IUGTE Performing Arts Conference: Create, Share, Exchange!

20 - 29 July - Austria

 
PHYSICAL THEATRE LAB & PERFORMING ARTS CONFERENCE LIVE EVENT

20-29 July 2021 - Laubegg Castle, Austria

"Performing Arts Between Tradition and Contemporaneity" 
is the annual international multidisciplinary conference exploring the bridge 
between the "traditional" and the "contemporary" in performing arts. 

The live event includes two programs - Physical Theatre Lab with theatre directors and teachers Ostrenko Brothers and the program of IUGTE Conference with performing arts academics and professionals from around the world!

 

Due to the rapidly worsening situation with regards to Covid-19 in Austria, the latest recommendations by the State and our desire to make the event a safe place, the live meeting of IUGTE Lab&Conference (which was planned for 12-21 Dec.2020) was shifted to new dates in summer - 20-29 July 2021 at the same venue - Laubegg Castle. 

PERFORMING ARTS BETWEEN
TRADITION AND CONTEMPORANEITY
 

20-29 July 2021  |    Laubegg Castle, Austria

Since 2001, "Performing Arts Between Tradition and Contemporaneity" 
is the annual international multidisciplinary conference exploring the bridge 
between the "traditional" and the "contemporary" in performing arts. 

The Physical Theatre Lab program is focused on the Ostrenko brothers approach of performers’ training, relying on the Russian Theatre Tradition, as well as the newest experiments in performing arts. Performer's physicality in the methods of K.Stanislavsky, M.Chekhov, Vs.Meyerhold's Biomechanics, Tai-chi for performers, improvisation, movement directing and teaching.

 

These are some of the elements uniquely transformed and combined in Ostrenko's teaching system to suit the needs of contemporary performers, directors, and teachers.

Participants will practically explore the performer's physicality as the principal creative instrument, the key to form and style an atmosphere and emotional palette in contemporary performance, stepping beyond the limits of normative text-based acting.
 

6-Week Movement Directing Course

The program includes practical workshops and seminars, performances and works-in-progress, photo and video presentations, interactive lectures, research papers, discussions and more events. 

The Schedule is designed in a way that Lab participants can take part in all events of the IUGTE Conference program too!
