The lesson starts every day with a movement training of about 1- 1,5 hours (the duration depends on the subject of each workshop). The work is specially designed for the following acting class and is an indispensable part of the workshop. As the single workshops are different each week, also the movement training of each workshop differs from the other.
Elements of acrobatics- partner and single (everybody, no matter which age or size, can do it!, because Nicole works with everybody´s personal needs and limits), awareness-training, energetic dance, stretching- and relaxation exercises, group work, Pilates, Shiatsu and Feldenkrais are used for this training.

about Nicole Kehrberger : After having taught for 13 years at the Ecole Philippe Gaulier in London and Paris, in 2011 Nicole Kehrberger established the International Theater Summer School in Berlin.
She has a long lasting experience as an award winning actress, acrobat, aerial artist and dancer on international stages and she combines all those disciplines in her teaching.
During the quest for the individual beauty of each student, she tosses etiquette, theories, styles and masks into the wind. In every student she searches for his candidness, vulnerability and his fragility, which contributes to the discovery of an open, inventive, joyful and individual play in an empty space.
What people say about her work:
…I wouldn’t be what I am as performer and director if there hadn’t been Nicole.“ Marco, actor and director, Italy
„Nicole´s workshops contain a highly physical training (Yes, real sweat! But don’t worry, you don’t have to be an acrobat) and approach, but are not to be confused with “physical theatre” as a genre (Yes, real sweat! But don’t worry, you don’t have to be an acrobat)She is a wonderfully demanding teacher with an enormous capacity of observing, identifying and working on the strong and weak points of every single participant, with joy/fun as an essential buddy of the work. Her strength lies in focusing on sensitivity, awareness and truthfulness in action and interaction. So, it’s not about techniques in the first place, but on YOU in your uniqueness as a performer.“ Anne, director, Germany
In 2011 we established our international theater summer school in Berlin.
The intense work takes place every year between June and August.
Students from the US, Greece, Switzerland, Austria, France, Italy, Germany Belgium, Netherlands, Romania, Slovakia, Argentina, Israel and Mexico participated in this first years summer school workshops.
Nicole about her intention: “In the International Theater Summer School Berlin wish, and until now I succeeded to pass on to you what I´ve learned and discovered throughout the past 28 years of being on stage and what made me stand out of a crowd of good.
It is great fun and you can have an exchange with actors, performers, musicians, directors from different countries all over the world. Many of my ex students still meet up after years and develop great shows together.
The International Theater Summer School Berlin is specially designed for performers, dancers, acrobats, musicians, actors or those who want to become one (exceptions can be made). I teach people who want to widen their horizons, their experiences, who want to recharge their batteries and get a very personal, physical, unconventional and extremely joyful approach to their acting/ performing – everybody who want to get that little extra to be brilliant on stage, whatever stage that might be.
For me, acting starts with the body. Every day´s lesson starts with a group and movement training of about 1- 1,5 hours. The work is specially designed for the following acting class and is an indispensable part of the workshop.
Elements of acrobatics- partner and single (everybody, no matter which age or size, can do it, because we work with everybody´s personal needs and limits), awareness-training, energetic dance, stretching- and relaxation exercises, group work, Pilates, Shiatsu and Feldenkrais are part of this training.
