École des Écoles teacher seminar, Vilnius, 23 – 26 October 2014

Contemporary theatre practices have changed significantly since the most influential systems of actors’ training – suggested by Stanislavski and Lecoq – were created. To what extent do they meet the requirements of contemporary stage? Or are they completely old‐fashioned? What other methods are used in actors’ training today? We invite to share the experiences as well as to reconsider the aims and forms of today’s actors’ education – does it exactly give what they need in their artistic career?
