From Komisarjevsky in the 1920s, to Cheek by Jowl 's Russian
sister company almost a century later, Russian actor training has
had a unique influence on modern British theatre. Russians in
Britain, edited by Jonathan Pitches, is the first work of its type
to identify a relationship between both countries theatrical
traditions as continuous as it is complex.
Unravelling new strands of transmission and translation linking
the great Russian migr practitioners to the second and third
generation artists who responded to their ideas, Russians in
Britain takes in:
- Komisarjevsky and the British theatre establishment.
- Stanislavsky in the British conservatoire.
- Meyerhold in the academy.
- Michael Chekhov in the private studio.
- Littlewood 's Theatre Workshop and the Northern Stage
- Katie Mitchell, Declan Donnellan and Michael Boyd.
Charting a hitherto untold story with historical and
contemporary implications, these nine essays present a compelling
alternative history of theatrical practice in the UK.
