Women Behind the Scenes: Stanislavsky, the System and Female Actors
The Stanislavsky System, which has been practiced in the US for over 80 years, is wrapped in the lore of facts and legends, conflicting teaching approaches, failures and international acting successes. In fact, it mirrors the path of its development. In my presentation, I will talk about female actors, who have contributed to every single stage of the System from Stanislavsky’s first experiments until his death, as muses, reluctant followers, saboteurs, faithful colleagues, and devotees.
International Legend to Contemporary Influencer: Building the Legacy of Marcel Marceau at Ohio State
In this lecture, Professor Thompson will share a little bit about herself as an artist and will speak about her work with world-renowned mime artist, Marcel Marceau. She will address what they accomplished together, and how that work has influenced: the development of the OSU Theatre Research Institute Library’s Marcel Marceau Special Collection Archive; research that utilizes Marceau’s motion capture data; and the dream to development a first-of-it’s-kind program here at Ohio State.
