The Basis of Quantum Pedagogy
Three Courses for actors, directors and teachers
Theory - Methology - Training
Max Planck, more than 100 years ago, came up with the idea that our world is a flash of energy – quantum. That’s how knowledge flashes, that’s how this pedagogy is built, that’s how the lesson lives – by many flashes. It is the connections, the union with other knowledge and structures.
Quantum pedagogy strives for “knowledge of knowledge”.
Actors tune in not to follow their teacher/director, but to unfold, rearrange, separate, make decisions instantly – they perceive knowledge about theatre through various points. Knowledge does not stand still. It is constantly moving, evolving, interacting with other ideas, adding, multiplying, changing and even destroying. This is the essence of one of the principles of the quantum technique – I call it liquid knowledge.
Quantum pedagogy applied means a total change of the individual perception; it implies the dis-function of the logic we have been brought up with, and therefore leads to a complete re-set of the mind. It affects artistic communication and creation. Therefore I will repeat it – quantum pedagogy – not for everyone. Quantum pedagogy is built on the relativity of knowledge and belief. Its effectiveness can be recognized only on the basis of subjective experience. If this condition does not resonate with you, forget about it. It does not mean that you are not smart enough, not educated enough, not developed enough. It just means that the quantum approach isn’t for you. Quantum pedagogy requires a special consciousness of special thinking from you, and that is its main difficulty.
Quantum pedagogy is not about forming a good performer, but a creator.
This course shares step by step my findings in this new field. It is my answer to the rapidly changing world using the achievements of the science community to develop the art of acting and artistic creativity in theatre as highest category, which can then make use – if necessary – of all the technical attempts made so many.
