The Atelier für physisches Theater - International School for Movement Acting

co-founded and run by Mina Tinaburri and Urich Ernitz since 1995, is an independent international theatre centre which is constantly researching, promoting and developing physical theatre.

Since 2004, the Atelier für physisches Theater is the first School for Movement Acting in Germany providing a training program in physical theatre, inspired by the ideas and experience of Jacques Copeau and following Jacques Lecoq’s theatre method. The training programme is very much distinct from conventional theatre by using training methods so as to give theatre a new and lively impulse.
