Our work is based on a conscious study of physicality in which a body is not only an object of research but also an artistic instrument.

Physical theatre is a place where individuals matter. Their accumulated life experience, their inner semiotic system of gestures and other signs, their emotions matter. DialogLab is a process with each person being an inseparable part of the artistic canvas. The laboratory uses the methodology of performative practices, acting and dance trainings. The courses and programs are developed for professional actors and dancers as well as for amateurs interested in movement and non-verbal theatre. The artistic focus of the project is on creating performances, interdisciplinary coproductions and films.

The project is established in 2018 in Moscow by a group of choreographers and directors: Ivan Estegneev, Evgeny Kulagin and Igor Sharoyko.
