Abstract:

"Provoking Theater: Kama Ginkas Directs explores the genius of Kama Ginkas, one of Russia's most acclaimed theater directors working today. Through co-authors John Freedman's format of "questions and monologues" Ginkas illuminates the dynamics of his creative process. He offers no simple formulas, yet his lively discussions reveal the secrets of a master creator. Theater professionals and students alike will gain invaluable insights as Ginkas explains how one must take risks and make demands in the theater. Steeped in the Stanislavsky system and inspired by the Russian avant-garde as developed by Vsevolod Meyerhold, Ginkas has developed a unique vision. His productions at Moscow's New Generation Theater are a must-see for those seeking the best in cutting edge theater.

His challenging productions of K.I. from "Crime" by Dostoevsky, performed at Bard College's Fisher Center for the Performing Arts, and The Lady with the Lapdog at the American Repertory Theater, were major theater events in the United States in 2003"--Jacket.
