This master-class is designed by Yury Muravitsky to explore the concept ofa universal actor (or an all-in-one actor). The qualities of a universal actor are determined by the requests. What kind of an actor do the film and theatre directors want to see nowadays?
Today in order to fit into the context of performing arts an actor has to be a master of not just one but various techniques; he/she has to be able to create, co-create and perform. During the class you will dig into the possibilities of educating yourself to be a universal actor; this will allow you to become fully functional in the context of modern art. You will also look closely at the skills and knowledge needed. Yury Muravitsky will talk about his experience of teaching at the Moscow School of New Cinema and share some exercises devised for the first-year acting students.
