The VIII METHODIKA - International Festival for Theatre

A long-established tradition, this festival has been bringing theatre professionals together since 1999 in different countries on a biennial basis. This year, the initiator and artistic director of the festival is himself the subject of artistic exchange. The VIII METHODIKA festival is entitled Resonance with the School of Jurij Alschitz and lies in the hands of his own “International Team of Teachers”.
The festival’s director, Christine Schmalor, has invited artists having received significant inspiration from Jurij Alschitz, and who now work as directors and teachers to present their working methods through trainings, lectures and so-called lecture performances. This valuable resonance provides the World Theatre Training Institute with live feedback for its teaching and research work.
Making this occasion particularly special is the 20th anniversary of artistic work in AKT-ZENT’s studio in Berlin Kreuzberg. Over the years, the studio has become the artistic homeland of innumerable colleagues from around the world.
As Research Centre of the International Theatre Institute, the World Theatre Training Institute AKT-ZENT dedicates this festival to the 70th anniversary of ITI, the World Organisation for Performing Arts.
Further Information about METHODIKA and the preliminary programme is available on our Website:
We appreciate your interest in our festival and are available for interviews.

The World Theatre Training Institute AKT-ZENT is the appointed research centre of the International Theatre Institute, the World Organisation for the Perfoming Arts.

It was founded by the artistic director Dr. Jurij Alschitz as AKT-ZENT International Theatre Centre Berlin to establish post-graduate courses for theatre practitioners with the aim to connect training, research and artistic production. Over the years, Dr Jurij Alschitz established a teaching and rehearsal practice called “Training as Method” and formed a team of teachers, who works worldwide.

Today, the WTTI works exclusively towards the innovation of theory and practice of theatre training. All seminars, masterclasses and lectures in any country are considered as part of the permanent World Theatre Training Laboratory. They are giving birth to exercises and methods to be published in the World Theatre Training Library.

The World Theatre Training Institute enters a new era of educational practice with a range of innovative projects. The scientific focus lies in the development of the artist’s “self-education” and “self-creation” based on the concept of the “homo creativus” and on the understanding of a “holistic theatre”.
