View points technic
Acting workshop – by Tanya Weinstein
The technique is suitable for both actors, dancers, prof and amateurs interested in a performative view to the world.

The technique makes possible to set and change your attitude to what is happening at every moment on the stage. You just change the focus, point of view, perspective, that's creating a huge volume to very simple situations, movements, studies.

The method is interesting to those who are engaged in dramatic art as a way to expand their capabilities during the performance and pay attention not only to the history or emotion, but also to form, space, time.

For dancers, this is an opportunity to focus on the text or narrative, on the plot.

For fans who are not directly connected with the theater, this is a new way to listen to music or better place yourself in space.

The class will last 3 hours and will be adapted to the professional level of the students.

Class language: Russian/English.

Meisner technique
Master class – by Scott Trost

Meisner technique

Sanford Meisner put his attention to exercises that develop "instantaneous" spontaneity, "excitation of the flow of impulses", when the game becomes a reaction to what is happening, and not a goal pursuing a predetermined result.

He developed a method that gives the actor access to their own emotions. The most difficult thing for a theater actor is to listen. Meisner focused on exercises that elicit a natural response from the actor in the process of dialogue, he focused the actor's attention on his stage partner.
