Ars incognita 2005 Berlin

After the great success of The Vertical of the Role, author, director and acting teacher Professor Dr. Jurij Alschitz has written a new handbook aiding day-to-day acting practice. Again the focus lies on the independence and autonomy of actors as the protagonists of contemporary theatre. Directors and teachers will find useful advice for their preparation time and inspiration on how to conduct the rehearsal process.
A method of questions? A question of the method.
All theatre systems and methods, including this one, are only meaningful when they are approached creatively and not as dogmas. It should, therefore, be stated from the outset that this is a book of questions and not ready answers. Here a question serves as the key to discovering the heart of the matter. The rare but vital characteristic of an actor or director that requires many of his fundamental ideas be rearranged lies in being able to ask questions of the role. Try your skills! Take a chance and you will discover the amazing world of the role, filled with various secrets and mysteries to which there is always an answer that sometimes comes straight away and sometimes never.

Today's actors must be able to perform as soloists in the world of theater and film. The technique of the 'Vertical of the Role' enables actors to work up their roles on their own, and this not only makes them free and independent, it also makes them the authors of their art. It offers the basis for all manner of successful auditions, but also for artistic interaction within an ensemble and with a director. Generations of actors have grown up with Stanislavsky's classic, 'The Actor's Work on Himself'. But the theater of the 21st century with its own framework of production requires new forms of independent work from the actor. Jurij Alschitz has developed the method of the 'Vertical of the Role' in the course of years of research into theater practice, which he carried out in the European Theater Centers that he has established in Germany, Italy, and Scandinavia. He has tested it and applied it successfully in stage practice in various countries. Jurij Alschitz in his book offers his thoughts on the ethics of the acting profession. He views the actor as the author, creator, and center of the dramatic performance, who must consequently be equipped with the appropriate technical skills to fulfill these several tasks. The successive phases of the actor's work on the 'Vertical of the Role' are explained in detail, ready to be used by the actor, or to form a basis for teachers and directors who wish to apply this method. A separate chapter describes daily training for the actor on the basis of practical exercises

 LA MATEMATIKA DELL' ATTORE

to order in italian

 

Cos'e questo manuale. Dopo il successo del suo precedente manuale pubblicato da Ubulibri, La grammatica dell'attore, giunto in pochi anni alla terza edizione, per merito anche dello stile fresco e semplice della scrittura, Alschitz condensa in questo libro lo sviluppo del proprio sapere pedagogico. La riflessione e la pratica del suo insegnamento teatrale si sono spinte ancora piu in la sulla strada dell'autonomia formativa dell'attore, al quale indica dettagliatamente il percorso di un lavoro individuale molto piu coinvolgente di quanto abitualmentre non si verifichi. Con questo manuale di esercizi pratici, che spaziano da un piu approfondito lavoro sullo "spirito" del ruolo ("l'invisibile del personaggio" o la sua "dimensione verticale"), descritto con un fervore che evoca maestri come Stanislavskij e Grotowski, a una rigorosa metodologia di "addestramento" del corpo in scena, si traccia un nuovo approccio alla pedagogia dell'attore, un attore che Alschitz vuole sempre piu protagonista della propria arte, piu solido come professionista e affrancato da radicate insicurezze e sudditanze. "Gli attori devono possedere conoscenze non inferiori a quelle dei registi. Devono saper analizzare un testo, essere indipendenti nell'affrontare le prove, saper strutturare il proprio ruolo, essere in grado di adottare diversi sistemi di recitazione ed essere capaci di poter condurre il gioco scenico. Questi sono i saperi che formano la matematica dell'attore". A chi e indirizzato. Agli attori professionisti o che tali cercano di diventare; ai sempre piu numerosi allievi delle grandi e piccole scuole di teatro, che continuano ad aumentare; agli insegnanti di queste scuole, che troveranno una miniera di suggerimenti utili e forse la stessa "felicita" che l'insegnamento ha dato e continua a dare a Jurij Alschitz.

 The Art of Dialogue

The Art of Dialogue The actor?s profession is, fi rst and foremost, an open system of communication in an endless dialogue with his character, with his partner, with the director, with the spectators, with the playwright, with the role - but at the end of this list we should say ? the actor also has an infi nite dialogue with himself. When the actor himself is open, then he knows how to open others, and then they open up to him. The opening of another system, and of another view, allows the actor to learn something new, to go beyond the boundaries of his familiar knowledge of the world and himself.

In Theatre, dialogue is the art of creating with others. And for this, you need not only the talent of a Person but also the skills and mastership of an Artist. In this book, you will be introduced to my research about dialogue on stage, sketches of working methods and, of course, practical exercises. It?s important to me that you fi nd something useful here, something questionable and even something which you don?t need at all. I hope you will fall in love with dialogue on stage, and open up its artistic beauty for yourself.
