International Directors’ and Trainers’ Colloquium artistic direction: Prof. Dr. Jurij Alschitz.
the pause on stage
Berlin, 04. - 16. Januar 2010

Every January directors, actors and teachers have been meeting in the studio of AKT-ZENT for the International Directors’ and Trainers’ Colloquium for continuous education through practical work, lectures, discussions. It is a yearly encounter between colleagues from different countries as well as colleagues from Berlin’s theatres. This meeting is open for every professional artist interested in the theme and interested to join a European network.

This year’s theme is: The pause on stage - what does this mean? Is it just silence? If the answer is no, then what could happen during the pause? What kind of life can exist inside the pause? What is the content of the pause? If the pause is not just an empty space, how do we fill the space? What kind of material do we need for it?
There are different kinds of pauses - the pause of the author, the pause of the director and the pause of the actor. There are psychological pauses and playing pauses. How does one define them and work with them? How does the pause relate to the text? Is the pause born from the text?
Or - the text born from the pause? What makes the difference between these two points of view and why are they leading to different results?
This is the circle of questions we will explore and discuss in this colloquium.

The colloquium will investigate the work with the pause as a rehearsal method for directors, a training method for teachers, and as the main territory of creation for actors.
For the practical work we will use examples from the master of the pause – Anton P. Chekhov:
The Seagull, Three Sisters, Uncle Vanja, Cherry Ochard

Each day will content training, theoretical lectures, analysis and practical work on stage.

The different kind of the dialogue and ways of analysis
Looking at the history of theatre – the main principles of dialogue vary for the different kinds of dialogue and periods of theatre. We will examine:

* the pure dialogue (exchange between two individuals to open knowledge)
* the dialogue of I + I (2 monologues exchanging replica)
* the dialogue of the “upper I”(2 positions for one unknown truth; Plato)
* the dialogue of agreement (the way to find agreement through the labyrinth; Molière, Shakespeare)
* the dialogue as duell (fencing with words; Oscar Wilde)
* the dialogue of gentlemen (the other position comes first)
* the dialogue of the deaf (Chekhov, Pinter, Beckett)
