Anatoly Smeliansky 

 Professor Anatoly Smeliansky delivering his opening keynote speech at the Prague Symposium of The S Word (2017)


Following on from the past three successful editions of the Symposium, we are very pleased to announce the Call for Papers/Presentations for the fourth major event of ‘The S Word’ project. 

In choosing ‘Stanislavski in Context’ as its title, the 2019 edition of ‘The S Word’ Symposium shows a dual ambition. It invites proposals that reflect on Stanislavski’s work within the social, cultural, and political milieus in which it developed without however forgetting the ways in which this work was transmitted, adapted, and appropriated within recent and current theatre contexts. The Symposium’s reach, therefore, is both historical as well as contemporary, and participants are encouraged to think of Stanislavski both as an instigator of modern theatre as well as a paradigm for performance practices within twenty-first-century training and performance scenarios.  

We invite proposals for contributions in the following formats:

• an individual conventional paper (20 minutes);

• practical/workshop sessions (40 minutes);

• panel presentations (a minimum of three participants) (60 minutes);

• and, for the first time this year, practice-as-research sessions/practical presentations (20 minutes).

Submission of Abstracts:

In the first instance, please send a short written proposal (no more than 300 words) to Professor Paul Fryer and Dr Stefan Aquilina Abstract Submission Deadline: 30 November 2018. Please include a short bionote.
