  • About the Russian Acting Seminar:
This popular acting series les by award-winning Russian director Aleksey Burago returns to New York on December 1
In acting, being spontaneous and reacting to our partner is only the beginning of our work. The actor as an artist should develop a strong inner discipline. This includes acquiring a heightened concentration, a versatile voice, an expressive body, and a powerful imagination. Your job on stage is to re-create the life of the human spirit, but to do so, you should first have mastery over your own.
In these weekly sessions, students will examine the ideas and acting methods by some of Russia’s most prominent theater artists. Students will warm-up with selected theater games, exercises and creative group work. In the second part of class, they will look at the method of physical action, script analysis, and theatre ethics based on the methods of Konstantin Stanislavsky and traditional Russian theater schools. Assignments will include acting and directing exercises, monologues and scene work specifically geared to each student’s needs, interests and level of experience.

  • About Russian Arts Theater & Studio:

The Russian Arts Theater & Studio was founded in 2004 by Artistic Director Aleksey Burago and acclaimed actress Snezhana Chernova. Having both graduated from distinguished theater academies—namely, the Moscow Academy of Theater Arts (GITIS) and the St. Petersburgh Academy of Theater Arts, they brought forward their extensive study and experience in hopes of creating a New York theater company that would pass on the rich theater traditions and practices of Stanislavski and Michael Chekhov as well as introducing lesser-known Russian repertoire to American audiences.

Since it’s beginning, the company has provided many critically-acclaimed shows for the New York community, including adaptations, new translations, short stories and plays by Pushkin, Chekhov, Gogol, Gorky, Bulgakov and Bunin.

Currently, our mission is two-fold. Firstly, through the exploration of new theatrical works as well as progressive re-imaginings of classics, we aim to preserve, promote and advance Russian arts and heritage in New York City.  Secondly, through an affordable and accessible theater education program, we aim to train a new generation of imaginative, innovative, and sincere artists capable of serving the mission for generations to come.
