29 June – 18 July 2009, Rubiera, Italy
EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION FOR THEATRE CULTURE and AKT-ZENT International Theatre Centre under the artistic direction of Prof. Dr. Jurij Alschitz invites theatre directors, actors, dramaturgs, musicians and visual artists to take part in The VII International Theatre Summer Academy. This year the Academy will take place at La Corte Ospitale, Rubiera, Italy. Within the European long-term research project on “The Art of Dialogue”, the Academy plays one of the main roles with its theme Theatre in Dialogue with the Arts. In order to provide a common ground for artists from different fields all participants will work on the same text - Pushkin's “Mozart and Salieri”. Three different courses will follow three lines of research. Each course will look at the material from a different perspective, hereby using methodologies from various fields in order to provide different levels of analysis on the existing text, and at the same time to enrich theatre training and rehearsal methods. For the mis-en-scene of the piece, we want to combine different tools from theatre, music and the visual arts, creating a dialogue between these art forms.
– a course for advanced actors and directors
The course will concentrate on, how directors, in collaboration with actors can transform Literature into theatre.
The course will accept (3/4) directors, (6/8) actors
Led by Dr. Jurij Alschitz
– a course for professional actors with interest to develop their musical sense as well as for singers, musicians, and conductors
This course will focus on the element of musicality in dramatic theatre, as well as the element of drama in music and music theatre.
Please indicate in your application, which kind of musical experience you have, and which instrument you play, if any.
– a course for actors, performers, dancers with interest in choreography, visual artists, scenographers, dramaturgs
The visual scenic elements of modern theatre have increasingly gained such importance that have, at times, become more prominent than the art of the actor. This seeming competition shall turn into the creative dialogue. The starting point of this course will be the study of paintings, which will be used for exercises to unfold the actor’s own creativity.
This course is addressed mainly towards young actors.
