Nikolai Demidov’s School of Acting – Pedagogy of the Future


Event Details

11th May, 2016
The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama 62-64 Eton Avenue London NW3 3HY
Free admission

Nikolai Demidov’s School of Acting is Russian Theatre’s best-kept secret. Until the first decade of the 21st century, the name of Nikolai Demidov (1884-1953) was known only to a narrow circle of specialists. Following a long period of suppression, the Demidov heritage is now slowly making its way into the curriculum of Russia’s foremost theatre conservatoires.

To mark the forthcoming publication of his book, Nikolai Demidov: Becoming an Actor-Creator (Routledge, June 2016), Professor Malaev-Babel will present a history of Demidov’s methods, discuss his relationship with Stanislavski and the System, and share his own experience of working with the Demidov technique at one of the USA’s prestigious acting conservatoires.
