October 17, 2022

The students of the Kazakh National Academy of Arts upgraded their stage and acting skills. The university professors also took part in a series of workshops and classes dedicated to acting and stage movement.

During the classes Anna Trifonova and Aidar Zakirov (GITIS professors and representatives) taught students and professors to listen to themselves and be in touch with others.

Students were also taught the basics of fencing. This skill might be especially useful in playing medieval scenes. GITIS professors later commented that “It was a pleasure to teach Kazakh colleagues — they easily and quickly picked up all the knowledge”.

“We are happy that not only our professors teach at this school, but that our students attend these workshops. This is an important experience for them, and this school gives them incredible opportunities for both education and networking” — commented GITIS rector Grigory Zaslavsky.

Students from the classes of Alexander Titel and Igor Yasulovich assisted professors during the workshops. On the last day of school students performed Gluck’s opera “An Unexpected Meeting, or Pilgrims to Mecca”. Students of the Kazakh National Academy of Arts organized an evening of national music and introduced Russian colleagues to their cultural traditions.

The GITIS School in Kazakhstan was organized with the support of the Presidential Grants Fund and the Theater Education Support & Development Fund.
