Free online Introduction to Meyerhold and Physical Actor Training

11 February, 2014

Colleagues might be interested to have a look at this experimental online course lead by Professor Jonathan Pitches, University of Leeds, UK. 

It comprises three weeks of video lectures, online forums, and practical tutorials, with the space for students to upload evidence of their own experimentation with Meyerhold’s études.  Please do share it with your students. There is a short teaser video here:

And students can register here.

It's all entirely free, and it will be followed up with a scrutiny of the pluses and minuses of Arts-based MOOCs after the first run of this course, starting on March 10th for 3 weeks.
