Beyond the Method: Stanislavskian psycho-physical improvisation

Katerina Pushkin leads this fast-moving introduction to Stanislavsky’s lesser-known (and more dynamic) later work.

Using practical techniques she learnt while studying with renowned Russian director Lev Dodin at St Petersburg’s Maly Drama Theatre, she’ll share some fun, accessible ways to create vividly expressive yet nuanced characterisations through spontaneous physical action. 

This workshop can focus on any contemporary or classical play text, or you can choose from the two standard options, Chekhov or Shakespeare.
