Jurij Alschitz

positions – proposals – ideas

Selected moments with Jurij Alschitz​

Here we share some thought-provoking snapshots. Ideas, proposals and artistic perspectives from a master who loves to look at theatre in a new way every day.

We begin this series by sharing in short sequences how Jurij Alschitz relates to Konstantin S. Stanislavsky  in his theatre training; how respect – at times objection – out of deepest knowledge of the system leads to innovations in acting in today’s theatre with its changed dramaturgical demands.

A continually growing archive – come back to see more next time.


The real work is to stop the inertia. The inertia of a method we believe in.

An actor prepares. What is the background of the role? From where to start?
