About Ostrenko Brothers Method


Ostrenko's method is a systematic approach to performance, which generates innovative productions utilizing concepts, ideas, and existing play-texts. It introduces some of the effective techniques and approaches towards contemporary performance practice in the context of the short rehearsal time and multicultural aspect of the creative team.


It can be also described as a valid combination of practice and theory. It’s a very practical approach to the performance making process from the performers' perspective, as well as from the directors'. The Ostrenkos' approach generates innovative productions, utilizing concepts, ideas, and discoveries of K.Stanislavski, Vs.Meyerhold and M.Chekhov.


Ostrenko's method of work relies on the performer’s physicality and physical action. The key to unfolding the actor’s creative nature underlies in the body. Through the body and physical actions, actors discover form, emotional colours, and feelings. The actor’s relationship with artistic space, his freedom in improvisation and spontaneity play an important role in the creative process. As a result, intangible becomes tangible. Atmosphere and style are born inseparably from this creative process.


Ostrenko Brothers method offers the tools and support necessary for students to reach their full potential in performing and directing.

Gennadiy Ostrenko

About Gennadiy Ostrenko

Gennadiy Ostrenko - movement director, teacher and stage designer. He received his first education in Fine Arts. After graduation he started to work at theatre, starting his career from a stage designer to a movement director. He has carried out many lines of creative projects in the field of performing arts in Ukraine and Russia. In the framework of IUGTE, he took part in different international multidisciplinary projects in Austria, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Latvia and Malta. Gennadiy is a movement director in many international performance productions in Russia and Ukraine. In the series of International Shakespeare Performance Projects in Russia and Ukraine, he worked on movement and choreography for such performances as “Passions of Romeo”, "Rehearsing Richard", "Lullaby for Hamlet" and "Love and Death in Verona". Gennadiy Ostrenko's passion for the movement has resulted in a newly designed program for performers - "Theatre Biomechanics". This program is mainly based on Vsevolod Meyerhold investigations of techniques for performers training. Gennadiy based his program on elements of classical Meyerhold's biomechanics, which go in conjunction with contemporary methods of performers' preparation. Another important part of Gennadiy's teaching approach is improvisation. Improvisation is an important part of training for actors, as it is related not only to bodywork but also to work with imagination and images. The researches in improvisation brought him to a deeper study of M. Chekhov's technique, as well as to the study of the animal movement.
