Renaissance of the Dialogue

Dialogical principles

Course for actors

With this seminar I would like to invite you to discover the beauty of dialogue.

For many years we have been seeing mainly monologues on stage, even though many actors are on stage together. We are talking about an age of individualism, in the meantime also about the selfi-generation. The desirable insight “being enough yourself” turns into an inability to communicate, which in turn has become a major theme on stage. The issue of monological existence is influencing the practice at large. Playwrights and authors stopped writing dialogues; directors and actors stopped practicing the art of dialogue. How long is this to continue? Is it not the task of artists to reveal alternatives to reality? Is it not much more interesting to develop thoughts and insights together?

It is time to rediscover and revive the art of dialogue. Especially in times of physical isolation, dialogue is the path to freedom. The stage, once the birthplace of dialogue, calls for a renaissance and rediscovery of the most beautiful ability of human beings – spiritual exchange. More, we are speaking about energy-flow. Possible at the computer? Let’s try it out. Digital media in particular not only requires a completely new approach, but also enables new dimensions and forms of playing with the dialogical principle.

The seminar begins by exploring various forms and principles of dialogue in art. We need the dialogue with the Dialogue. The wisdom of the Dialogue might help us to discover a new potential for artistic and personal development. The moment I open my shell I expose myself to the risk – of losing or winning. Without opening-up a dialogue is not possible and without risk there is no artistic life. 

The course is aimed at artists from all over the world and is held in simple English.

The course is based on the book by Jurij Alschitz. Please get it directly from our bookshop as print or e-pub version.
