Master-It with Maria Shevtsova 

Sessions 1 & 2: Rediscovering Stanislavski

The growing picture starts with Stanislavsky, founder of the modern director and the serious art and profession of directing. He was also the active champion of the free, creative actor who, in his words, is not a puppet or a dependent but a co-author of theatre work, whether spoken, sung (not least opera) danced, or otherwise performed. References to Stanislavsky’s contemporaries, notably Meyerhold as a ‘director’s director’, open out the discussion to prominent directors today whose role in the expansion of what the very idea of ‘theatre’ might mean, including in contextual social terms, needs to be better understood.

The sessions aim to provide material of practical use and inspiration for anyone directing for the stage.

Please note places are limited and attendance at BOTH sessions is required.

Session 1: Which Stanislavski? – Actors and Studios: Monday 3rd April / 2-5pm 
Session 2: Director and Directing: Tuesday 18th April / 2-5pm
