February 21-26, 2017


This residential program is open to dancers, choreographers, actors and contemporary circus performers working in various genres and styles, interested in the practical creative research of Physical Theatre as a bold, vibrant and multidimensional approach to contemporary performance. The school provides the fascinating and inspiring encounter of artists from diverse artistic backgrounds and techniques; creates the platform for exchange, network and collaboration in multicultural and multilingual artistic environment and encourages the artists to search for the universal “intercultural” language in contemporary performance.  

The Lab is a great opportunity to approach a unique methodological and practical material that will enrich your professional skills and will offer you the possibility to share an intense creative experience at a global level.

The programme includes intensive practical training and discussions guided by Sergei Ostrenko - Russian theatre director, choreographer and teacher, and Gennady Ostrenko - choreographer, movement director, theater artist, designer, painter. 

Participants will research the connection between physical action and voice, gesture, movement, dance and word, explore performer's physicality as the key to form, style, atmosphere and emotional palette, learn to build up the composition of the form and the language of the artistic space of the performance, gain helpful practical tools and valuable tips for mounting a contemporary physical theatre performance stepping beyond the limits of text-based acting, acquire a reliable practical toolkit for creating contemporary professional productions in limited rehearsal time.
