Since 1995, the actors of the theater "InZhest" have been developing an original training system "Dances of the Beasts". This is a universal method of plastic and psychophysical training of the actor, as well as a method of creating an artistic image and working on the role, and by and large - a method of deep and multifaceted life adjustment.
The training is based on the ancient Chinese system of the Five Changes (Wu – Shin) – a system of interconnections of the five elements (primary elements) – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water.
Each element corresponds to the time of year, day, the direction of the world, the stage of the biological cycle, the development of society, color, sound, taste, etc., and also, by analogy with kung fu, the conditional image of an animal: Tiger, Bird, Monkey, Snake, Dragon - with its inherent basic qualities, type of energy, bodily canon, rhythm, atmosphere.
The training program “Dances of Animals” includes the creation of a clear psychophysical image of the Element-Animal, work in the physicla canon, pair and group interactions, and improvisations.
The training practice synthesizes the elements of pantomime and Butoh dance, physical improvisation, kung-fu and acrobatics.

The performances of the theater are made up of a diverse palette of symbols, metaphors and subtexts. Theatre without words attracts not only original directorial, stage design finds and true. The truth about our time, about ourselves "

"InZhest offers his particular vision of the crossroads of cultures, which is possibly Belarus. Their theatrical influence eclectic: from ancient Chinese philosophy and Japanese Butoh dance to comedy del'arte, Dada and Beckett's theater of the absurd. But they're doing something new. In contrast to the rest of the contemporary art of Belarus, Inzhest very persistent in his expression dark and offers something more. For them the body - is the center of concentration of pain, but also a source of hope "
