Demidov (London) – 30 November – 1 December 2019
It’s More Method, Than Method!
Join Me On The Journey To Confessionally Sincere Acting And Unrestricted Expression
As you probably know, I have spent quite a bit of time in Moscow lately, going deep into the works of the Russian Grand Masters Of Acting – Eugene Vakhtangov and Nikolai Demidov.
On my latest visit, I focused on Demidov’s work and it’s fair to say that I have discovered some transformational adjustments to that work. To be frank, it is completely mind-blowing and I desperately want you to have these adjustments. They will change your acting forever. It’s even deeper and more immersive than what I did with you previously. Not only that, it’s even more enjoyable. You will completely fall in love with this new way of working. I did. Yes, that’s correct I went back into the classroom as a student while in Moscow to experience it first hand. I couldn’t believe how brilliant and subtle the changes were, which for someone of my experience to say that it was mind-blowing says a lot.
So now I need to give you these latest updates and change to the circle exercise and the etude work. In fact, this up and coming Demidov class we will focus entirely on these two exercises and grow the etude work which will become mini-plays in themselves.
Vakhtangov – Moscow – 2020
Next year I am planning on holding a Vakhtangov Masterclass with a Master Vakhtangov Teacher in Moscow, but I need the students doing that class to be up-to-date with the Demidov work. I don’t have all the details for the Moscow class yet but I’m anticipating this being a week-long early next year. I’m just giving you a heads up on that because I won’t be able to accept people who haven’t done the Demidov update onto that class. Of course, you can do the Demidov class separately, but if you want to come to Moscow with me next year then you need to do this one first.
Why am I doing this?
I am now working on combining Demidov, Vakhtangov and Strasberg’s work to create a new approach. I am moving into a very deep exploratory phase.
I’m in the process of discovery and I would like you to help me (and yourself) discover the next breakthroughs. These courses are going to be groundbreaking and experimental. If you want to be part of this exciting new discoveries and evolution of the work, then you are welcome to join me.
If you think the work I have done with you in the past has been deep and meaningful then just wait until you expereince this. It takes the work to a new level.
