This is my way

For artists before and at the beginning of their career

In the beginning there was chaos

This is a course before you start learning acting. This is also a course before you accept your first engagement.

You want to prepare yourself for the life in theatre. For sure you already asked yourself, why? And I am sure, you found already good reasons. So, let’s start. But with what should one start? Of course we first want to know how it works. And the first thing you look for are skills and methods. My recommendation: Forget about it. You will get them later. What sense does it make to have sophisticated tools if you don’t have a plan what to do with them? First, you should understand what you are really looking for. 

Don’t ask me, and don’t ask anyone else besides yourself!

Start your journey of discovery. Do not expect immediate answers. Just start by being curious and asking questions. Now, if you will use them creatively and constructively, even giving up the path of logic in favor of contradictory truths, you might come to a point when you can think two things at once and do three things simultaneously – you are on the right path to a complex artistic freedom.

  • This course prepares you for a wide artistic horizon. You will open the beauty of hypertext thinking, and learn to feel at home in the complex world of art – and philosophy.
  • This is a course full of practical exercises and tasks that you can continue afterwards with yourself, with friends and colleagues – with everyone who thinks and acts artistically!
  • This course can only be the initial impulse for a long individual path that you will take as an artist.
  • Finally, this course will help you to concretise your individual vision of theatre. Your personal image of theatre is the only compass that will guide you through your formation and your engagements.
