Physical Disorders of Performers and Their Prevention
Performing art is directly related to the physiological processes of creative activity – to the performer’s posture, movement coordination, breathing, blood circulation, as well as to the biochemical processes of the human brain. All this directly affects the success and results of creative work. For active and creative performers who link their future with instrument management and stage activities, it is strongly recommended to pay attention to all these issues and take care of their physical health. During the seminar, the somatic and vegetative expressions of the performers’ nervous system, as well as stress and its management methods, will be discussed. It has already been proven that after assessing their physical condition and adapting appropriate ways of managing it, performers could feel more stable, prevent the most common physical disorders of performers, or deal with them properly if they do occur.

“Bond2tradition: a Licence to Interpret”
Young aspiring musicians are confronted with enormous pressure, coming from a decade-long exposure to established patterns of interpretation devolved from teaching stuff of elder generations. Is an artistic independence just ever-fading chimere? What are important decisions to make, trailing own path in a flourishing variety of academic mastery? And where the thin line between a living tradition and worn out cliche lays? Let’s explore some decisive aspects and useful tools in this for centuries relevant discourse. So, let’s acquire ourselves an important licence – to interpret.
