Join us for a talk on Researching Early 20th-century Russian Theatre by Dr Stefan Aquilina. Lunch will be provided at 12.30; the talk begins at 1pm.

Stefan Aquilina is Director of Research and Internationalisation of the School of Performing Arts and Theatre Studies at the University of Malta. His research focus is Russian modernism, especially Stanislavsky and Meyerhold, but he has wider interest in the cultural transmission of embodied practice, devised performance, and reflective teaching. His publications include the co-edited volumes Stanislavsky in the World: The System and its Transformation across Continents (with Jonathan Pitches) and Interdisciplinarity in the Performing Arts: Contemporary Perspectives (with Malaika Sarco-Thomas). Aquilina is the director of Cultural Transmission of Actor Training Techniques, a research project investigating how training techniques are transformed when transmitted across cultures (www.ctatt.org).

This event is supported by the TORCH Theatre and Performance network, and is organised in collaboration with Creative Multilingualism.
