Theater director and actor with more than 15 years of experience gives lesons on theater making: acting, writing, stage designing, etc...

Methodology

My teaching method is rooted in the words of Viola Spolin: "theater techniques are in fact communication techniques" and in the belief that acting talent sleeps in each of us and one only needs the right teacher to help him/her find the courage to wake it up and then to develop it together with patience, attention and constant communication at all levels in the relation between teacher and student which is a mutual learning relation. The levels of communication which I have in mind are verbal, non-verbal and subtle and by subtle I mean everything we transmit through thoughts and intentions which do not manifest at any perceptible through the senses level but which exist and influence people, sometimes perhaps more than those which are manifested.

During the courses, an attempt is made to bring the students closer to this subtle level of communication so that the participants become more and more aware of what they do/say, on stage and/or in life, more, or rather less, intentionally.

The method starts from the individual, encourages the originality of each participant and at the same time proposes a form of development that is only possible in a group. So in addition to the individual development exercises at the level of diction, stage mobility, spontaneity, the method focuses on exercises and games that create cohesion in the group.

From the very beginning of the work the desire of the group of either ending the class with a show or not is taken into consideration. If the group is choosing to end the class with a show, then all these games and exercises are preparing the group for the moment when they will interact with the written text or with the idea of ​​the future show which is then built exactly on the principles on which a show is built with professionals because by then, during the meetings, the students became beginner professionals.

Background

In 2012 I founded the NGO "Original Events" in order to be able to dedicate myself to working with children, youngsters and grownups: until March 2020, I regularly held theater workshops for children youngsters and grownups at kindergartens, schools, high schools and different companies.
On average, I worked with around 130 students (children, youngsters, grownups) per week in several groups.

I staged nationwide in Romania, among others in: Oradea, Bucharest, Sfantu Gheorghe, Lugoj, Timisoara, Constanta.
In 2007 I directed the intercultural theater project of the Literaturhaus Stuttgart and the German cultural center Timisoara "Tempo! Tempo!".

Between 2015 and 2019 I led directing workshops at the T4T Festival (theater festival for young people) in Temesvar.
