An international research symposium presented by The Stanislavsky Research Centre and DAMU Prague.

About this event

Stanislavsky's heroic struggle to complete his life's mission in the last four years of his life ran in two parallel lines which can be considered complementary. His practical research developed in the form of Active Analysis/Method of physical actions and his documenting the System, recollecting and reworking his older texts and experiences. This laid the ground for a potential dichotomy and uncertainty in respect of the transmission of live practice and methodology.

This symposium will focus on the problems of the transmission of Stanislavsky's final research in its artistic, socio-political and broadly historical context and follow its contemporary re-discovery and renewal, explored through the sharing of both theoretical and practical research.

The symposium will bring together a number of distinguished international guest speakers: Keynote addresses by Professor Maria Shevtsova (Goldsmiths University of London), author of Re-Discovering Stanislavsky and Professor Sharon Marie Carnicke (University of Southern California) whose books include Stanislavsky in Focus. Professor Bella Merlin (University of California Riverside), author of The Complete Stanislavsky Toolkit will present a guest workshop, and Professor Rhonda Blair (Southern Methodist University) gives the Jean Benedetti Memorial Lecture.
