Module "Building A Character"

If you ever wondered what Meyerholds Biomechanics might possibly mean for you as an actor or how to put the principles into practice then this is your chance to finally find out in this BIOMECHANICS BERLIN Module:

'Building A Character'

While working on the creation of a fictive character, actors will learn and apply all the principles of Biomechanics. Freeing ourselves from all psychology we will 'send the body forward' and discover how much expression lies in Meyerhold's physical approach. This module will also investigate the relation between 'the physical and the emotional body'.

online Module “Basic ONE"

The Module Basic One is both step-by-step way for beginners to get in contact with the main principles of Biomechanics and a great chance to keep your biomechanically advanced instrument 'in tune'.

We are covering all known 7 principles of Biomechanics by practicing several exercises. The aim is to let our bodies save the idea that in biomechanical terms of acting the whole body is participating.
