ALthattheatre proposes a revolution in theatre education.
The research center of ITI – World Organization for the Performing Arts – offers artists the chance to participate in the future of theatre training.
ALthattheatre was created by the internationally acclaimed theatre director and teacher Dr Jurij Alschitz. Together with his team of teachers, he introduces Quantum Pedagogy for vocational training as well as for postgraduate studies for established and emerging artists.
Jurij Alschitz and his vision for ALthattheatre
“As a Whole, Theatre does not exist through the sum of its parts, namely its performances, roles, theories and ideas. Instead, Theatre is a single huge living organism to which all these small parts belong to.
As actors, we are part of the Theatre as a Whole, just like atoms make up matter. We belong to the Theatre whilst simultaneously bearing its essence. Anything related to Theatre, whether it be a renowned theory, a large or small performance, an undiscovered actor or an incredibly famous one, all are merely tiny particles within the theatrical sphere and contribute in their unique way to the formation of the Whole. There is therefore an imperative resonance between the actor as micro-theatre and his macro-theatre, and thus a sacred bond is created, a union between the actor and his Theatre.
|This is it! The Law of the Theatre must be enclosed within the hearts of actors! Do not teach methods and systems from the start, but write the Covenant in their hearts so that they feel that they are people of the Theatre.|
This conception of the Theatre implies a sense of eternality. The Theatre is indeed an everlasting entity which bears no notion of past or future, it simply lives in an eternal present. This timelessness allows anyone from anywhere at any time to be a part of it, something greatly emphasised by this project: it reaches out to anyone across the globe of any age, gender, nationality or stage in their career. Regardless of our differences, we are all brought together by our resonance with the Theatre and can work together to broaden our knowledge.
ALthattheatre provides you with remarkable levels of thinking, enabling you to build your own “Theatre” and emerge as a unique individual. Only after having built this foundation is it beneficial to learn different methods, skills and techniques to further enhance your artistic creativity.”
ALthattheatre is taught by an international team of teachers, which was set up by Dr Jurij Alschitz and has worked together for many years.
