The S Word:
Stanislavsky's Last Words...

11th – 13th November 2022
An international symposium presented by DAMU
and The Stanislavsky Research Centre.

Call for proposals

Stanislavsky's heroic struggle to complete his life's mission in the last four years of his life ran in two parallel lines which can be considered complementary. His practical research developed in the form of Active Analysis/Method of physical actions and his documenting the System, recollecting and reworking his older texts and experiences. This laid the ground for a potential dichotomy and uncertainty in respect of the transmission of live practice and methodology.

This symposium will focus on the problems of the transmission of Stanislavsky's final research in its artistic, socio-political and broadly historical context and follow its contemporary re-discovery and renewal, explored through the sharing of both theoretical and practical research.

We now invite proposals for the following:

  • paper presentations (20 minutes)
  • workshops (40 minutes)
  • panel debates of a minimum of 3 speakers (60 minutes)

Please submit your proposal (not more than 300 words) and a brief biography to arrive before Thursday 1st September.

Proposals should be sent by email to Prof. Paul Fryer.
