This was the first year when Belgrade International Workshop + Chekhov Fest was organized. The program of the event was focused on the art and acting technique of Michael Chekhov, the well-known Russian actor, and acting teacher. The main organizer of the festival, Mara Radulović had selected colorful events for the week and organized an extremely high-quality professional forum to Belgrade, Serbia. During the one week long workshop the participants had a chance to gain an insight into the fundamental elements of the Chekhov Technique. The teaching ensemble had been gathered from all around the world: Gretchen Egolf (U.K./U.S.), Andrew Hawkins (U.K.), Elena Kuzina (Russia), Suzana Nikolić (Croatia), Mara Radulović (Serbia/U.K.), Gianluca Reggiani (Italy), Peter Tedeschi (U.S.), Anne Towns (U.S.). The organizers had established an annual award which had been presented to Joanna Merlin, who deserves great credit for helping to spread Michael Chekhov’s work around the world. The participants were able to join different programs besides the workshops like watching performances and short-films and or gathering for professional discussions.

Thanks very much to the organizers for offering me an intern position, to the teachers for the wonderful courses and to the colleagues for having a great time, work and fun together.
It is a true honor and I’m really happy to announce that the University of Babes-Bolyai at Cluj-Napoca, Romania offered me a teaching assistant post in the second semester of the 2018-2019 school year. The Suzuki Method of Actor Training will be the basis of my work, but I’ll also use other methodological elements to serve the progress of the students in the most efficient way. I’ll work with the 1st and 3rd-year students from the acting department.
The photos of the five days-long workshop on the Suzuki Method and Viewpoints technique in Amsterdam are already uploaded in the gallery. Check it out! Thanks to the highly professional team for their commitment and curiosity, for the organization to the TEN and to the wonderful teaching colleagues Janouke Goosen and Judith Sleddens for their hard work.
Invited by Blanka Macaveiu I led a 4 days-long training workshop for the Navarra Dance Company cooperating with the András Lóránt Company at the beginning of February in Tîrgu-Mureș, Romania. Considering they are working on a new project – named Farida – I focused on finding exercises which aim both to increase the artistic expressivity and develop high-level readiness of the performers and to help them to deeply connect with their characters as well. Thank you for the wonderful and committed ensemble and I wish them deep artistic research and fully successful performance as a result. HERE you can find the photos and a promo video of our work.
Cooperating with three other colleagues – Esztella Levko, Sebastián Cortés, and Mátyás Marofka – we had led a two-day-long workshop on physical methods of actor training in Budapest organized by Ladder Art Company. The cooperation as common research on actor training was fully inspiring. Thanks to the participants, who worked with engagement, trust, and open-mindedness. Special thanks to the INspiral Circus Center for the place they gave us. If you missed this session, follow the facebook page of the Kis Színház to get the latest news. The pictures of the workshop will be uploaded soon.
One of the participants posted a review on her blog about the workshop we led with Judith Bruynzeels and Carl Anders Hollender in Utrecht, Netherlands this summer. Thank you very much for the kind words Helen Tenisson. CHECK IT OUT HERE.
We performed our adaptation of A Streetcar Named Desire directed by Rakesh Palisetty at Columbia University for director’s assignment in Anne Bogart’s class. The concept was inspired by the Shining. Thanks all of my colleagues: Hannah Benjamin, Kelley Nicole Dugan, David Hamilton és Samuel Singletary.
We made a fully engaging research and rehearsal process on a Miss Julie scene and had a successful presentation again at the Comlumbia University. Thanks Rakesh Palisetty for casting me as Jean and Hannah Benjamin and Kelley Nicole Dugan for making this artistic trip together as partners.
