This course integrates practice and theory in a comprehensive programme that emphasises critical inquiry in art practice. The curriculum will help you develop your practice and research in a series of lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and off-site visits.

The course addresses our concepts of art, how they are being transformed and the problems of making art in the broader context of social conflict. The curriculum surveys the histories and discourses of contemporary art, demystifies the art world and provides multiple entry points into critical theory. The programme fosters collaborative study and provides practical tools in workshops and group feedback sessions.

By the end of the course participants will have a critical awareness of contemporary art, with a road map and toolbox of resources for their continuing practice and the confidence to pursue it independently.

Solo - the devised Monologue

Share

Type:

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.

Renaissance of the Dialogue - Dialogical Principles

Share

Type:

Description: 

Christine Schmalor
Course for actors with 6 sessions of 2 hours on
Friday 28 May | Tuesday 01 June 2021 | Friday 04 June 2021 | Tuesday 08 June | Friday 11 June | Tuesday 15 June |2021
always at 18:00 – 20:00 UTC+2 | Berlin time

With this seminar I would like to invite you to discover the beauty of dialogue.

For many years we have been seeing mainly monologues on stage, even though many actors are on stage together. We are talking about an age of individualism, in the meantime also about the selfi-generation. The desirable insight “being enough yourself” turns into an inability to communicate, which in turn has become a major theme on stage. The issue of monological existence is influencing the practice at large. Playwrights and authors stopped writing dialogues; directors and actors stopped practicing the art of dialogue. How long is this to continue? Is it not the task of artists to reveal alternatives to reality? Is it not much more interesting to develop thoughts and insights together?

It is time to rediscover and revive the art of dialogue. Especially in times of physical isolation, dialogue is the path to freedom. The stage, once the birthplace of dialogue, calls for a renaissance and rediscovery of the most beautiful ability of human beings – spiritual exchange. More, we are speaking about energy-flow. Possible at the computer? Let’s try it out. Digital media in particular not only requires a completely new approach, but also enables new dimensions and forms of playing with the dialogical principle.

The seminar begins by exploring various forms and principles of dialogue in art. We need the dialogue with the Dialogue. The wisdom of the Dialogue might help us to discover a new potential for artistic and personal development. The moment I open my shell I expose myself to the risk – of losing or winning. Without opening-up a dialogue is not possible and without risk there is no artistic life.
