Rawmatterial invites actors and directors for an exploration of Chekhov’s short stories through the method of the etude led by performer and directorMaria Gaitanidi. Participants will work from the author’s material via monologues and scenes, towards the discovery of their actor’s nature, their creativity and their artistic independence.
About Chekhov began in October 2013 as a series of sessions introducing actors to Maria Knebel’s and Anatoli Vassiliev’s pedagogical approach to theatre.
The work is open to all regardless of age and experience and requires commitment, an open mind and a desire to experiment.
