Workshop: Introduction to Meyerhold’s Biomechanics

During the workshop, we will explore the physical techniques of Biomechanics, a plastic play system created by Meyerhold that provides the actor the necessary tools to re-educate his reflexes; collaborating to move away his daily and mechanical movements; to build characters through a psychophysical approach; to play in a state of deeper concentration and thus master the scenic play.


  • Warm up
  • Work on rhythm – the “inner musicality”
  • Work on the principles of Biomechanics, according to Meyerhold, natural and fundamental elements of the gesture, such as:
  • Otkaz (the refusal): a counter-movement that serves both to prepare the action and to give the signal to the stage partner indicating that the actor is ready to react.
  • Pacil (sending): the simultaneous commitment to the action and the action itself.
  • Tormos (the brake): the constraint that the actor must simultaneously exercise with the force ahead of the pacil in order to maintain control.
  • Totcbka (a point in space, the point at the end of the body sentence) or stoïca (posture). They indicate the culmination of an action at a specific point in space.
