Including a foreword by Simon Callow, a dedicated admirer of the Maly, Dodin and the Maly Drama Theatre provides both a valuable methodological model for actor training and a unique insight into the journeys taken from studio to stage.

This is the first ever full-length study of internationally-acclaimed theatre company, the Maly Drama Theatre of St. Petersburg, and its director, Lev Dodin.Maria Shevtsova provides an illuminating insight into Dodin's directorial processes and the company's actor 4raining, devising and rehearsal methods, which she interweaves with detailed analysis of the Maly's main productions.

Dodin and the Maly Drama Theatre: Process to Performance demonstrates how the impact of Dodin's work extends far beyond that of his native Russia, and gives the reader unparalleled access to the company's practice.

Industry Reviews

"This study will delight Dodin fans, especially since it is written by such a committed and lucid enthusiast." -Nick Worral, "Slavic Review, 06/2005 "I really enjoyed this very readable book by a respected scholar. It is sufficiently comprehensive to convey a full impression of Dodin's work to readers who have not seen production." -Peta Tait, La Trobe University, "Modern Drama, Summer 2005
