Anatoli Vassiliev: At the heart of theatrical pedagogy, Rigor and anarchy,

Éditions L’Entretemps, Collection the ways of the actor, 277p, Vic-la-Gardiole, 2006


This work received theGeorges Jamati Prize (literary prize which rewards each year a work dealing with theatrical aesthetics).


"Stéphanie Lupo brings a unique testimony and an insight from the inside on the pedagogy of one of the major figures of contemporary Russian theater. She traces the evolution of the director's style based on the work of the shadows that he undertakes in his "laboratory". From the method of study inherited from Stanislavski, to the verbal technique used for the dramatic poetry of Heiner Muller, the work reveals the successive stages of a monumental research regularly alternating between theater of men and spiritual aspiration.”
