Meyerhold's Biomechanics Workshop with Stephen Hudson

Meyerhold's Biomechanics Workshop with Stephen Hudson



Saturday 13th January, 10am-4pm

Stephen is a director, actor and teacher working within conservatoire training. He currently works at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, and at East 15 Acting School. He also set up the Sussex based, award winning theatre company The Brighton Laboratory. He has trained extensively in Biomechanics under the Russian Master Gennadi Bogdanov, himself trained by Nikolai Kustov, who collaborated with Meyerhold on the development of Actor’s Biomechanics. Stephen teaches Biomechanics both as a way to develop the actor’s physical capabilities in relation to strength, flexibility and specificity, and the corresponding emotional and psychological responses to eternal stimuli, but also as a means to a greater understanding of a Stanislavskian approach to text and character.

Biomechanics, created by Russian director Vsevolod Meyerhold (1874-1940), is a rigorous physical training based on the premise that in order to be imaginatively free the actor must by physically free. It trains the actor’s physical dexterity, elasticity and responsiveness.

Meyerhold, a renowned actor and director with the Moscow Art Theatre, regarded movement, gesture, space and rhythm, as the primary elements of the ‘language of theatre.’ He dreamed of retheatricalizing the theatre, of creating a theatre that would give its audience truthful images of life but that wouldn’t seek to imitate or copy life, a theatre capable of revealing ‘inner dialogue by means of the music of plastic movement.’ Meyerhold’s work over three decades resulted in his system of Theatrical Biomechanics.

This workshop will be of interest to all Drama teachers, in particular those delivering A Level Drama, BTEC and Cambridge Technicals in Performing Arts.
