Launch of the Innovative Theatre Education Programme ALthattheatre - Jurij Alschitz Introduces Quantum Pedagogy

ALthattheatre proposes a revolution for the actor training by reducing the study period to three months. ALthattheatre introduces hybrid theatre training and guides students from self-education to the self-creation as an artist.

Berlin, Germany (FPRC) December 18, 2019 -- The World Theatre Training Institute AKT-ZENT, research center of the International Theater Institute ITI has been dedicated to the research of theater training methods for over 20 years. Most recently, the main focus was on the methodical qualification of acting teachers.

ALthattheater is now aimed directly at aspiring and professional actors. What is special is that beginners and professional actors are united in an innovative learning and teaching process. In addition, it is intended to have the greatest possible cultural diversity amongst the participants which will reflect the basic idea of a holistic concept of theater: the individual artist carries the whole world theater within him and develops an individual artistic profile in this consciousness.

The pioneering methodological achievement is, however, the short training period: three months instead of three years, as in a classic training. This is made possible by the Quantum Pedagogy developed by Dr. Jurij Alschitz.

ALthattheatre begins online. Through specific tasks in dialogue with the teachers the students open up the ability to self-education. For the second part students arrive to a selected place in nature, away from everyday life where they meet an international team of teachers who have been working together for a long time. Here, the Impulse Training - developed on the basis of the wave and resonance theory - provokes the artist’s system in such way, that it enables the students to shape their artistic life independently. The actor’s resonating system becomes the motor for lifelong self-education, creativity and finally self-creation as artist.

The first work period of ALthattheatre will be March - May 2020.
The application and registration is possible until February 2020.

“… In this eternal journey towards Theatre, I take care of the seeds of your knowledge and teachings to create my path. ALthattheatre is a life time challenge and self-training. No answers.
