The annual residential program is open to dancers, choreographers, actors and contemporary circus performers with professional stage experience 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.  
 
 
During the program participants will have opportunity to explore Ostrenko method of performer's physical training and rehearsalPerformer's physicality in the methods of Stanislavsky, Meyerhold and M.Chekhov, principles of Meyerhold's Biomechanics, Tai-chi for performers, training by method of improvisation, scene composition from exercises to performance: these are some of the elements uniquely transformed and combined in Ostrenko's teaching system.
 
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
 
Practical sessions develop in the form of various exercises which progress from simple to compound. Gradually the group proceeds to group improvisations and structures. Every day sets advanced creative tasks developing the preceding steps. Through the system of consecutive exercises the group grows common language and trust, ability to collaborate and create together.
 
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.
