This book is a lesson – a lesson in the training of actors. Accompanied by specific theories, Training Forever! consists of an extensive number of practical exercises, as well as the author’s own views and experiences of Theatre and Theatrical Pedagogy. Here you will find over one hundred and fifty different exercises (with extension variations), the majority of which were collected and developed as a result of Jurij Alschitz’ working collaboration with theatres and theatrical institutions across Europe. The book is structured as follows:
1. Training – teaching the actor
2. Professional research training in the theatre,
3. Training for theatre pedagogues.
“To me, training is the most important element in the professional teaching of actors. Thanks to training the actor prepares himself for the role, and only then practices the role itself. That is why I see training as the most important part, rehearsals come second. In my view, it is the daily training that guarantees artistic longevity. That is why the book has been called Training Forever!”
