|An approach where directors, actors and dancers indulge in a creative process of physical and vocal training, creating material, and experience how to, through the process of montage, build a performance. Work of the Institute is intended for practicing professionals and those moving towards this.
The work of the Institute consists of:
During the first week at the Institute, the students will be working with actresses Maja Vujović and Sanja Krsmanović Tasić, renowned voice and movement specialists. The other two weeks at the Institute will be led by director and co-founder of Dah Theatre, Dijana Milošević.
Maja Vujović, an actress and a core member of Dah Theatre since its inception, will focus her work on VOICE TRAINING, aimed at developing the vocal possibilities of each individual. She will work on warm-ups, resonators, and vocal actions. She will also focus on the WORK ON TEXTS that consists of creating materials through improvisations, song and physical improvisation.
Sanja Krsmanović Tasić, an actress and core member of Dah Theatre since 1993, will focus her work on PHYSICAL TRAINING, in search of an articulated "speaking/thinking" body of the performer. The participants will go through warm-up exercises, breathing exercises, the "Heart Beat" physical training, and guided improvisation. By searching for the organic impulse that articulates itself through movement this work will develop the sensibility of each individual towards the partner on stage and a sense of group and ensemble.
During the next two weeks, director Dijana Milošević will work on different skills and techniques that form the foundation of the performer's craft. This will focus on the principles of a performer's presence, translating various art forms for the stage and researching personal stories and biographies for the basis of creating performances. The work will also focus on creating actor's material and through the process of montage, building a theatrical performance.
The language spoken during the 3-week intensive at the Institute is English.

From the previous year's participants:
"You all gave enormously and patiently of yourselves, your time, your passion and your art. You have reinspired me with a model of life and work - of the possibilities if one works hard and fights when needed. You have helped me to believe the power of my imagination and my dreams."
Electa Behrens (USA)
"I know you through your work and that is what has drawn me to want to work with you. The Helen Keller work made a profound impression on me. You do profound work. I have received it gratefully. I admire and respect the work - and thus you."
Gail George (USA)
