism of traditional Theatre school and contemporary European approaches.
