* Theatre w/Anatoly *
There are several service pages with one goal -- to help the visitors to find their way around this site.

Theatre w/Anatoly was created to help me and then my students in my classes, but this web-support in learning theatre is opened for all. Send your comments, recommendations, reports -- we all are "under construction" all the time; the webpages are only represent our changes...

FAQ @ Theatre w/Anatoly

Shakespeare - CLASSES directory
Oh! I am glad you didn't give up on me yet!

This page is what the big sites call "help" or don't email us!

The basic message is help yourself!

So, here are some common questions I do not answer:

What school can you recommend? (I can't do it without knowing you, your resume, portfolio, etc, which takes hours of advising).

Where can I find...

I need a list of books on... (do your own search).

... ASAP ...

I answer only emails addressed to me, i.e. from somebody who looked through my pages, read them and then asked.

I do not have service or complains departments -- if theGlobe is down, please ask them. If you are using Netscape, you might have some problems with formating pages. Sorry, I use Explorer and can't check all the pages through the Netscape.

I have another FAQ @ Film-North with more things I do not do.

You can link to my pages anytime without asking and can submit your URL by yourself at the links page. I recommend to submit serious webpages to Open Directory (I'll review them).

I try my best with the HTML and spelling, but, since I build and learn everything online, you have to wait when I will get better. Your assistance is more than welcome.

Navigation & WEB Design: each page has "four corners." Left -- Content Frames, right -- Service/Support Tables, top -- Headlines/Summary, bottom -- Notes. The content is in the middle, the body of the pages.

Of course, most of the pages are nothing more than my notes, not finished texts. All are updated only, when I read them (I removed the "under construction" signs, because the Web is by definition always under construction).

If nothing urgent, leave your message in the GuestBook. You also can join my class (DramLit, for example, or even get enrolled for credits -- see University of Alaska Fairbanks).

There are some archives from 1992-94 Russian-American Theatre Project at RAT Directory.

About me = Family, see Sellassie websites.

Most of my writing -- Russian Page (plays, translations, non-fiction and, yes, about my first, Soviet, life).

The old pages have some music files, turn it off, if it bothers you. (It's the leftovers from the time when I was learning HTML and webbing).

Next stage? So far it was web-publishing; if I will time and energy I will transform it into webcasting! See VIRTUAL THEATRE

Oh, yes, the news -- "3 Sisters" egroup (Method Acting), Anatoly List and vTheatre -- subscribe yourself! Virtual Theatre is for actors/directors to discuss the new aesthetics of the Cyber Media...

Respect for Acting In her introduction to Respect for Acting, actress and teacher Uta Hagen talks about a time when she herself had no respect for the art of acting. "I used to accept opinions such as: 'You're just born to be an actor'; 'Actors don't really know what they're doing on stage'; 'Acting is just instinct--it can't be taught.'" But this attitude of "you got it or you don't" is fundamentally one that denigrates the craft, as she points out. Great actors do not perform effortlessly, or merely through learning the appropriate tricks and cheats to manipulate an audience. Great acting is about the difficult fusion of intellect and action--about sincerely and truthfully connecting to the moment, your fellow actors, and the audience--and Hagen's thoughtful and profound book contains a series of observations and exercises to help an actor do just that. Her prose style is admirably clear and filled with examples from her own lengthy career both as a performer and in the classroom. While her exercises in sense memory and basic objects skirt close to the sort of self-absorption that followers of "the Method" are routinely accused of, they are presented clearly and with a focus on practical results. And in such places as her chapter "Practical Problems," which includes discussions of stage nerves and how to stay fresh in a long run, her straightforward advice is invaluable.
