"*The Theatre of Centaur" Artistic direction Prof. Dr. Jurij Alschitz

METHODIKA is a unique international festival exploring various methods of
theatrical training. The festival for theatre artists, pedagogues,
directors, students and scholars of performing arts will take place in the
form of an intensive working meeting.

Register NOW: ***

About 100 specialists from all over the world will attend the IV. METHODIKA
from 5th to 11th of November 2007 in Venice. The festival opens up new
directions in the development of theatre training and the evolution of
methodological approaches; spreads knowledge to theatre professionals and
scientists; and finally creates a discussion about pedagogy in theatre
schools, and in the theatre itself.
The artistic director of the festival, Prof. Jurij Alschitz, was first able
to realise his idea of holding "METHODIKA" in 1999, concentrating on the
theme of "Personality and Ensemble", in Milan. The two consecutive
METHODIKAs, "Energy and Theatre" in 2001 and "The Face and the Mask of the
Actor" in 2003 were held in Stockholm under the patronage of the ITI/ UNESCO
Theatre Education & Training Committee. Following an interlude, 2007 marks
the return of this event.
Four masters of their craft, Cesar Brie (Bolivia), Prof. Maria S. Horne
(USA), Prof. Adolf Schapiro (Russia) *and *Prof. Rimus Tuminas
(Lithuania) will lead the workshops. *Prof. Anatoly Vasiliev,* has also been invited as a special guest of the festival with a 'carte blanche'.
*This year's theme, "The Theatre of Centaur"*, has been described thusly by
Jurij Alschitz: "In spite of the fact, that the actor's art exists far more
than one millennium, professionals still face a collection of numerous
questions of this unique and in many respects mysterious art. I have asked
myself: what amazes me most of all in the art of acting? And I answered
myself: it is the abundance of paradoxes, the non-connectable connections,
the incongruous combinations. How, for example, is it possible to combine
various categories such as "actor", "persona", "personnage", "role"? Do they
exclude each other, belonging to various substances, or do they supplement
each other? How do the models "actor-role" and "character-as real person"
co-exist executed in parallel activity by the same subject? How are the
given models created on-stage? What prospects of realisation has the ideal
model? In our opinion, the contemporary theory of theatre, is not capable to
answer the given questions adequately, simply because they are very little
studied today. Therefor the necessity arises to search for answers, based on
philosophical and artistic principles, to these questions concerning the
actor's art. This leads to the wish to carry out the 4th edition of the
international festival METHODIKA."
