Description: 

A Method for the Actor’s Self-prepration

7 weekly Saturday online group sessions plus 2 one-to-one coachings
with Christine Schmalor

THE VERTICAL OF THE ROLE is already a classic in European theatre.

At the centre of the method is a very practical aim: the self-preparation of the role. The actor becomes the author of the role and thus the encounter with the director on the film set or on the first day of rehearsals in the theatre takes place at eye level. Furthermore, the Vertical of the Role points the way to the philosophical-spiritual core of the character and challenges actors to act as independent artists.

This online course consists of 7 joint meetings for the different steps of the work. Each session has 3 hours, which allows for a lot of practical exercises, experiments, individual trial and error, exchange and feedback. At the end, you will create a Vertical - a monologue made of many findings and facets, which can be realised on stage. During the course, you will get individual support in 2 one-to-one coaching sessions: with further exercises, feedback, hints for the composition of the vertical, in short, with a personal guidance of the process.

The e-pub version of Jurij Alschitz "The Vertical of the Role" is included in the course fee.

Ritual Performance - Dionysus and The Bacchae

Type:

Country:

City:

Description: 

Course for actors, performers, directors, teachers with Dimitris Tsiamis

"Art and ritual, from the depths of antiquity, are inextricably linked. In contemporary theatre we observe a re-approach of the ritual through performances that seek a more substantial connection with the Other and the Unknown, focusing on the transformative and transcendental character of the artistic experience."
Dimitris Tsiamis

How familiar are we and how well do we know Dionysus, the God of Theater? Dionysus, the youngest and most famous Olympian god, the God with the dozens of names (Bacchus, Bromios, Eleuthereus, etc.) and the countless appearances (God of wine and ecstasy, god of fruitfulness and vegetation, etc.) is also the most enigmatic. Which versions of Dionysus do we meet in Euripides’ Bacchae and how much does the tragedy help us to understand him? To what extent could the understanding of Dionysus mean a deeper understanding of Theater?

In Euripides’ Bacchae, the arrival of Dionysus does not project a world “like a fairy tale” but a primitive world in which the forms of every creative and destructive element are revealed. Dionysus asks us to acknowledge his divine existence and to follow him even if we have not understood him. He introduces us to his ceremonies and cults so as the City can benefit from them. He punishes the political power – the tyrants – who do not honor him.

Continuing the line of online courses on the relationship between Ritual and Theater the aim of the course is to introduce the participants to the myth and spirit of Dionysus, as well as to Euripides tragedy of the Bacchae that – more than any other Greek tragedy – has been for a long time the focus of an intense interpretative argument. We will approach the Bacchae of Euripides through the principles of Ritual Performance practice and we will investigate practically – as a ritual – the arrival of Dionysus, his entry on stage and his first and so decisive monologue in the play, which announces the mysterious and contradictory elements of his nature.

Five Essentials for Directing

Directors ask actors to trust them. As artists we should not be afraid to take risks, but as directors we have an enormous responsibility – towards art and towards our actors. The greatest happiness is to create works together – and this process lies in the hands of the director. When it happens, we speak of mastery. There is no recipe for this, but there are professional ways to get there. This course invites you to do so, with 5 topics for 5 meetings over two days each. You can attend one or all of them:

Meeting one. Energy – a matter of life (18/19 May)

Meeting two. Composition – the road of life (25/26 May)

Meeting three. The space of events (1/2 June)

Meeting four. The director’s text analysis (8/9 June)

The Craft of Directing 1 - The Art of Composition

Type:

Notification of expiration: 
Description: 

Course for emerging and experienced directors - Part 1

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.

3 online sessions of 3 hours
If you cannot attend one of the sessions, you can watch it online until the next one.
