Improving the organization of the neck, shoulders and jaw.
Releasing tension, pain, blockages.

I am teaching online Feldenkrais lesson series focused on the head, neck, jaw, face, and eyes.
Movement patterns, tightness and unease in these parts are usually all linked together and are very common. They can be often experienced as pain, TMJ issues, headaches, stress, restricted breathing or bad posture.

You will learn how to improve the use of this area of the body and integrate it with the rest of yourself.

It can have an impact on your well being by:

– Reducing chronic muscle tension
– Improving flexibility and range of motion
– Completing tasks with less effort
– Improving sleep and breathing
– Reducing stress and anxiety
– Improving balance, coordination and posture
– Increasing athletic performance

 

How does it work?
Restructure your neuromuscular patterns to move without pain.

Classes are designed as movement inquiry. You will explore how you use and experience your body, and how you can improve it.
I will guide you verbally in slow, gentle movement sequences. This process intends to change deep unconscious movement habits, that are causing unnecessary tension in the body, and to create space for more efficient use of self.
During the class, you will be mainly moving in laying position or sitting on the floor and following my verbal guidance. There is no need to look at the screen, and your attention is free to focus on your own experience.

Solo - the devised Monologue

Share

Description: 

Christine Schmalor
Online intensive-course: 26. September + 17. Oktober + 31. Oktober 2021
from 15-18:00 plus individual Coaching

The SOLO course consists of 3 joint meetings with 3 hours each and a one-hour personal coaching session the following week; dates by arrangement. Each meeting has a clearly outlined theme, so you can choose to attend all or just one. After each meeting you have the opportunity to deepen the topic and apply it to your own project in the personal coaching session with me.

SOLO 1 – Above All (26. September)
FINDING my theme – OPENING all dimensions of a theme – GIVING VOICE to my theme

SOLO 2 – The creative mind flow (17. Oktober)
Intertextuality – game and chaos – THINK BIG!

SOLO 3 – Composition (31. Oktober)
Building your fundament – your compass – your ARTISTIC LANGUAGE

This intensive workshop supports artists who are creating a monologue, monodrama, solo performance or their own devised theatre evening. Whatever you want to call it, you need a roadmap for your steps. Simple practical advice can be found everywhere. But then the journey into the unknown begins. How do I structure my own artistic path? What do I need to keep in mind? What tasks should I set myself so that I can really break new ground?

You might have already a vague subject or a collection of artistic material, but how to work with it? We will touch the following subjects:

- The artistic work with a theme and its practical implementation.
- Steps to unfold your creative mind-flow.
- The process of creation through intertextuality: discovering new patterns of speech and thought that, in particular, inspire playfulness.
- The art of composition as the basis and compass of designing a monoperformance.

This intensive course is aimed at theatre artists who are planning their own project or are already in the process and could use support.
After the first course in June 2021, which was enthusiastically received but proved far too short, I have decided to expand the programme and offer three meetings instead of one, each with more practical exercises to try out immediately together.

My System of Stanislavsky - A Dialogue in nine Episodes

Share

Type:

Description: 

The Online Theatre Academy, offers a unique one-year programme with Jurij Alschitz and Olga Lapina – teacher and master student: two generations of Stanislavsky’s disciples explore the legacy of Konstantin Sergeyevich Stanislavsky and its relevance for today’s theatre practice in a course of nine profound interactive meetings.

Dr. Jurij Alschitz was educated at Moscow State University in the class of Professor Yury Malkovsky, a direct student of Stanislavsky, and Dr. Olga Lapina graduated from the class of second-generation Stanislavsky’s student Professor  Oleg Kudryashov in Moscow University of Theatre Arts (GITIS). Therefore, they both share a deep practical and theoretical knowledge of the system from within the teacher-to-student lineage, and at the same time they both research the heritage of Stanislavsky from the point of view of its relevance to the modern theatrical reality and question the ways in which practical application of the system can be turned into useful and creative tools, rather than indisputable theatrical religion.

On one hand, familiarity with the basics of the Stanislavsky system is a necessary step in the training of all professional theatre artists – actors, directors, and theatre teachers. Stanislavsky’s discoveries in the field of theatrical pedagogy – formulating a system of elements of creativity, discovering the actor’s methods of self-preparation, the method of physical actions – lay the foundation of theatrical art and constitute the ABC of every theatre professional. On the other hand, Stanislavsky often repeated in his writings that actors and teachers must re-train every 5 years; the speed of transformation of modern times invites the artist to constantly update his art even in a shorter time frame. Every system has to be tested by the movement of time, and none of the previous knowledge, even the most conventional, should be taken without critical mind, artistic curiosity and creative investigation.

"We need new Stanislavskys – teachers who are able to combine artistic and methodological thinking while creating their own system – and who are ready to make radical changes at any moment to improve their art."

Jurij Alschitz and Olga Lapina believe, that their mission is to impart knowledge of the system to a new generation, but they relate past experience and contemporary theatrical thought critically, discovering unconventional and creative contemporary applications of what might be known as traditional elements of Stanislavsky system. With this course  they want to encourage theatre practicioners to develop their one system. 

They will speak about the most fundamental themes of K.Stanislavsky’s legacy, such as action, conflict, event, supertask, given circumstances, method of physical actions, improvisation, ethics, ensemble, as well as the phenomena of actor/role and artistic individuality,  hereby giving a notion of the system in general.

In each meeting they will investigate the topics both theoretically and practically, providing with a broad spectrum of knowledge and practical inspiration to use the system creatively in your own artistic everyday life.
1. Lecture: the classic definition and approach
2. Dialogue: how do we understand it today?
3. Practice: implementation and relevance for modern theatre

This course is an invitation to EVERYONE who wants to know more about the various facets of the great master Konstantin Sergeyevich Stanislavsky. Below you will find a thematic overview. Each session can be visited and booked individually. The artistic director reserves the right to intuitively mix topics in order to reveal the complexity of the system.

Sharing Secrets - The Art of Composition

Share

Type:

Description: 

Jurij Alschitz

With the Sharing Secrets series of the Online Theatre Academy, theatre practitioners have the unique opportunity to learn from the life-long international experience of a Master in theatre.

The Art of Composition is the art of construction - of the role, the performance, or a play. It is the art of the director to link scenes, word images, emotions, themes, light, sound, etc. and to connect them in the most diverse ways. It is the art of combination, of leading and subordinating, of harmony and chaos. Montage shows itself to be an important part of the art of directing. Where should one start? What is important, what is not? On the basis of which definition of composition do I ask my questions? Are you aware of the difference between composition and the structure of a performance?

Composition is a sort of artistic language - this language is understood without words. The art of composition is particularly important for the modern language of the stage, because it shows the clarity of directing as if under a burning glass. It is compass that gives orientation to everyone - the artists on stage and the audience. 

Before you begin with a composition, you must know its laws and way of life. Composition in contemporary theatre is not just a technical form, but also a living one: it breathes, speaks to us and conveys the content of the play and the idea. The largest percentage of the success of a performance is based on a brilliant, dynamic composition of the director.

With this practice-oriented course, you can expect to learn a number of things beyond general school knowledge: about the many different types of composition, about secrets of montage and energy management, and how to approach theatre from a compositorial point of view.

This course will be held in 3 zoom meetings of 2 hours each. In case you miss a session, you have the opportunity to watch the recording in the two following days.
