Program Description:

International Winter School of Physical Theatre

February 21 - 26, 2017
Retzhof Castle - Austria

Is any Theatre Physical?...
Any kind of theatre is physical by its essence. It speaks universal languge. The creation comes from the actor's body. The actor’s body is involved in creating physical space for the spectator. The actor's body is at the centre of the storytelling process.
What is Physical Theatre Today?...

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.

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.

The working language is English.

The accommodation for the participants is organized at the guest house of the beautiful 15th century refurbished Retzhof Castle in the landscape of natural beauty in Leitring bei Leibnitz, Austria. The group will stay and practice all together in the same venue. The group meals are also organized at Retzhof Castle restaurant.
