Summer 2020

directed by Gennadi N. Bogdanov and Claudio Massimo Paternò


The Biomechanics Summer Theater School is the first school in the world that offers a theatrical training course based on the education system of Theatrical Biomeccanics of Mejerchol'd. The teachers of the school are actors, directors and trainers who, starting from the Theatrical Biomechanics of Mejerchol'd, have specialized in a specific performative typology.

The program starts with basic technical instruments and goes to the composition and dramaturgy, the same educational system developed by Mejerchol'd in the early 1900s, the basis of the Soviet and now Russian theatrical academic system.

The methodology of the system is based on an actor's complete awareness of his own expressive tools and on an organization of rational and scientific work that gradually follows the student in every aspect of his training.

The school offers a program with different study subjects that will help the students to improve and get to know their expressive tools (body and voice), to expand their artistic knowledge, to take possession of the tools necessary to deal with composition and dramaturgy.

Subjects of the course: 

Theatrical Biomechanics of Mejerchol'd (basic technique) AcrobaticsManipulation of objectsClassical dance

Voice, music and rhythm Mask and image Action drama Composition / performance
